Saoirse Ronan Shortens For Oscar After Golden Globe Success

As attentions turn now to the Oscars, it looks like it could be the year of Saoirse Ronan, who scooped her first Golden Globe for best actress in a Musical or Comedy on Sunday.

The Lady Bird actress’ odds have been cut in half, to 3/1 second favourite from 6/1, to walk away with the Oscar for Best Actress.

The only competition ahead of her in the betting is 4/6 favourite Frances McDormand, who won the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama motion picture for Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri.

Another first timer was Gary Oldman, who received his first ever Golden Globe nomination this year for Best Actor in a drama for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, which he went on to win.

Oldman is now hotly tipped at 1/4 to continue his award success at the Oscars.

Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri leads the charge for Best Picture at 5/4 with Lady Bird the 2/1 second favourite and The Shape Of Water next at 7/1.
