Mark Wahlberg claims he knows who's going to win at the Oscars.
The 'Contraband' star will be in Paris on Sunday when the Academy Awards will take place, but already knows the winners through his connections.
He predicts the 'The Artist' will take the coveted Best Picture prize - the biggest of the night - while its lead male, Jean Dujardin will beat competition from Demian Bichir, George Clooney, Gary Oldman and Brad Pitt to take the Best Actor prize.
He told The Huffington Post U.K.: "It's not a matter of who I want to win, it's who I know is going to win."
When asked by the website how he knew the results, he replied: "Because I've got a friend at PriceWaterhouse," referring to PwC, the professional services company which provides auditing services to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, meaning it is the certifier of votes for the Oscars, a role it has held since 1934.
Mark went on to say 'The Help' will be a big winner with Viola Davis winning Best Actress and Octavia Spencer winning for Best Supporting Actress.
He added: "Christopher Plummer will win for Best Supporting Actor and the team behind 'Transformers' will win for best sound editing, and 'Hugo' - they will win Best Costume, Production and Cinematography."
Film fans will be able to find out if Mark is bluffing or not when the Oscars take place at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood on Sunday night.
