Yesterday, we covered the 77th Golden Globe nomination odds. While those nominations are already available, the 92nd Academy Award nominations won’t even be announced until January 13.
Better known as the Oscars, the Academy Awards highlight the years’ excellence in cinematic arts. The 2020 ceremony will be held on February 9 from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California and will be televised by ABC.
In total, there are 24 Academy Award categories ranging from Best Picture to Best Makeup to Best Production Design. In preparation for the upcoming nomination announcements, Bovada is accepting action on the entertainment betting odds of a few Oscar categories.
