Additionally, other nominees eyeing the Best Film award are Koirat eivät käytä housuja, Tottumiskysymys, Täydellinen joulu, and Diva of Finland.
The Jussi Awards will be live on 14 October 2020 at the Cable Factory in Helsinki, Finland. According to our 2020 Jussi Awards predictions, this is how the Best Film nominees winning chances stand on 22BET Sportsbook:

- Täydellinen joulu 7.50
- Diva of Finland 10.00
Aurora leads our 2020 Jussi Awards predictions for Best Film
Directed by Miia Tervo, 2019 film Aurora stands the best chance of winning the Jussi Award for Best Film. According to the online sportsbook news in Finland, the film has been positively reviewed domestically and internationally.
Consequently, the comedy has received 13 nominations, the most at the 2020 Jussi Awards. It’s safe to say that Tervo has definitely set the bar high after debuting her first full-length film Aurora.
Koirat eivät käytä housuja is second favourite Best Film Jussi Awards nominee
The erotic black comedy film translated as Dog’s Don’t Wear Pants was released in 2019 and directed by J-P Valkeapää. Although the film might not fit everyone tastes, it has promising odds of winning on the online sportsbooks in Finland.
In addition to the Best Film nomination, the film has also been nominated for eight other Jussi Awards. Furthermore, Koirat eivät käytä housuja has also received international recognition including a Molins Horror Film Festiva Best Film win.
Consequently, our Jussi Awards predictions say the film can achieve the same success in Finland with odds at 3.00.
Tottumiskysymys and Täydellinen joulu have also received 2020 Best Film Jussi Awards nominations
Currently, Tottumiskysymys is a third favorite for the Best Film win according to our 2020 Jussi Awards predictions. Translated as Force of Habit, the film is also up for three other awards such as a Jussi Award for Best Script.
According to 22BET Sportsbook, the director’s chances of claiming the Jussi Award stand at 4.50. Furthemore, another director looking to win a Jussi statue is Taru Mäkelä for her film Täydellinen joulu (Perfect Christmas). After the film’s premiere in October 2019, it was the third most-watched film in Finland.
This is thanks to its relatable comedic storyline which follows a family Christmas featuring exes, new partners and much more drama. However, it’s unlikely that the film will have a perfect ending at in the Best Film Jussi Awards category.
Unfortunately, Mäkelä’s film has the second-worst odds of winning the category with odds at 7.50.
Diva of Finland unlikely to walk away victorious in the Best Film category
According to our 2020 Jussi Awards predictions, Diva of Finland stands the worst chance of winning the Best Film category. Consequently, the drama-comedy directed by Maria Veijalainen will be a risky bet with odds at 10.00 on 22BET Sportsbook.
Fortunately, if Maria Veijalainen fails to claim the Best Film award, the film has two other Jussi nominations to grab. These include a 2020 Jussi award for Best Leading Actress (Suvi-Tuuli Teerinkoski) and for Best Music (Risto Ylihärsilä).
