Vin Diesel sure is setting himself up to be furious this coming award season..
That's because the action star has gone on record saying that he thinks Furious 7 is going to sweep the Academy Awards!
Not only that, but he thinks the seventh chapter in his racing franchise could win Best Picture.
We're not saying he's wrong, but none of the first six movies even got nominated… but still, we haven't seen it, so who knows!
Vin shared his very ballsy prediction in a recent interview, saying:
"Universal is going to have the biggest movie in history with this movie. It will probably win best picture at the Oscars, unless the Oscars don't want to be relevant ever.
This will win best picture. There is nothing that will ever come close to the power of this thing."
While we're not so sure he right about the film's Oscar potential, we do think he's onto something when he says Universal is going to have a hit on its hands.

Considering Furious 7 was filmed around Paul Walker's tragic death, and that the sixth movie made over $780 million worldwide, we think it's a safe assumption that this one is gonna make even more money!
Plus, Iggy Azalea is in it, so it's obviously going to crack the $1 billion mark.
Do U see any Oscars in Vin Diesel's future???
