“Behind the drama about a woman who lives in a van in the American West, The Trial of The Chicago 7 and Minari, are priced at 6/1 and 14/1 to take the most acclaimed award.”

Carey Mulligan-starring film Promising Young Woman is equal to Minari on its odds at 14/1, while Mank sits at 25/1, Judas and the Black Messiah is at 28/1 and Sound of Metal is 50/1.

The outlier here is The Father, starring Sir Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman, which is currently at 66/1 odds.

Coronavirus has meant the selection of movies for awards has been far smaller than usual, so it is hard to say whether any film could do a major sweep.

Mank has the most nominations with 10 across all the categories, while Judas And The Black Messiah has five and Nomadland has six, with the Best Director gong most certainly going to Chloe Zhao.

Promising Young Woman also has five nominations, with Emerald Fennell a shoo-in for Best Original Screenplay, while The Father’s Florian Zeller will likely pick up Best Adapted Screenplay of their six nominations.

The Oscars take place on Sunday, April 25, or Monday, April 26 at 1am BST
