Daniel Day Lewis Hot Favourite For Victory On Home Soil!
Big things have been predicted for Lincoln this awards season but the film only scooped one award at the Golden Globes - the highly anticipated best actor gong for Daniel Day Lewis. The two times Oscar winner is 1/10 for the BAFTA.
"All of the Awards buzz this year has been about Daniel Day Lewis and ahead of both the BAFTAs and the Oscars, he looks like the only certainty," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
After she scooped the Globe for Skyfall, Adele is 1/6 to bag the BAFTA for the same song. Had you backed the British songstress before the Globes to win all three awards (Golden Globe, Oscar, BAFTA) you could have had 3/1.
It looks like a three horse race in the BAFTA for the Best Film, with Lincoln Even money favourite, Les Miserables 5/2 and Argo 3/1 ahead of Zero Dark Thirty at 10/1 and Life Of Pi 20/1.
