2017 marks yet another great film year. As per tradition, the British Academy of Film and TV Arts will crown the Best Director for 2018 BAFTA. On February 18, the winner will be announced at Royal Albert Hall in London. Ranging from American, Mexican to British directors, who will get the honour of taking the awards home? Together, let’s have a look at the betting odds of BAFTA Awards for Best Director!
1. Christopher Nolan (91/100)
One of the most famous names in the directing world, Christopher Nolan, is the bookie’s favourite to win Best Director for 2018 BAFTA. According to online sportsbook sites in UK, Nolan’s odds of winning are at a whopping 91/100 for his direction of Dunkirk. Previously, the American-British Director has also received the 2018 Australian Academy Awards for Best Direction!
Dunkirk captures war on land, water and air. Nolan has been working on this film for more than 20 years. He wanted to make sure his vision could fully translate on the big screen. His tremendous efforts are precisely why Nolan should win Best Director for 2018 BAFTA.
2. Martin McDonagh (10/1)
Next up, we have the Irish-British Director Martin McDonagh who is the man behind Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Online gambling sites in UK estimate the odds for McDonagh to be Best Director for 2018 BAFTA at a decent 10/1. What’s more? It looks like McDonagh’s film is ready to gain more than one BAFTA Awards this year.
The betting odds show us that Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is the bookie’s favourite to win both Best Picture (77/125) and Best British Film (1/5). So, we have to give McDonagh credit for directing this highly successful film!
