Betting on The 2021 Oscars Sub Categories

  • Daniel Kaluuya is favored to win Best Supporting Actor with -3000 odds.
  • Yuh-Jung Youn is a -600 favorite to win Best Supporting Actress.
  • Nomadland is a -450 favorite to win Best Cinematography.

LOS ANGELES - The 2021 Academy Awards - perhaps better known as the Oscars - will be kicking off on Sunday at 8:00 p.m. EST and will be live on ABC for anyone who wishes to follow along.

With so many categories up for grabs, there are plenty of betting odds to be found, so let’s look at some of the slightly smaller categories, and avoid the big ones like Best Actor, Best Picture, and Best Director.

Odds To Win Best Supporting Actor

  • Daniel Kaluuya (Judas And The Black Messiah) -3000
  • Paul Raci (Sound Of Metal) +1200
  • Sacha Baron Cohen (The Trial Of The Chicago 7) +1400
  • Leslie Odom, Jr. (One Night In Miami) +1600
  • LaKeith Stanfield (Judas And The Black Messiah) +3300

There was some controversy around nominating both LaKeith Stanfield and Daniel Kaluuya for this category, as opposed to nominating one of them for Best Actor.

However, it seems to have resulted in Kaluuya being the runaway favorite to win this award, with -3000 odds to come away with the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

Stanfield, on the other hand, is at the bottom of the odds boards.

Odds To Win Best Supporting Actress

  • Yuh-Jung Youn (Minari) -600
  • Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm) +400
  • Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy) +1100
  • Olivia Colman (The Father) +2500
  • Amanda Seyfried (Mank) +3500

Yuh-Jung Youn’s performance in Minari has her as a notable favorite to win Best Supporting Actress, although there is more competition in this category than in its male equivalent.

Maria Bakalova of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is the closest competitor Yuh-Jung Youn has, according to the online sportsbooks.

Still, -600 odds are fairly steep, and this close to the awards ceremony, one has to wonder if the sportsbooks might know something that the public does not.

Odds To Win Best Cinematography

  • Nomadland -450
  • Mank +300
  • News Of The World +1600
  • Judas And The Black Messiah +2200
  • The Trial Of The Chicago 7 +2800

Nomadland is one of the top contenders to win multiple awards at the Oscars this year, and it’s not surprising to see it at the top of the odds for Best Cinematography.

This category is quasi-competitive, but it’s mostly a competition between Nomadland and Mank, which has +300 odds.

The other three films entered in this category look like also-rans in terms of how the online sportsbooks see their chances of winning.

Odds To Win Best Original Screenplay

  • Promising Young Woman -400
  • The Trial Of The Chicago 7 +275
  • Minari +1400
  • Judas And The Black Messiah +2200
  • Sound Of Metal +3300

Best Original Screenplay has very similar odds to Best Cinematography - a favorite in the -400 range, a second favorite at around +300, and then the odds fall off sharply.

In this case, Promising Young Woman is the odds on favorite, while The Trial Of The Chicago 7 is the second favorite.

Entertainment betting fans have a lot of different wagers to take when it comes to betting on the 2021 Academy Awards.
