You're probably aware that the 90th Academy Awards are here -- but you might not know that people actually bet on who'll take home the gold.

See for yourself when the Oscars begin LIVE at 6 p.m. on ABC15!

Yep, Las Vegas has betting odds for each and every category of the Oscars -- and looking at this year's odds, we might already have a pretty good idea of who will take home the Oscar in several major categories.

Here are the betting odds for five of those categories for the 90th Annual Academy Awards:

Best Picture: With odds slightly better than 50/50 (50-to-59, specifically), black-comedy crime film "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" is a slight favorite ahead of "The Shape of Water," which stands at 33-to-20. The biggest longshots are "The Post," "Darkest Hour" and "Phantom Thread," which all stand at 100-to-1.

Best Actor: Gary Oldman is a heavy favorite to win here (1-to-33 odds) for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour." At 50-to-1, Denzel Washington (for his role in "Roman J. Israel, Esq.") is the biggest longshot.

Best Actress: Frances McDormand is the favorite (1-to-20 odds) to win in this category for her role in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri." The next closest is Saorise Ronan, who is a 12-to-1 underdog for her performance in "Lady Bird."

Best Supporting Actor: Sam Rockwell is a substantial favorite (over 1-to-8 odds) to win in this category for his performance in -- you guessed it -- "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri." Willem Dafoe has 5.5-to-1 odds to win it for his role in "The Florida Project." 

Best Supporting Actress: Allison Janney is a heavy favorite (nearly 1-to-6 odds) to win for her portrayal of Tonya Harding's mother in "I, Tonya." Laurie Metcalf has 4-to-1 odds to win it for her performance in "Lady Bird."
