Hollywood’s biggest night is here! The 93rd Academy Awards are here, and we’ll be following along all night with the winners as they come through.

We’ll be keeping an eye on the odds as well, because that’s become a big part of following the Oscars in recent years. You can also wager on these yourself at DraftKings Sportsbook if you live in Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, or New Jersey.

Nomadland is the big favorite to win Best Picture as well as Best Director, but there are some upset possibilities out there with The Trial of the Chicago 7, Minari, and Mank as well.

We’ll be following along all night from the ceremony, taking place at LA’s Union Station instead of the usual home of the Dolby Theatre due to COVID-19 precautions.

Below are all the odds and for all categories from DraftKings Sportsbook, as well as all the winners as they’re announced.

Best Actor

Winner: Anthony Hopkins

I mean, I just... what??? If you’re not going to honor the deceased Boseman, you’re going with Anthony Hopkins instead of Riz Ahmed?? Seriously, SAG?? The producers of the show were clearly trying to set up Boseman’s family accepting the win to close the show, and he was the last person show in the In Memoriam montage. Just an absolute stunner, and Twitter is dragging the last two awards pretty badly.

Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom): -1250
Anthony Hopkins (The Father): +550
Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal): +1400
Steven Yeun (Minari): +2500
Gary Oldman (Mank): +3300

Best Actress

Winner: Frances McDormand

A big disappointment for Carey Mulligan, who had a great shot here. It’s McDormand’s third win, but this one was a bit of a surprise.

Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman): +130
Viola Davis (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom): +175
Frances McDormand (Nomadland): +325
Andra Day (The United States vs. Billie Holiday): +600
Vanessa Kirby (Pieces of a Woman): +2500

Best Picture

Winner: Nomadland

The chalk comes through at the end. It’s certainly an achievement of cinema, and it’s a special film. A huge congratulations to Chloe Zhao, Frances McDormand, and the cast both scripted and non-scripted.

Nomadland: -590
The Trial of the Chicago 7: +600
Minari: +1400
Promising Young Woman: +2000
Mank: +3300
Judas & the Black Messiah: +3300
Sound of Metal: +5000
The Father: +8000

Best Original Song

Winner: Fight For You

So while the song might not actually be in the movie, one of the biggest Oscar upsets in a long time! +2500 comes through for the performer H.E.R. as well as Judas and the Black Messiah.

Speak Now (One Night in Miami): -134
Husavik (Eurovision): +200)
Io Si (The Life Ahead): +250
Hear My Voice (The Trial of...): +1000
Fight for You (Judas and the Black Messiah): +2500

Best Original Score

Winner: Soul

Nine Inch Nails and Stephen Colbert’s house band leader both win an Oscar! Never a doubt here, and the music in this film is just wonderful.

Soul: -1667
Mank: +800
Minari: +1700
Da 5 Bloods: +2500
News of the World: +2500

Best Film Editing

Winner: Sound of Metal

This was basically a 50/50, and might be bad for The Trial of the Chicago 7 potentially getting enough momentum to knock off Nomadland to close the show. The way it was cut however made all the difference, and either film would have been a worthy winner.

Sound of Metal: -118
The Trial of the Chicago 7: -110
Nomadland: +650
The Father: +2000
Promising Young Woman: +4000

Best Cinematography

Winner: Mank

NOMADLAND IS CUT AND BLEEDING! Both the favorite and the winner are incredibly well shot, but of all the awards that were questionable, we thought the incredibly well-lit filming of western American vistas were going to bring it home. Another upset!

Nomadland: -335
Mank: +275
News of the World: +2000
Judas & the Black Messiah: +2500
The Trial of the Chicago 7: +2500

Best Production Design

Winner: Mank

Black and white and David Fincher means you’re going to get an incredible looking film. Mank is Oscar bait about Hollywood, which tends to win more Oscars, and then in a few decades someone will make a movie about the making of Fight Club and the process of Fincher... it’s the circle of awards cinema.

Mank: -560
Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: +650
Tenet: +800
News of the World: +2000
The Father: +2000

Best Supporting Actress

Winner: Yuh-jung Youn

A South Korean star for decades, Youn wins for her turn as the irreverent grandmother of a family that moves to Arkansas to begin farming. She was terrific, and it’s a shame Maria Bakalova can’t get some kind of special award for being trapped in a hotel room with Rudy Giuliani at moderate peril for the comedy moment of the year.

Yuh-jung Youn (Minari): -835
Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm): +450
Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy): +1000
Olivia Colman (The Father): +2000
Amanda Seyfried (Mank): +3300

Best Visual Effects

Winner: Tenet

Christopher Nolan films get special effects awards! It’s a time traveling trip, so it’s not a surprise this one is a winner.

Tenet: -560
The Midnight Sky: +275
Mulan: +1700
Love and Monsters: +2500
The One and Only Ivan: +2500

Best Documentary Feature

Winner: My Octopus Teacher

Craig Foster spent a year building a relationship with an octopus in a South African kelp forest. You do that, while making it engaging and one of the most talked about documentaries of the year, you get the trophy. Netflix gets the W!

My Octopus Teacher: -500
Time +400
Collective: +800
Crip Camp: +2000
The Mole Agent: +5000

Best Documentary Short Subject

Winner: Colette

Our first upset! Colette is the first film produced by a video-game studio to receive an Oscar nomination, from Respawn Entertainment. It shows former French Resistance fighter Colette Marin-Catherine as she travels to Germany and visits the concentration camp where her brother was killed.

A Love Song for Latasha: -177
A Concerto is a Conversation: +175
Do Not Split: +350
Colette: +800
Hunger Ward: +1400

Best Animated Film

Winner: Soul

It’s so freaking good. Just go see it because it’s wonderful and the soundtrack straight up slaps. The Rockets would win the NBA Championship this year before Soul didn’t win this award. It’s going to be so cool to see Trent Reznor win an award for Best Original Score for this same film later tonight too.

Soul: -5000
Wolfwalkers: +700
Onward: +2500
Over The Moon: +2800
A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon: +4000

Best Animated Short

Winner: If Anything Happens I Love You

Hey @oscars: Def need that website streaming password so I can act like I know what I’m talking about here. I’ve got some DK promo codes to trade you!

If Anything Happens I Love You: -335
Opera: +450
Burrow: +650
Genius Loci: +1000
Yes-People: +2500

Best Live Action Short

Winner: Two Distant Strangers

Not gonna lie: I saw none of these films. Someone hook me up with a password to that Academy site where we can stream all the nominees! But congrats to the Utah Jazz’s Mike Conley on his first Oscar!

The Letter Room: -118
Two Distant Strangers: -118
Feeling Through: +650
The Present: +1400
White Eye: +3300

Best Sound

Winner: Sound of Metal

Riz Ahmed giving out the award should have been the first clue. Could you go any other way here than a film about a heavy metal drummer losing his ability to hear?

Sound of Metal: -2500
Mank: +1000
Soul: +1000
Greyhound: +2000
News of the World: +3300

Best Director

Winner: Chloe Zhao (Nomadland)

Whether it wins Best Picture might still be in question, but the shooting and production of what is a breakthrough achievement in cinema left little doubt who the winner would be here. It was one of the most beautifully shot films of the year, and the blending of real-life wanderers with scripted actors was so well-executed.

Chloe Zhao (Nomadland): -3335
David Fincher (Mank): +1000
Lee Isaac Chung (Minari): +1700
Emerald Fenell (Promising Young Woman): +2000
Thomas Vinterberg (Another Round): +2500

Best Costume Design

Winner: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

Getting the look of the characters was a massive part of the film, and finding the perfect outfits for a 1920’s blues group is part of what made this film look so realistic.

Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: -500
Emma: +350
Mank: +1000
Pinocchio: +2500
Mulan: +3300

Best Makeup & Hairstyling

Winner: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

The film was so based in the wonderful look of all the actors, and this was an easy call.

Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: -670
Pinocchio: +550
Hillbilly Elegy: +1200
Mank: +2000
Emma: +2500

Best Supporting Actor

Winner: Daniel Kaluuya

An absolute achievement in performance, Kaluuya’s inhabitation of Black Panther Fred Hampton was eye-popping. “How blessed we are to have lived in a lifetime when he did,” said Kaluuya during his acceptance speech. A tremendous speech.

Daniel Kaluuya (Judas And The Black Messiah): -2500
Sacha Baron Cohen (The Trial Of The Chicago 7): +1200
Paul Raci (Sound of Metal): +1200
Leslie Odom Jr. (One Night in Miami): +1700
LaKeith Stanfield (Judas And The Black Messiah): +3300

Best International Feature Film

Winner: Another Round

The fact director Thomas Vinterberg is also nominated for Best Director indicates the strength of this film, as it’s rare to see a foreign production in both categories. The Danish film was a massive favorite.

Another Round: -1250
Aida? Quo Vadis: +650
Collective: +1200
Better Days: +2500
The Man Who Sold His Skin: +2500

Best Adapted Screenplay

Winner: The Father

A bit of an upset here, and this might be a sign of trouble for Nomadland? The Anthony Hopkins vehicle was a great film, but is it possible the Academy might not be ready to hand Chloe Zhao all the statuettes tonight?

Nomadland: -182
The Father: +130
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: +1400
One Night in Miami: +2000
The White Tiger: +4000

Best Original Screenplay

Winner: Promising Young Woman

No surprise here, as Emerald Fennell was considered a huge favorite because of outstanding script. The fact she shot the film while seven months pregnant as the director is almost as incredible.

Promising Young Woman: -455
The Trial of the Chicago 7: +275
Minari: +1400
Judas & the Black Messiah: +3300
Sound of Metal: +3300
