As the night of 18th of February edges nearer and nearer, film-lovers eagerly wait for the 2018 BAFTA Awards announcement. In the meantime, let us have a look at the Best British Film for 2018 BAFTA betting odds for the long shot gambles!
The Best British Film Award category is reserved for films which have significant creative involvement from British individuals. According to UK online gambling news, there are six nominations in total. Before we proceed to tell you the long shot Best British Film for 2018 BAFTA betting odds, you might want to check out our betting guide on Best Director as well as the Best Actress.
Paddington 2 (25/1)
Paddington was a big comedic hit in 2014. Not only was it a commercial success, it was also nominated as Best British Film for BAFTA that year! Now that Paddington 2 is out, online sportsbook sites in UK predict 25/1 odds for it to win Best British Film for BAFTA 2018. We think that BAFTA should finally award this British live-action animated film!
God’s Own Country (11/1)
One of the strongest British film debuts this year has to be God’s Own Country (11/1). The reason why it has quite high winning odds is from winning multiple British Independent Film Awards 2018, including the Best British Independent Film. If God’s Own Country is popular in the British film community, does it not warrant a Best British Film for BAFTA 2018 as well?
The Death of Stalin (16/1)
Finally, we have a film loosely based on true story called The Death of Stalin. According to online gambling sites in UK, The Death of Stalin’s odds to win Best British Film for BAFTA 2018 are at 16/1. A statement to the film’s impact is the way the Russian government banned it from cinema. Content-wise, The Death of Stalin is a little bit too sensitive. The film is a dark comedic take on the chaos after Soviet Dictator Stalin’s death in the 1950s.
