- The 2023 Academy Awards will be broadcast live on Sunday March 12th
- All at once, the best picture is expected to take home
- Who do the latest odds favor in the main categories?
The very best films of the last year will be honoured, recognized and immortalized when the 2023 Academy Awards will emanate from Hollywood’s Dolby Theater and air live on ABC on Sunday March 12.
In recent months in particular, some standout works have graced the screens, making the multiple category winners for this year’s Oscars all the more unpredictable. Everything Everywhere All At Once is expected to do exceptionally well but has credible competition in a number of critically acclaimed films.
In the run-up to the 95th Academy Awards, let’s take a look at who’s currently expected to be the winner in each category according to current DraftKings betting odds.

|Everything everywhere at once||-1100|
|nothing new in the West||+1000|
|The Banshees by Inisherin||+1400|

Favorited everything everywhere at once to win the best picture
As the 2023 Oscars draw closer, Everything Everywhere All At Once has increasingly become a stalemate to win Best Picture, currently sitting at -1100. The beauty of its unprecedented success over the last year is that it has been well received by critics and moviegoers alike and can be enjoyed by all viewers.
The same kinds of movies tend to take home the best movie every year, and Everything Everywhere shatters all of those preconceived notions. There’s no reason to bet against it, although sitting fifth on the odds at +3000 The Fabelmans is somewhat surprising.
All the films before it are credible choices, too, but The Fabelman has already won so many awards that it would be short-sighted not to see it more as a threat to Everything Everywhere.
Best Actor Ratings & Choices
|Brendan Fraser (The Whale)||-165|
|Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin)||+1200|
|Paul Mescal (Aftersun)||+5000|
|Bill Nighty (alive)||+6500|
Brendan Fraser wins Best Actor
Brendan Fraser’s career resurgence in Hollywood has been nothing short of sensational, and while Austin Butler is equally deserving of the Best Actor award for his remarkable performance as Elvis Presley in the title film, the honor wasn’t bestowed on the face of The Mummy franchise, which many would consider be viewed as injustice.
The Whale didn’t win as many Best Picture awards as expected, but Fraser’s role was second to none and a safe bet. Butler is just behind Fraser in the Oscar ratings 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 at Once)||-140|
|Cate Blanchett (Tar)||+100|
|Andrea Riseborough (to Leslie)||+1000|
|Michelle Williams (The Fabelmans)||+2800|
|Ana de Armas (Blonde)||+5000|
Michelle Yeoh won Best Actress
With Everything Everywhere banking so heavily on winning Best Picture, Michelle Yeoh should be expected to be a top pick to win Best Actress. The incredibly accomplished Cate Blanchett has been in this position before and would deserve the award, but a fresh face coming out on top in Yeoh would be the best scenario.
The only extreme longshot worth investing money for is Michelle Williams. The role she played in The Fabelmans cannot be overstated, making her a more likely candidate than the betting odds would suggest.
Ana de Armas also deserves credit for playing Marilyn Monroe, although Blonde herself is rightly panned.
Odds and predictions for the best director
|Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert (Everything everywhere at once)||-1200|
|Steven Spielberg (The Fablemans)||+600|
|Todd Field (Tar)||+2000|
|Martin McDonagh (The Banshees of Inisherin)||+2200|
|Ruben Ostlund (Triangle of Sadness)||+5000|
Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert favored the award for Best Director
Everything Everywhere continues to sweep the 2023 Oscars with Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert dominating the Best Director ratings at -1200. As mentioned, there’s no reason to bet against the beloved film, but Steven Spielberg as the dark horse definitely has cash.
The Fabelmans is of course based on his illustrious life and career and it would only be fitting if he were honored for it. It’s not a slam dunk prediction, but one to consider. Todd Field sits third at +2000 for his excellent work with Tar, but is nowhere near as likely as the films above to emerge victorious in this stacked category.
