Best Supporting Actor Oscars Odds
LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – Which actor will take home the honors for Best Supporting Actor in two months at The Oscars? Let’s check out the odds.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Boada.lv, Jared Leto is the current favorite at 1/4 odds to win Best Supporting Actor for his work in “Dallas Buyers Club.” Michael Fassbender of “12 Years a Slave” has the next-best odds at 4/1 while Barkhad Abdi of “Captain Phillips” is 16/1, as well is Jonah Hill for “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Bradley Cooper, meanwhile, has the worst odds at 25/1 for his role in “American Hustle.”
This is the first time that Leto has been nominated for an Academy Award, although he did win a Golden Globe this year for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in “Dallas Buyers Club.” The same can be said for Fassbender, who has been nominated for his first Oscar, although he was nominated for a Golden Glob for “12 Years a Slave.”
This will be Abdi’s first nomination for an Academy Award because “Captain Phillips” was his first role, period, of his acting career. Hill, meanwhile, was nominated for an Oscar in 2012 for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in “Moneyball” and was also nominated for the same category in the same movie at the Golden Globes.
Finally, Cooper was nominated for an Oscar in 2013 for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for “Silver Linings Playbook.” He was also nominated for his role in Silver Linings Playbook at the 2013 Golden Globes.
