Betfair Spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “It’s been a record-breaking year for Ireland at the Oscars with a whopping 14 nominations. The Banshees of Inisherin could clean up in Hollywood, with nine nominations. The film’s best chance of bringing home an Oscar comes in the Best Original Screenplay category, with the Martin McDonagh film the odds-on favourite to win at 10/11, while McDonagh is 10/1 to win Best Director.

“There’s also a good chance of it winning the top award for Best Picture with the film currently second-favourite at 2/1 behind Everything Everywhere All At Once at 4/9.

“While all the Irish actors nominated are first-time Oscar nominees, that doesn’t rule them out of the running in the betting markets. Colin Farrell is 5/2 to win Leading Actor for his role in The Banshees of Inisherin, with Paul Mescal 33/1 to take home the Oscar in that category for his role in Aftersun.

“Kerry Condon also has a good chance at 6/4 of picking up an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Banshees of Inisherin. Meanwhile, her co-actors Brendan Gleeson and Barry Keoghan go head-to-head in the Best Supporting Actor category. Gleeson is 11/2 second-favourite, with Keoghan 10/1 to win.

“It’s not only McDonagh’s film that can make Ireland proud in Hollywood, Irish box office hit An Cailín Ciúin (The Quiet Girl) is 10/1 to win Best International Feature Film, Jonathan Redmond is 9/1 to win Best Film Editing for his work on Elvis and An Irish Goodbye is odds-on at 4/5 to win Best Live-Action Short.”
