In a recent interview with Julie Miller of Movie Line, Tyrese Gibson followed up on Vin Diesel's "interesting" proclamation last Spring "that he [Diesel] wouldn't be surprised if there was Oscar buzz surrounding the film [Fast Five]" Gibson had a cut and clear response to such assertions...

He stated to Julie that:

"Oscar buzz around Fast Five? I don’t know. That’s Vin Diesel’s opinion and I respect it, but I don’t know about Oscar buzz. I don’t think this is that type of movie."

Well it looks like Tyrese has more going on upstairs than that confident (or is it cocky) attitude would suggest. You can read the full interview including more from Tyrese on his plans to "change the universe" HERE.

Oh, and by the way, what are your thoughts on what Diesel said and Tyrese's response? Fast Five as an Oscar contender...c'mon, really now. You all know in the run up to its release I was all for the sexy of it, but Academy Award winning material? Seems like another thing to make ya go...hmm.

What say you?

    I haven't seen it yet, but I only want to watch the scene where Diesel and Dwayne duke it out.

    If a piece of garbage like "Avatar" could be nominated for an Oscar, anything can.

    I haven't seen it but I would hasten to guess that 'any' nod would come by way of technical aspect... as 'most' nominated action movies do...

    I'll have to rent it soon. I'm behind on so many flicks...
