The 2021 SAG Awards betting odds on the film favorites are now available, after the list of nominees came out on 4 February. The films that lead the charge in main categories are ‘Da 5 Bloods’, ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’, and ‘Chicago 7’.
The 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony is scheduled for 4 April. At online sportsbooks in the United States, the film nominees and their 2021 SAG Awards betting odds are available. It is very significant for the nominees to win the SAG Awards because that will be reflective of the Academy Awards 2021 bets. ‘Parasite’ own top honors at SAG Awards before winning the Oscars. Also ‘Shakespeare in Love’ 1998, ‘Crash’ 2005, and ‘Spotlight’ 2015 all won the SAG Awards before winning the Oscars.
The 2021 SAG Awards seeks to honor the best achievements in film and television acting from the year 2020. The winners will be decided by more than 100,000 actors, recording artists, radio personalities, and other media figures who make up the SAG-AFTRA union. So far among the favorites are ‘Da 5 Bloods’, ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,’ and ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’.
Boseman leads for the Best Actor award
At 22BET Sportsbook, Chadwick Boseman is the top favorite with 1.33 odds to win the Best Actor award. He is nominated for his final film ‘Ma Rainy’s Black Bottom’. The film was released in December after Boseman’s tragic death. For all of Boseman’s fans, it was an explosive performance that will always be remembered.
However, there is a tough contest with Anthony Hopkins for his role in ‘The Father’. Hopkins plays the role of an 80-year-old father who suffers from dementia. His strong performance makes him the second favorite with 4 odds. There is also the surprising nominee Steven Yeun for the ‘Minari’, but it is hard to see him win over Boseman and Hopkins despite his 17 odds.
Davis rightfully the favorite for the Best Actress
Viola Davis for ‘Ma Rainy’s Black Bottom’ is among the top favorites to win the Best Actress award with a 2.85 value. She is not only the favorite at the 2021 SAG awards betting odds but also the favorite for the Oscars. Among her top rivals is Carey Mulligan for ‘Promising Young Woman’ with 2 odds. Mulligan has been on course to build momentum. Also, Amy Adams for “Hillbilly Elegy” has a strong chance of winning with 17. However, very few expected Adams to receive the nomination.
2021 SAG awards betting odds on the Best Supporting Actor
This film category has been overcrowded. Many were hopeful to land the nomination for this year. But eventually, only five actors managed to get the nomination. Leslie Odom Jr for ‘One Night in Miami’ is on the shortlist with 3 odds to win. Chadwick Boseman (15) is also among the favorites for his role in ‘Da 5 Bloods’ which came out two months before his death. What is more, Sacha Baron Cohen for ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ has a great chance with a 3.74 value.
Yuh-Jung and Close lead for the Best Supporting Actress
The Korean movie star Youn Yuh-Jung who plays the charming grandmother in ‘Minari’ values 7.5 to win the award. Her value comes as a big surprise as many online sportsbook news sites in the United States did not expect Yuh-Jong to get the nomination. Glenn Close for her role in ‘Hillbilly Elegy’ is also a favorite with 2.1. However, it is better not to count out Olivia Colman for her role as a daughter in ‘The Father’. Her odds are 2.62 to win.
Either ‘Da 5 Bloods’ or ‘Chicago 7’ will win the Best Ensemble
The Best Ensemble award is given for the finest acting of a group in a film. ‘Da 5 Bloods’ which involves Four African American vets who return to Vietnam, is a huge favorite with 1.47 odds. ‘Chicago 7’ has also an immersive and strong cast which tells a very strong story of the political counterculture of the 1960s. Thus it is strongly favored to win with 13 odds.
