Barbie Leads Total Nominations With 18

The 2024 awards season is officially underway as betting on the Golden Globes has concluded, and we’re already eyeballing the Primetime Emmy Awards on January 15th.

Two days before the Emmys, the 29th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards will broadcast from the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport, honoring the best in film and television between January and December 2023.

Comedian Chelsea Handler will be hosting the event for the second year in a row which will air on the CW Plus this Sunday at 7 p.m.

Entertainment sportsbooks have posted Critics’ Choice Awards odds for some categories, but not all. The betting focus is entirely on television awards, but that could change in the days leading up to the ceremony.

While Barbie has racked up a record 18 nominations this year, the following entertainment prop bets feature FX’s The Bear and HBO’s Succession in the lead.

Best Comedy Actor

Jeremy Allen White The Bear (FX) -450
D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai Reservation Dogs (FX) +550
Steve Martin Only Murders in the Building (Hulu) +575
Bill Hader Barry (HBO) +650
Kayvan Novak What We Do in the Shadows (FX) +850
Drew Tarver The Other Two (Max) +2000

The Bear’s Jeremy Allen White holds a 700-point lead on the next highest-ranked nominee in the odds to win the Best Comedy Actor Critics’ Choice Award. Wagers of $7 will be required to win a dollar by betting on him to win.

Best Comedy Actress

Ayo Edebiri The Bear (FX) -200
Natasha Lyonne Poker Face (Peacock) +350
Quinta Brunson Abbott Elementary (ABC) +500
Rachel Brosnahan Marvelous Mrs Maisel (Prime Video) +600
Devery Jacobs Reservation Dogs (FX) +800
Bridget Everett Somebody Somewhere (HBO) +1000

Entertainment betting sites are also suggesting that The Bear will win the Best Comedy Actress Award, as Ayo Edebiri is 350 points ahead of Poker Face’s Natasha Lyonne.

Best Comedy Series

The Bear (FX) -350
Abbott Elementary (ABC) +250
Barry (HBO) +425
What We Do in the Shadows (FX) +650
Shrinking (Apple TV+) +750

The odds for Best Drama Actor suggest that the winner will be between one of two actors featured in Succession. Kieran Culkin is in the lead currently, but a win by Jeremy Strong would not be considered much of an upset.

Best Drama Actor

Kieran Culkin Succession (HBO) -110
Jeremy Strong Succession (HBO) +200
Pedro Pascal The Last of Us (HBO) +400
Timothy Olyphant Justified: City Primeval (FX) +700
Tom Hiddleston Loki (Disney+) +800
Ramón Rodríguez Will Trent (ABC) +800

Succession appears poised to bag another Critics’ Choice Award, this time for Best Drama Actress. You’ll need to bet $3 on Snook to net a dollar on her winning the award.

Best Drama Actress

Sarah Snook Succession (HBO) -300
Jennifer Aniston The Morning Show (Apple TV+) +575
Bella Ramsey The Last of Us (HBO) +650
Keri Russell The Diplomat (Netflix) +650
Reese Witherspoon The Morning Show (Apple TV+) +650
Aunjanue Ellis Justified: City Primeval (FX) +850

The most sizable lead on the boards is Succession, with a -400 moneyline that places them 1000 points ahead of The Crown.

Best Drama Series

Succession (HBO/Max) -400
The Crown (Netflix) +700
The Diplomat (Netflix) +800
The Last of Us (HBO) +1200
Loki (Disney+) +1200
The Morning Show (Apple TV+) +1200
Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty (HBO) +1200
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Paramount+) +1600

Odds for betting on the Critics’ Choice Awards will remain active until each winner is announced. That means players can gamble on award winners throughout the evening and don’t have to submit bets prior to the beginning of the show.
