What films people are betting on for 2020 Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars

Brad Pitt is a big favorite to be named Best Supporting Actor at the 2020 Oscars, but he’s got a stream of A-list celebrities behind him.

Oscars Night is coming, and the bettors are just as excited as the paparazzi for the 2020 Academy Awards. On Sunday, February 9th, you’ll see the best of Hollywood celebrating themselves and cinema Live from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

Brad Pitt’s work as Cliff Booth in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood has been universally praised, both for the depth of his work and the charisma he brings to the screen. He’s clearly portraying someone else, but the movie star we’ve know for almost 30 years shines through as well.

He’s possibly the biggest lock to win in any category on Sunday night, but he’s got plenty of A-listers behind him. Joe Pesci (the only that might might have a chance here), Tom Hanks, Al Pacino, and Anthony Hopkins all have won Oscars before. Pitt has, but as a producer and not an actor.

If you’re looking to bet this category, just parlay it with something else. It’s very likely Pitt is the winner here.

Below are the updated odds, as well as how much action is bet on each film, from DraftKings Sportsbook.
