Britain's Golden Globes battering 'could be repeated at the Oscars'

As the British film community comes to terms with the Golden Globes battering, it seems that another awards ceremony might also follow suit.

Oscars betting suggests that Blighty will get a similarly difficult time when the award show takes place on March 4.

Only actors Gary Oldman, Ewan McGregor and Martin McDonagh collected Golden Globes for Britain.

Oldman won the Best Actor award and for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, and bookmakers now make him the heavy favourite to repeat the success and win the Oscar in the same category.

Scottish star McGregor won the best actor in a limited series for TV for his role as twins Emmit and Ray Stussy in Fargo, while McDonagh scooped Best Screenplay of a Motion Picture for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Dunkirk suffered a very disappointing night losing out on the Best Picture award and also Christopher Nolan not getting Best Director despite having been overwhelming favourite.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “Gary Oldman has never won an Oscar, with only one nomination to date, but our odds now show that it would be a major shock if he didn’t take the award in March for his brilliant portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.”

Bookies now make Dunkirk an outsider to win the Oscar, with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri the favourite and Lady Bird second favourite.

Sally Hawkins, well fancied for Best Actress, was beaten by Frances McDormand in Sunday night’s ceremony, with the American actress now the hot favourite to win the Oscar.

Hawkins is around 3/1 to reverse that and win the award in March.

“The Golden Globes often provide a good indication of who will go on to win the Oscars and unfortunately our odds now suggest that it could be a barren ceremony for British film in Hollywood this March,” added Aitkenhead.
