Making the Right Selections
Considering there are no odds to worry about when making selections, it makes things a little bit easier. For example, Chadwick Boseman is listed as a -1667 favorite to win Best Actor at the 93rd Academy Awards. Something very drastic would have to happen for Boseman not to win this award at those odds.
The Best Picture category paints a similar landscape. Nomadland was listed at +1750 back in November but is now a massive -670 favorite to win the award. After bringing home Best Drama Motion Picture at the Golden Globes, it seems as if Nomadland is a shoo-in at these odds.
However, there are some categories that are very close, including the Best Actress award. Carey Mulligan is the current favorite at +125, but Viola Davis is right behind her at +200. That being said, Davis was the favorite to win the award back in February in the 93rd Academy Awards odds.
