  • The 91st annual Academy Awards take place on Feb. 24th at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
  • The nominees are out and there are not many surprises.
  • There are big favorites in a few major categories, like Best Picture and Best Director.

This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 2019 Oscars (February 24, Dolby Theatre, LA). Roma and The Favourite led the way with 10 nominations apiece, while Black Panther became the first superhero movie to earn a Best Picture nomination.

Below, find our in-house odds on who will win each of the major categories. To see the odds that online betting sites are offering, go to our Academy Awards odds tracker.

Aside from the whole issue about the host — or lack thereof — this year’s Oscars may be history in the making. Roma, Alfonso Cuaron’s Spanish/Mixtec-language film, is the early favorite to win Best Picture, according to both our cinema experts and real sportsbooks.

Cuaron, himself, may be the biggest lock of the entire ceremony in the Best Director category.
