B.C. bettors can join in the fun of one of Hollywood’s biggest nights by wagering at PlayNow.com on 18 other categories, including Best Actress Drama, Best Actor Drama and Best Director.

Currently on PlayNow.com, the Best Actor Drama nod has Hollywood leading man Bradley Cooper as the favourite to take home the win for his role as a seasoned musician in A Star is Born.

The movie has five nominations at the Globes, including Best Picture Drama.

PlayNow.com’s oddsmakers have installed Cooper as the 7/5 favourite to win the award – which means, for every $5 you stake, you would win $7 - followed closely by Remi Malek, for his portrayal of Queen’s lead singer, Freddy Mercury, in Bohemian Rhapsody. Malek has odds of 9/5 to win.

Best Actress Drama nominees include Lady Gaga, Nicole Kidman, Glenn Close, Rosamund Pike and Melissa McCarthy.

For her role in A Star is Born, Lady Gaga is the hot favourite to accept the award at 4/6 – you’d have to stake $6 to win $4. Glenn Close has the second best chance, with 3/1 for her role in The Wife.

There are a couple of Canadians of note to wager on.

Jim Carrey is up for Best Actor Comedy/Musical with odds currently sitting at 9/2.

Sandra Oh, who happens to be co-hosting the event, is nominated for Best Lead Actress - TV Drama for her role in Killing Eve. At skinny odds of 1/2, she is the leading contender in that category.

The 76th Golden Globe Awards take place in Los Angeles on Jan. 6.

Betting on the results of the event ends at the start of the show, 5 p.m. Pacific time.
