The list of nominees at the 25th annual Critics Choice Awards 2020 betting odds is available, and it looks quite impressive. “The Irishman” leads the race with 14 nominations. But, “Joker” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” have also a good chance to win in a few categories.
The Critics Choice Awards will be given on January 12 as online sportsbook news in the US reported. They will honor the best movies of 2019 and the actors, directors, and artists. A group of domestic-based movie critics is responsible for choosing the winners. However, at the Critics Choice Awards 2020 betting odds, we can already identify a number of the frontrunners. On top is Scorsese’s mobster-movie masterpiece “The Irishman”. Sure you can make a host of your own predictions, by checking out our review about 22BET Sportsbook.
“The Irishman” is the one to beat in several categories based on Critics Choice Awards 2020 Betting Odds
Martin Scorsese’s mobster epic is based on Charles Brant’s true-crime book “I Heard You Paint Houses”. It stretches through three and a half hours, providing a great lesson on the infrastructure of organized crime from the ground up. The film is the favorite at online sportsbooks in the US, and the one to beat in several categories.
One of its exciting features is the high-tech de-aging technology that allows the actors to play themselves across the years or the decades. For that reason along with many other reasons, “The Irishman” leads for the Best Picture with 1.75 odds at 22BET sportsbook. Another well-deserved award is the Best Actor for Robert De Niro. If ever an actor had the role of a lifetime, this is it. Besides, the decades-spanning cinematic summit of De Niro, Pacino and Pesci will most likely win the Best Acting Ensemble. Not to mention, Martin Scorsese the maestro of mob cinema to win the Best Director.
Phoenix’s performance in “Joker” is just great
“Joker” received seven nods, and it is running in a tight contest in several top categories. The most important one is the Best Actor for Phoenix who gave an immersive performance and became the frontrunner almost the moment the movie hit the screen. No doubt that he deserves to be the winner with a value of 1.66 at Critics Choice Awards 2020 betting odds.
The film also competes for the Best Picture and the Best Adapted Screenplay. However, the storyline and the plot received mixed reactions. Some viewers loved it others hated it. Most probably because at some point in the film the end becomes very obvious. Thus, the only thing keeps the movie interesting is Phoenix’s great performance.
Brad Pit’s charm will likely win him the Best Supporting Actor at Critics Choice Awards 2020 based on the betting odds
Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is the second most nominated film in this year’s awards with 12 nods. But, Brad Pit looks the frontrunner for the Best Supporting Actor with 1.25. The other awards like Best Picture, Original Screenplay, Director, Actor, and Acting Ensemble might not go to “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. Simply because viewers did not receive the film as many expected. One reason is Margot Robbie’s lack of screen time, dialogue, and overall development. Another is violence against women. Besides, the film was boring for many who are disinterested in Hollywood’s pop culture.
Few Upsets to think of
Sam Mendes’ “1917” that tells the story of World War One has a chance for Best Director and Best Picture with odds respectively. “Little Women” made a great impression on the race, with notices for the Best Actress, Saoirse Ronan, and the Best Supporting Actress, Florence Pugh. In addition, Marriage Story’s Adam Driver landed a nomination for the Best Actor. But he is in contention not only with Phoenix and Di Niro but also with Uncut Gem’s Sandler ).
