2018 Oscars Odds
Here they are…the 2018 Oscars odds, brought to you by someone who has not watched a movie in theaters this year and won’t until Star Wars comes out. On a related note, The Last Jedi is +300 just to be nominated for Best Picture at BetOnline. You can’t tell me some Sundance Film Festival garbage is better than Star Wars. Maybe it has better cinematic themes or something, but there’s NO WAY you are leaving the theater more entertained after watching The Florida Project than Star Wars. There’s a reason why the former only brought in three million at the box office while The Last Jedi is going to earn more than several small countries’ annual GDPs.
Unless you are an arthouse goon, I assume you haven’t seen most of these movies. Sure, there are some bigger films out there. I actually just watched Get Out a couple of weeks ago…kind of underwhelmed if I’m being honest. Don’t get me wrong, I can enjoy/understand some “artsy” films, but when they forced me to watch Citizen Kane in this film class I took in college, I quite literally fell asleep I was so freakin’ bored.
It would appear as if Dunkirk is expected to be this year’s “it” movie. Not Stephen King’s It, but the movie that will win like 12 different awards and cause viewers to lash out irrationally at the TV each time they’re called up.
I’m no cinephile so I’m not going to analyze the odds for these. Maybe go to the A.V. Club or some other site for actual analysis on the films and actors.
