Viewers will watch Oscars 2016 red carpet live stream online and televised coverage on Sunday evening as all the stars arrive to the Los Angeles venue. Among them will be Academy Award favorites such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson, Alicia Vikander and Sylvester Stallone. These are currently some of the odds on favorites to become winners of the coveted statues at tonight’s ceremony. However, many viewers will first want to watch all the pre-show hype and hoopla surrounding tonight’s awards show, as there is likely to be analysis, interviews and possible “must see moments” on the red carpet. Oscars live streaming online and televised coverage is available through several sources including ABC networks.
According to FiveThirtyEight website in their Feb. 26 report, “The Revenant” is their favorite to win the Best Picture award, followed by “The Big Short” and “Spotlight.” As of right now, odds maker Bovada LV online sports book has “Revenant” priced at -300 odds, meaning a bettor would need to put down $300 to win just $100. “Spotlight” is a +250 underdog, meaning bettors could bet $100 on it, and if it won, they’d win $250, with “The Big Short” at +500. “The Martian,” “Mad Max,” and “Room” are all at +10000 odds to win, with “Bridge of Spies” at +15000 and “Brooklyn” at +20000. Based on many predictions and the odds, it seems the story about frontiersman Hugh Glass as he battles the uncharted wilderness after being left for dead by his hunting team, will win tonight.
By the way, for those who feel Leonardo DiCaprio still won’t win, it may be time to put your money where your mouth is. DiCaprio is a -10000 favorite to win at Bovada, making him a serious favorite. A $10000 bet on DiCaprio wins just $100. Underdogs in the Best Actor category are Michael Fassbender and Eddie Redmayne at +1400, Matt Damon at +2500 and Bryan Cranston at +5000. Brie Larson is also a serious favorite at -5000 to win the Best Actress award tonight, with Saoirise Ronan of “Brooklyn” at +900, Cate Blanchett at +2000, Jennifer Lawrence at +3300, and Charlotte Rampling at +4000. Sorry J-Law, it seems it may be someone else’s time to win the award!
The Supporting Actor seems ready to go to Rocky Balboa, as Sylvester Stallone is a -400 favorite in the category. Mark Rylance of “Bridge of Spies” is +300, with Tom Hardy, Christian Bale and Mark Ruffalo all large underdogs of +1000 or more odds. The Supporting Actress category may be tougher to discern as Alicia Vikander is just a -300 favorite. Kate Winselt is at +325 odds for her work in “Steve Jobs,” with Rooney Mara at +700 and Jennifer Jason Leigh of “Hateful Eight” at +3300. Rachel McAdams who gave a fine performance in “Spotlight” is a large underdog at +7500.
