Vin Diesel Says Fast Five Should Get Oscar Buzz

Posted on Tue May 10, 2011 01:30 PM PDT

Diesel230.1.jpgFast Five has been generating huge box office numbers, but ... Oscar buzz?

As of Tuesday, the movie had already earned $140 million in ticket sales in North America and almost $200 million overseas. For the fifth film in a franchise, that's pretty impressive. A sixth movie is now in the works thanks to the fifth's success.

But franchise star Vin Diesel seems to think Fast Five has even more potential ... Academy Award potential. The actor told the Los Angeles Times that the films are successful because they reach middle America, but that they're much more than just middle-of-the-road movies.

    "I wouldn't be surprised if there is some Oscar talk around this ... 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.'"

What do you think -- does Fast Five deserve an Oscar?
