Following these are Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, sitting at 8/1, while Joker is at 12/1, having not won an award in the film category yet.
In the leading actor categories, Renee Zellweger is the most likely woman to take home the Best Actress award, having swept most awards ceremonies so far.

She won the Golden Globe, BAFTA and Screen Actors’ Guild award for her portrayal of Judy Garland, in the movie Judy, and has 1/20 odds to complete her collection.

He is 1/50 to take home the award, having followed Renee Zellweger in doing a clean sweep of the ceremonies.
Meanwhile, in the Best Director category, the men are reigning supreme with no women among the nominees.

Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese are coming up at the rear with 16/1 and 50/1 odds respectively.
