This year, there are nine films up for Best Picture, but the oddsmakers are clearly backing one film, The Artist, as it has 1/12 odds to take home the golden statue. Other short odds to win are The Descendants (10/1) and The Help (12/1).

In Best Actor, Jean Dujardin of The Artist is the favorite to win this award, with 5/7 odds. The only other actor that seems to have a shot in the eyes of the oddsmakers is George Clooney for his role in The Descendants.

Another category with a little competition is in Best Actress where Viola Davis is a 5/8 favorite to win for her role in The Help, but Meryl Streep has short odds of 5/4 to win for her role in The Iron Lady.

In the Best Director category, Michael Hazanavicius is the runaway favorite to win for his work in The Artist, as he has 1/7 odds to win the Oscar. The closest competition in the category according to oddsmakers is Martin Scorsese for his work in Hugo. Scorsese has 5/1 odds to win.
