Vin Diesel says 'Furious 7' Oscar chances hindered by Academy's 'stigma towards action films'

Vin Diesel thinks that the chances of “Furious 7” being nominated for an Oscar will be hindered by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ “stigma towards action films.”

“Do I shy away from aiming high? No, I don’t,” the actor who previously said the sequel “will win Best Picture” told the Associated Press. “And yet we all know that there’s a little stigma towards action films, we know it, we’ve heard people complain about it.”
