Forget consulting "the trades" like The Hollywood Reporter and Variety. Instead, do as NextMovie editor Kevin Polowy did and seek the opinion of the women with the most invaluable knowledge about the film business: strippers.

Polowy made a special trip to Rick's Cabaret to gather Oscar predictions from the exotic dancers, one of whom stated that Moneyball was her favorite for Best Picture because she likes both "money" and "balls." The editor also asked a half-clothed woman some hard-hitting questions about Martin Scorsese's foray into family-friendly entertainment, all while getting a lap dance. 

Watch the video above for more of their insightful predictions for the Academy Awards, airing this Sunday at 7 p.m. on ABC.
