Everything Everywhere All At Once Favored to Win Best Picture
As the 2023 Oscars have drawn closer, Everything Everywhere All At Once has become more and more of a lock to win Best Picture, currently sitting at -1100 in the odds. The beauty of its unprecedented success last year was that it was well-received by critics and moviegoers alike and can be enjoyed by all audiences.
The same types of films tend to take home Best Picture each year and Everything Everywhere shatters all of those preconceived notions. There’s no reason to bet against it, though The Fabelmans being ranked fifth in the odds at +3000 is somewhat surprising.
All of the films preceding it are also credible choices, but The Fabelman has already won so many awards that it would be shortsighted to not see it as more of a threat to Everything Everywhere.
Best Actor Odds & Pick
|Brendan Fraser (The Whale)||-165|
|Austin Butler (Elvis)||+120|
|Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin)||+1200|
|Paul Mescal (Aftersun)||+5000|
|Bill Nighy (Living)||+6500|
Brendan Fraser Favored to Win Best Actor
The career resurgence of Brendan Fraser has been Hollywood has been nothing short of sensational, and although Austin Butler is equally deserving of the Best Actor award for his remarkable performance as Elvis Presley in the titular film, not awarding the honor to the face of The Mummy franchise would be considered by many to be an injustice.
The Whale didn’t win as many Best Picture awards as expected, but Fraser’s role was second to none and is a safe choice. Butler trails Fraser closely in the Oscar odds at +120, and it wouldn’t be far-fetched to place bets on him, but none of the other nominees stand as much of a chance.
Best Actress Odds & Prediction
|Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All At Once)||-140|
|Cate Blanchett (Tar)||+100|
|Andrea Riseborough (To Leslie)||+1000|
|Michelle Williams (The Fabelmans)||+2800|
|Ana de Armas (Blonde)||+5000|
Michelle Yeoh Favored to Win Best Actress
With Everything Everywhere so heavily favored to win Best Picture, Michelle Yeoh being the top favorite to win Best Actress should be expected. The incredibly accomplished Cate Blanchett has been in this position before and would be deserving of the award, but a fresh face coming out on top in Yeoh would be best case scenario.
The only extreme longshot worth putting money on is Michelle Williams. The part she played in The Fabelmans can’t be overstated and makes her a likelier candidate than the betting odds suggest.
Ana de Armas also deserves praise for playing Marilyn Monroe despite Blonde itself being justifiably panned.
Best Director Odds & Prediction
|Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert (Everything Everywhere All At Once)||-1200|
|Steven Spielberg (The Fabelmans)||+600|
|Todd Field (Tar)||+2000|
|Martin McDonagh (The Banshees of Inisherin)||+2200|
|Ruben Ostlund (Triangle of Sadness)||+5000|
Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert Favored to Win Best Director
Everything Everywhere continues to sweep the 2023 Oscars with Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert dominating the Best Director odds at -1200. As noted, there’s no reason to bet against the beloved film, but there is definitely money in Steven Spielberg as a dark horse.
The Fabelmans is, of course, based on his illustrious life and career and it would only be fitting if he was honored for it. It isn’t a slam-dunk prediction but one that should be taken into consideration. Todd Field is a distant third at +2000 for his excellent work with Tar but is nowhere near as likely as the aforementioned films to emerge victorious in this stacked category.
