The 92nd Academy Awards are upon us. This Sunday, Hollywood's biggest stars will converge on the Dolby Theatre in L.A. to celebrate another year of film.

While the movie stars hit the red carpet, you can line your pockets in the BetUS Sportsbook. Keep reading for a brief description on some of the favorites to win Best Picture at this year's Oscars.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood +700

Directed by Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Holloywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. The film is set in 1969 Los Angeles where Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), a former western TV star and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) struggle to make it in a Hollywood they don't recognize anymore.

Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and Roman Polanski (Rafal Zawierucha) move in next door to Dalton. It's here where the main character's worlds collide with Charles Manson's.

In true Tarantino fashion, the film is filled with twists, turns, and artistic liberties of real life events.

1917 +100

1917 is directed by Sam Mendes and stars Dean-Charles Chapman, George MacKay, and Daniel Mays. The film is based on World War I.

Two British soldiers are on a mission to deliver an urgent mission in order to save the regiment from walking into a trap. The mission is a dangerous one as they're forced to navigate enemy territory.

Parasite +275

This film, directed by Bong Joon Ho is nominated for six Oscars. The movie stars Kang-ho Song, Sun-kyun Lee, and Yeo-jeong Jo.

The Kim family is a very poor family living in poor conditions in the commercial district of Seoul. Ki-taek and his family become intrigued by the wealthy and extravagent Parks. The Kims engage in a scam against the Parks in order to improve their lives.

Joker +1000

Joker is the latest film from director Todd Phillips. Joaquin Phoenix stars as the Joker.

The film shows how Arthur Fleck, a man with severe mental health ailments, suffers physical and emotional abuse from the world around him. We see how Fleck embarks on a downward spiral and transforms into a killer and sociopath.

The Irishman +6000

The Irishman has received a lot of buzz since making its debut on Netflix. Martin Scorsese directed this mobster film. The movie boasts a star-studded cast that includes Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, and Ray Romano.

The movie centers around Frank Sheeran (De Niro), a former labor union high official and hitman and his role in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, the famed former president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Hoffa disappeared in July 1975 and has never been found.
