The odds to win Best Supporting Actress at the 2021 Oscars can be found below.


Rot Academy Awards - Best Supporting Actress Winner Moneyline
1000 Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)     +300
1001 Youn Yuh-jung (Minari)     -450
1002 Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy)     +900
1003 Olivia Colman (The Father)     +1800
1004 Amanda Seyfried (Mank)     +2500

Youn Yuh-jung (Minari) is now a decent size favorite with very good value for the Oscars.  A $45 bet pays $10 with that $45 refunded.  Yuh-jung is pretty much a "lock" to win so don't be discouraged by the relatively high risk.

Yuh-jung's career in film and television spans over five decades, primarily in South Korea.

But it is Minari that has exposed her to an American audience and likely Oscar fame.

The film is about a Korean American family moving to an Arkansas farm in search of its own American dream, though we would note Minari was shot mostly in Oklahoma. Amidst the challenges of this new life in the strange and rugged Ozarks, they discover the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.]

The veteran South Korean film star thought she may have made a mistake.

"It was so hot and humid. I was wondering how I'm going to survive with this weather," she recalls of the summer shoot in Oklahoma. "I though I made a wrong decision. I wish I could go back on the plane and go back to Korea."


From Wikipedia:

In 2021, she starred in the American film Minari, where she received critical recognition from over forty American regional critics awards, including a win for the National Board of Review and Los Angeles Film Critics Association.  She won the Screen Actors Guild Award and BAFTA Award becoming the oldest winner for the category and the first performance in Korean language to win the award. She earned additional nominations from the Critics Choice Awards and the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, becoming the first Korean actress to achieve this recognition.

Many books are reporting Youn Yuh-jung now as their biggest Oscar liability.

We do not typically recommend taking the choice with the next shortest odds when a category features a favorite greater than -300.  In this case Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm) would pay out $30 for every $10 bet.
