The 2018 Oscars ceremony was held on the 4th March 2018, later than usual due to a clash with the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
The awards were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and it was the second year in succession the comedian hosted the Academy Awards. He became the first person since Billy Crystal in 1997 and 1998 to host two Academy Awards back-to-back.
There was a great array of films which won leading awards, including The Shape of Water, which won four awards, including Best Picture and Best Director for Guillermo del Toro. Dunkirk won three awards, while Blade Runner 2049, Coco, Darkest Hour, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won two awards each.

Other 2019 Oscars betting predictions for Best Picture include Back Seat, If Beal Street Could Talk, Widows and Mortal Engines.
2. Best Actor
The 2018 award for Best Actor deservedly went to Gary Oldman for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the film Darkest Hour.
The 2019 Oscars betting tips are already starting for Best Actor and Christian Bale is considered a leading contender by many for his role in Back Seat. The film is about the former United States vice-president Dick Cheney and how his policies had a huge impact on the world. Bale plays the leading role as Cheney and it will be interesting to see the 2019 Oscars odds once this film is released and the bookies begin pricing them up.
Other contenders for the Best Actor award at the 91st Academy Awards include Ryan Gosling, Lucas Hedges, Steve Carell and Colin Firth. Of course, online bookmakers will present their Oscars 2019 betting offer for that sooner than later.
3. Best Actress
Frances McDormand won the Oscar for Best Actress at the 90th Academy Awards for her performance as Mildred Hayes in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
Betting predictions for Oscars 2019 suggest Saoirse Ronan, who plays Mary Stuart in the film Mary Queen of Scots, will walk away with the Oscar at the 91st Academy Awards. Mary Queen of Scots follows Mary Stuart's attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England and the consequences of years of imprisonment and execution.
Ronan has previously been nominated three times for this award, without success and is expected to come up against stiff opposition once more with Viola Davis, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone and Glenn Close all expected to be nominated for Best Actress at the 2019 Oscars.
