Bookies slash odds on Star Wars: The Last Jedi being nominated for Best Picture Oscar

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been receiving rave reviews since last night’s premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and the response from William Hill punters has forced the bookmaker to slash its odds on the latest instalment of the saga being nominated for Best Picture at the 2018 Oscars.

While the movie does not get its public unveiling until this Thursday, William Hill has already seen a flurry of support for the latest Star Wars movie to be in the running for the biggest prize in the movie industry next year.

A “rush of bets” of up to £1,000 have been placed on it being on the list of nominees for Best Picture at the 2018 Oscars, and that has resulted in the firm slashing its odds on The Last Jedi being nominated from 8/1 to just 3/1.

“Since the rave reviews came out, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been backed off the boards to be nominated for Best Picture,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com. “It is unprecedented to see bets of £1,000 on a market like this.”

However, at odds of 66/1 the bookmaker does not believe a nomination will turn into Best Picture glory for the latest Star Wars movie, with Dunkirk the 10/3 favourite ahead of Three Billboards Outside Of Ebbing, Missouri (7/2) and The Post (4/1).

Latest William Hill odds:

3/1 Star Wars: The Last Jedi to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars

66/1 Star Wars: The Last Jedi to win Best Picture at the Oscars

Best Pictures Oscar 2018: 10/3 Dunkirk, 7/2 Three Billboards Outside Of Ebbing, Missouri, 4/1 The Post, 6/1 The Shape Of Water, 13/2 Call Me By Your Name, 7/1 Lady Bird, The Florida Project, 20/1 Get Out, 20/1 Phantom Thread, 25/1 Darkest Hour, 25/1 Detroit, 33/1 Downsizing, 33/1 Last Flag Flying, 40/1 Blade Runner 2049, 40/1 I, Tonya, 40/1 Mudbound, 66/1 Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
