Vin Diesel Thinks “Fast Five” Is Oscar Worthy

(Image Credit: Ernesto Ruscio/Getty Images)

Yes, you read the title correctly.

First, I’m not taking anything away from “Fast Five”.  In its opening weekend it brought in $86.2 million, making it the highest opening of any of the films in the series and the biggest opening weekend of any film in 2011 thus far.  The series, with the exception of “Tokyo Drift”, gets more successful with each film.  The immediate success of “Fast Five” has lead the studio to green light a sixth film for a 2013 release.

Having said that, is the “Fast and the Furious” series really anything more than a summer popcorn film?  That is an idea that Vin Diesel has spoken out against, believing the latest film to be Oscar worthy.

“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.’”
