2022 Oscars: Most popular markets

Some of the greatest movies ever made appear in the list of Best Picture winners at the Oscars. The competition to be the latest entrant on such an illustrious list is certain to be as ferocious as ever. That’s despite the film industry being hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, which closed movie theatres all over the world.

When Dune premiered at the Venice Film Festival, director Denis Villeneuve received the longest standing ovation in the festival's history as the credits rolled. The sci-fi classic has been given the blockbuster bombast and was expected to feature heavily at the Academy Awards where it won six awards. Dune would, however, miss out the Best Picture Oscar: losing to independent coming-of-age film, CODA .

Oscars betting tips

Oscars betting online is great fun and adds to the glitz and glamor of an enthralling night. But it’s worth doing a little bit of research in the countdown to the event. While the identity of the winners is a closely guarded secret, there is always plenty of gossip flying around that may help with your Oscars predictions.

Check Oscars betting sites in the days before the event. Sometimes there is a very clear favorite in a market and it is clear that some inside knowledge has been at work.

Most markets are fairly wide given the time until the awards, but The Power of the Dog (Best Picture) and Kristen Stewart (Best Actress) are early favorites, meaning there is plenty of value to be had elsewhere.
