The beginning of 2023 is no different with the website offering betting markets for the 80th Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday, January 10 at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. Hosted by comedian and actor Jerrod Carmichael, the award show will honor the best in film and American television in 2022, as chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Per one outlet, the Banshees of Inisherin received a leading eight nominations, including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Director. This was the most nominations achieved for any one film since 2004.
In this article, SBS will be going over the latest news coming from MyBookie along with more thoughts and notes about using the website.
Per MyBookie, Colin Farrell in The Banshees of Inisherin is the presumptive favorite at -700 for the Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. In terms of some other popular actors in this category, Daniel Craig in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is the next favorite at +500, while Diego Calva in Babylon (+1200) rounds out the top three. Farrell first won a Golden Globe Award back in 2008 when he was the leading man for In Bruges. In fact, he also teamed with director Martin McDonagh back then, as he did for Banshees this past year.
Speaking of McDonagh, per MyBookie’s website, he is also included in the category for the honor of Best Director – Motion Picture for his work on Banshees (+900). However, the leading favorite in this group is legendary director Steven Spielberg at -200 for this work on The Fabelmans. Rounding up, the top three in this group are Daniel Sheinert/Daniel Kwan for Everything Everywhere All at Once (+350) and James Cameron for Avatar: The Way of Water (+400). The favorite in this category, Spielberg, has won multiple accolades over this storied career and this could be another solid addition to the trophy case.
One of the leading stars in Hollywood, Cate Blanchett, turned in a stellar performance as Lydia Tár in the picture by the same name. For her hard work, Blanchett is now the favorite to win the Golden Globe honor of Best Actress – Drama at -225. Rounding out, the top three of this group from MyBookie are Michelle Williams in The Fabelmans (+300) and Viola Davis in The Woman King (+900). Recognized by multiple outlets, from Vanity Fair to IndieWire as the “Best Picture of the Year,” Tár has certainly a ton of positive accolades that could spur Blanchett to yet another Golden Globe honor.
The final category spotlight, Best Animated Feature Film, is sure to be an exciting one with two big films going head to head. The top pick here is Guillermo del Toros’ Pinocchio, a strong favorite at -400. After that, Turning Red (+550) is in second place followed by Marcell the Shell with Shoes On at +1200. Indeed with multiple films that could make a run here, this is an exciting category for fans of the genre to bet on.
