honours for suspense


Senior Member
Friends,here is a piece of today's media news:

With Danny Boyle and his film (Slumdog Millionaire) heavily fovoured to win best director and picture, Oscar watchers are looking to the acting honours for suspense at the ceremony.

Please say what is the meaning of the portion highlighed in red in the sentence?

Thanks a lot

    Since everyone assumes Slum Dog Millionaire will win Best Picture, there is no suspense for that award. For suspense, viewers will have to rely on the awards for acting (Best Actor, etc).

    Thank you very much.It is so simple.Sometimes words look cunning to me:)
