Updated – La La Land looking very well set for Academy Awards success

27th January 2017 by techadmin facebook 2 mins read Category: Entertainment

With the Golden Globes done and dusted, the bookies have been quickly revising their Oscar odds!

And with musical La La Land all but sweeping the board on Sunday 8th January, everyone from Bet 365 to Ladbrokes via Boylesports and Betfair has Damien Chazelle’s picture odds-on to bring home the blue riband – the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture – come Sunday 26th February.

At 2/5 to pick up the gong won last year by ace journalism drama Spotlight, La La Land is leagues ahead of nearest rivals Moonlight (5/1) and Manchester By The Sea (10/1).

And while Whiplash helmer Chazelle is at 1/4 to scoop the Best Director award, leading lady Emma Stone is at 6/5 to be named Best Actress.

But what price lead actor Ryan Gosling completing a clean sweep? Not good if the bookies are to be believed. But if Manchester By The Sea’s Casey Affleck is the solid 2/7 favourite, La La Land’s affability could yet see everyone’s favourite Canadian waltz off with Oscar.

Update – In the wake of the Oscar nominations being announced on Tuesday 24th November, the latest Oscar odds are…

Best Picture – La La Land (1/6, Bet365), Moonlight (9/2), Manchester By The Sea (12/1), Hidden Figures (40/1), Hacksaw Ridge (66/1), Fences (80/1), Hell Or High Water (100/1), Arrival (100/1), Lion (100/1)
