Jimmy Fallon prepares the puppies for their Oscar picks.

Will "Zero Dark Thirty" nab top honors on Sunday night? Does "Lincoln" have the edge? Maybe "Argo" is the clear Oscar contender. Of course with "Django Unchained," Les Miserables," "Life of Pi," and "Silver Linings Playbook" all in the mix for best picture, as well as "Amour" and indie breakout "Beasts of the Southern Wild," it's just so hard to say.

So what should you do before laying down a bet in the office Oscar pool? Turn to the prediction pros, of course -- puppies!

Hot off the heels of their winning Super Bowl pick, Jimmy Fallon's favorite team of fluffy pups returned to "Late Night" Wednesday to make the call.

With nine shiny bowls of dog food to choose from, each tagged with the name of one nominated film, the pooches stormed the stage and … well, they ate food from the several of the closest bowls in an attempt to fill up fast. Hey, first and foremost, they're dogs.

But fear not, their Kreskin skills kicked in eventually. A couple of furballs zeroed in on one bowl in particular and made it official: "Argo" is destined to win!

Or possibly not. They're only puppies after all.
