Over two decades later could we get a repeat?

According to Casinos.com the likelihood of Paul winning an Oscar for the role are 7/2. Not bad at all!

A spokesperson for the brand said: “Sequels don’t always perform well at the Oscars, and only two have won the Best Picture accolade – 1974 movie The Godfather Part II and 2003’s Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

“It is just 3/1 that Gladiator 2 is left empty-handed at next year’s Oscars, while it could be an even tougher task for Mescal to land his first-ever Academy Award.

“The Kildare man is 7/2 to win the Best Actor accolade, as, just like Maximums, he could come up against stiff competition.

“The likes of Joker: Folie à Deux’s Joaquin Phoenix, Sing Sing’s Colman Domingo, and Daniel Craig for forthcoming film Queer, could all be in contention in 2025.”

Hm, what do you think?
