LOS ANGELES – The Academy Awards are just under three months away and there are already different odds for some of the different awards being presented. The award ceremony is set to take place on March 27 at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

Academy Awards – Best Original Song Odds

  • Billie Eilish (No Time To Die) -125
  • Beyonce (King Richard) +250
  • Lin-Manuel Miranda (Encanto) +550
  • Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi (Don’t Look Up) +1200
  • Kid Cudi, JAY-Z (The Harder They Fall) +1400
  • Brian Wilson (Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road) +2000

Eilish’s song made its debut in the latest James Bond movie in which it gained loads of attention. The song’s release, it has been thriving as it opened up in the United States as number 16 on Billboard’s Hot 100 list.

The song also won one of the most prestigious awards already in a Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 2021 Grammy’s.

Something else that separates this song from the rest on the Academy Awards odds board is that it is not just popular in the United States, but has been making noise across the world. It debuted as the number one single in the United Kingdom and reached the number one spot in seven additional countries. With that, this is one of the obvious choices to lay money on to win the award.

Can Beyonce Nab The Award?

Beyonce is following close behind Billie Eilish on the odds board for her song “Be Alive” which was on the King Richard soundtrack. While betting on Beyonce to win an award for her music is never a bad idea, this track is not gaining as much attention as No Time To Die.

It was nominated but did not win the award for Best Original Song in a Feature Film at the Hollywood Music Media Awards. As for the charts, it only gained attention in two countries outside of the U.S. in New Zealand and South Africa. Her song never reached inside of the top-30 on the charts in any country.
