Aussie Margot Robbie a $17 Chance to Win an Academy Award

Aussie Margot Robbie a $17 Chance to Win an Academy Award


AUSTRALIAN actress Margot Robbie is a $17 longshot with TAB to claim the Academy Award for Best Actress at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles tomorrow afternoon.

Frances McDormand, who was crowned the Best Actress at the 1997 Academy Awards for her role in Fargo, is almost unbackable at $1.04 for her work in Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.

“Even though McDormand appears certain to capture her second Academy Award, 60 percent of the support – mostly patriotic – is for Robbie to win following her portrayal of figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya,” TAB’s Trent Langskaill said.

Gary Oldman is $1.03 to win the Academy Award for Best Actor recognising his performance as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, while Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri is the $1.70 favourite with TAB to win Best Picture over The Shape of Water ($2.15).
