Experts have already made their predictions for who will win Best Picture at the 2015 Oscars this year. But who wants to listen to them when we could let some adorable (and some adoptable!) four-legged friends do the honors instead? Trust dogs, not people, people.
With help from The Dogist, aka photographer Elias Weiss Friedman, and our friends at Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, these 12 lovely canines placed their votes for Best Picture from the following nominees: "Whiplash," "American Sniper," "Birdman," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game," "Selma," "The Theory of Everything," and "Boyhood."
Dog treats, while present in the voting room, did not affect the decision of the voters.*
*Okay maybe a little bit.
Let's meet the voters and see who they picked!

Cote is an all-American dog (Border Collie/Husky mix, if you must know) and he is 4 years old. He's also a famed Westminister dog, so he can totally relate to the fierce Oscars' race. This is nothing to Cote!

Well, clearly Miss Riley had trouble deciding. She first went to "The Grand Budapest Hotel," then picked "The Theory Of Everything," and then finally decided on "The Imitation Game." "The Imitation Game" it is!
As his Instagram bio describes him, Hamilton is a pug "with a rag to riches story." He was adopted from a shelter in Ohio and is now living the good life in New York. Follow Hamilton here.
And this is Hamilton's little brother, Rufus. Hamilton and Rufus weren't able to make it to the HuffPost office to cast their ballots -- they're busy dogs -- but they submitted their votes for "American Sniper."
Milo is a 3-year-old Maltese from Toronto, Canada. He's also an adorable fluffball that we would be honored to cuddle. Milo couldn't make it down to the states, but his pick is "Birdman." Follow Milo here
Pumpkin Sunshine is the closest thing you'll get to a live teddy bear living in the Big Apple. He also enjoys organic food and a good nap. His choice for Best Picture is "Selma." Follow Pumpkin Sunshine here
Okay, we'll admit it -- the dogs probably never saw these movies -- but hey, neither did you.
