Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is the early “best film” Oscar favourite as the bookmakers put Quentin Tarantino’s film ahead of Scorsese’s The Irishman.
Quentin Tarantino’s new film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has emerged as the new favourite to win Best Film at the 2020 Academy Awards.
The film is listed at 3/1 ahead of Martin Scorsese’s yet-to-be-released The Irishman at 5/1.
With the likes of Cats, another film yet-to-be-released, the odds might change ahead of the ceremony next year but right now Quentin Tarantino is predicted to win his first Best Film Academy Award having previously won Best Original Screenplay for Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained.
In contention for the top prize at the Oscars include The Last Thing He Wanted (a political thriller starring Ben Affleck and Anne Hathaway) and Tom Hanks’s A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood based on Tom Junod’s article Can You Say… Hero? which appeared in Esquire magazine.
Jojo Rabbit, Avengers: Endgame, Rocketman, The Lion King and 1917 are also in the running for Best Film according to the bookmakers.
