Oppenheimer expecting dominant night with the movie favourite in several categories

With the BAFTAs on the way this weekend, OLBG are looking at some of the biggest categories on the night with Oppenheimer due to have a dominant evening at the event.

Bookmakers have made Oppenheimer the heavy favourite at 1/10 to win the Best Film award, with Director Christopher Nolan also leading the way clearly in the Best Director category at 1/8.

Leading Actor Cillian Murphy is 1/6 in that category for playing the title star J. Robert Oppenheimer with William Hill offering a full market for the Leading Actor BAFTA.

The latest betting odds say there's an 85% chance that Murphy wins the Leading Actor BAFTA with his odds putting him ahead of Paul Giamatti in the market.
