Academy Awards Betting
Betting on the 2022 Oscars
The Academy Awards are American film awards that have been presented annually since 1929 in Los Angeles.
It is Hollywood's most prestigious artistic award in the film industry. A total of 3,140 Oscar statuettes have been awarded since its inception in 1929. The statuettes are international recognition of excellence in cinematic achievement.
Bet on the Oscars 2022
Shortlists of films vying for nominations in the categories were announced on December 21, 2021, and final nominations were announced on February 8, 2022.
According to the Academy, more members voted for this year's nominations than ever before, with ballots from 82 countries. In a season that has been anything but normal — get ready for some surprises.
The widespread sense of hope around this year's contenders — two years' worth of films in one season — is being steadily eroded. One by one, those films brave enough to risk wide release peeked over the parapet and were quickly shot down.
Serious moviegoers stayed home and waited for streaming, which wouldn't have been a big deal, except that it was their money that made the whole system economically viable.
Recommended betting on the Oscars
Unlike sports betting, betting for Oscar winners will not be based on past performance, and there is no reliable way to know which film or performer will capitalize on the "Oscar buzz" that hits the general public about a month after the show.
Eight of the 23 minor awards will be handed out before the televised start of the ceremony. Make live bets with Bwin.
Bet on the best movie
This award goes to the film producers and is the only category in which every member of the Oscars is eligible to submit a nomination and vote on the final ballot. The Best Picture category is usually the final award of the night and is widely considered the most prestigious award of the ceremony.
For the Best Picture award for 2022, we have two Netflix films, two Apple TV+ projects, one from Amazon and two Warner Bros. titles that debuted on HBO Max among the nominees. This leaves behind Belfast, Licorice Pizza and West Side Story as films that had a purely theatrical release.
