When are the 2019 Oscars?

The Oscars will be televised on February 24 at 8 p.m. EST.


Who's hosting the 2019 Oscars?

The 2019 Oscars won't have a host this year. It marks the first time since 1989 that the award show will be without one. A number of presenters have already been named as a proverbial fill-in, but everyone is really wondering who will win the awards. 


Who are the Best Actor nominees for the 2019 Oscars? 

There may be a little over two weeks to go before the 91st Academy Awards, but FanDuel Sportsbook already has a favorite to take home the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role.


Rami Malek (-210) currently owns the best odds to take home the Oscar for Best Actor for his performance as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rhapsody". Christian Bale (+170) and Bradley Cooper (+950) round out the top three thanks to their performances in "Vice" and "A Star is Born", respectively.

All five actors have put in critically acclaimed performances for their respective films and are more than worthy of the award, but it makes too much sense why Malek is the clear-cut favorite as of now.


The "Mr. Robot" star has pretty much clean swept the awards circuit so far, taking home best actor honors at the Golden Globes, Screen Actor's Guild Awards, and the BAFTA Awards. 

While Malek seems destined to take home the award, the Oscars are not without their surprise and controversial wins. If anyone can pull off the upset, it seems like it would be Christian Bale, who also won Best Actor honors at the Golden Globes in the musical or comedy category.
