"I think he went into making this movie with a little bit of a chip on his shoulder, going 'Oh, really? OK. Now I'm going to take the biggest saga in the world, and I'm about to throw Oscars at you.' Wait until you see what he does!" Diesel said, referring to Gray somewhat controversially missing out on an Oscar last year.
Even though we don't think Fast 8 will bring home the Oscar that Diesel is expecting, there are many types of Oscar awards. There are awards for sound, visual effects, and other technical awards. Considering the spectacular stunts of previous outings in the franchise, and those of the upcoming movie, we supposed there could be award-winning possibilities for the film. But something like best film or best actor... well, that sounds like a bit of a stretch.
