See the complete video series of Scene-Stealers 2012 Oscar Predictions here.

In this video, Eric Melin and Trevan McGee pick the winners in the Best Actor category. This is one category that is pretty up in air at this point, even though one man has a distinct edge from earlier guild wins and the BAFTAs (if the BAFTAs even mean anything). What we’re trying to say is that this category is the most fun to pick. Who’s going to win the Oscar? Watch the video to find out!

Whether you are attending the KC Oscar Party 2012 (Facebook event page – RSVP here!) or entering an online or office Oscar pool this year to predict the winner of the 2012 Academy Awards, Scene-Stealers has your back.

I’m going ballsy and choosing Clooney.

I think that’s still a pretty good choice, man! if I fill out 2 ballots, one will be Dujardin, the other Clooney…

He’s just been nominated twice before, only won for best supporting actor and the Academy seems to like well-knowns to get it. I’m guessing that the Academy wants a really good acceptance speech that Clooney can deliver. I don’t know, either can win but I’m giving these factors in the favor of George.

Damn, you were right. Good job.

Yeah, but we screwed up Meryl Streep. THAT was an upset!
