Emma Stone is the -800 favorite to win Best Actress at this year’s Oscars ceremony. She is nominated for La La Land.
In most sports a price of -800 would typically be considered a “lock” and that is often the case with the Oscars as well. An $80 bet would pay out $10 while a $160 bet would pay out $20. You would get your initial bet back as long as Emma Stone wins for Best Actress. While $20 isn’t a huge profit with a $160 risk, it’s close to guaranteed money.
Other odds to win for Best Actress appear below.
Natalie Portman – Jackie 5-1
Isabelle Huppert – Elle 20-1
Meryl Streep - Florence Foster Jenkins 50-1
Ruth Negga – Loving 50-1
