Oscars 2016: The Revenant and DiCaprio hot favourites for top awards

Leonardo DiCaprio will finally take home the best actor Oscar on 28 February, according to Las Vegas bookmaker Ben Eckstein. Eckstein, who has a nationally syndicated odds column and publishes betting odds on his website AmericasLine.com, has DiCaprio at 1/50 for his role as a fur trapper bent on revenge in The Revenant. The best picture race, though, is tighter, with Alejandro Inarritus dark drama competing against Tom McCarthys journalism tale Spotlight, with financial farce The Big Short in third place.
