The Irishman didn’t make it past the cutting room floor in time to be considered for the 91st Academy Awards, but perhaps the wait was worth it for Netflix’s 2020 contender.  The more-or-less true mob story runs over 3 hour, following one man’s rise through organized crime – and his eventual involvement with the famously disappeared Jimmy Hoffa.

Directed by Martin Scorsese and starring the genre’s best (De Niro, Pesci, Pacino), The Irishman has that something the Academy voters love: it is the final piece in a long-standing and highly acclaimed career.

Despite running against some other heavy-hitters (Tarantino, anyone?), the finality of the film and those behind it smells of early Oscars success.

Best Actor Odds

Best Actor Top Contender Odds

  • [Nov. 22] A somber take on a well-known villain sees Joaquin Phoenix’s odds for Best Actor open at -220.

Actor Odds to Win Best Actor at BookMaker.eu
Joaquin Phoenix (Joker) -220
Adam Driver (Marriage Story) +310
Robert De Niro (The Irishman) +1400
Eddie Murphy (Dolemite Is My Name) +3300
Leonardo DiCaprio (Once Upon A Time In Hollywood) +5000

Whether you loved it or hated it, Todd Phillips’ Joker proved once and again that Joaquin Phoenix will go where he needs to go as an actor. His physical performance of a man caught within the nightmare of his own mind, navigating a complex world, is without a doubt nomination-worthy. Will it also be awards-earning?

His closest contender is Adam Driver, who carries enough physical and emotional intensity for 10 men within his one body. From the small screen (GIRLS; HBO) to a galaxy far, far away (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Driver plays every character with a physicality you often only see live on a stage.

Critics of his take on the role have said it’s a bit too theatre-school-101, but Driver says that “performance” was actually one of the film’s biggest themes.
