1917 now has the best odds to win the Oscar for best picture, according to nearly every betting site. But Parasite and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood are not out of the race just yet. Parasite—the first South Korean film ever nominated for best picture—is believed to have the best chance of upsetting 1917 at the Oscars, similar to how Moonlight unexpectedly beat La La Land for the big award in 2016 after the latter won the PGA that year.

Inspired by a story told by Mendes’ grandfather, a World War I veteran, 1917 follows two British soldiers as they cross no-man’s-land and trek through enemy territory in order to hand-deliver a message to another battalion. Lauded for its technical prowess, the film was made to look as though it is one continuous shot. It was nominated for 10 Oscars in total, including best cinematography for the work of Roger Deakins, who won the same award two years ago for Blade Runner 2049.

Boosting the film’s Oscars case is its strong box office returns: It earned $37 million in ticket sales in its first weekend in wide release last week, sending Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to second place.
