Currently, nine nominees are racing for the main Academy Award. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and “1917” are the front-runners among Oscar best-picture odds. While Tarantino’s film was released early in 2019, “1917” has stormed into the race only six weeks ago. Both of the movies were nominated in 10 different categories.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood – Tarantino’s revenge fantasy
Usually, the early premiere date could decrease the film’s chances to win the award. However, this wasn’t the case with the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. The latest Tarantino movie features Hollywood actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) changing the course of history. Giving an alternative look at the terrifying story of Tate-LaBianca murders, Tarantino manages to convey the ambiance of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The authenticity of costumes and decorations also transport the viewer directly into the heart of 1969 Los Angeles.
Online gambling sites in the US feature that the movie’s potential success is based on three major factors. Not only the film is a huge box-office boom, but it also has an all-star cast and it is about the old movie industry. According to the 1xBet Sportbook Oscar Best-Picture odds, chances for the movie to win are very high (4.0).
1917 – WWI in almost a single-shot
The late-comer in the award race, 1917 by Sam Mandes immediately challenges for the lead. The main events unfold during the First World War, where two British privates have to complete the impossible. Schofield and Blake need to infiltrate into the hostile territory and deliver the message that will save thousands of lives. “1917” also looks like a one-shot-film, making the picture look even more realistic.
Sam Mandes takes the war-movie genre to the new level by introducing complicated filming techniques. The movie also has a strong emotional appeal to the viewers. Online betting sites in the US rank the “1917” among the strongest features of 2020 – “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”, “Irishman” and “Parasite”. Finally, the film leads the Oscar Best Picture predictions with 1.55 odds on the 1xBet Sportbook.
