Will Fast Five Sweep The Oscars Next Year?

May 10, 2011 / Posted by:

Fast Five has made over $100 million at the box, is already the #1 movie of 2011 and Vin Diesel is so proud of it that he believe some of his co-workers might be fingering Oscar next year. This is what Vin told The Los Angeles Times about Fast Five’s Oscar chances.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if there is some Oscar talk around this. I don’t know, maybe I’m just biting off what some guy from Channel 7 thought. But sooner or later, people are gonna say, ‘Wait a minute, just because they are for the working class doesn’t mean they’re not great.'”

Spoken like a dude who inhaled more than exhaled while surrounded by exhaust fumes on the set. YES! I like the way Vin Diesel thinks. And I put on my Vin Diesel brain for a quick second to predict 2011’s nominees:

Best Picture
Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son
Fast Five
Red Riding Hood
Season of the Witch

Best Actor
Nicolas Cage, Drive Angry
Nicolas Cage, Season of the Witch
Vin Diesel, Fast Five
Kevin James, Zookeeper
Paul Walker, Fast Five

Best Actress
Justin Bieber, Never Say Never
Jordana Brewster, Fast Five
Vanessa Hudgens, Beastly
Lindsay Lohan, TMZ’s Live Streams
Kristen Stewart, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1

The Academy has been whispering that Kevin James is long overdue for an Oscar, but I still think Vin’s chances are looking good!
