Los Angeles: Actor Vin Diesel, who is gearing up for his highly anticipated action thriller 'Furious 7', believes the tribute to the late Paul Walker should win the Best Picture award at next year's Oscars.
“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,” Diesel was quoted as saying.

The seventh instalment in the 'Fast and Furious' franchise, which is slated to release in India on April 2, has received rave responses for its previous parts. But does Diesel really think that the film could be the next 'Birdman'?
"This will win Best Picture. There is nothing that will ever come close to the power of this thing,” Diesel added.
In addition to welcoming back almost all of the franchise's principal cast members, 'Furious 7' features the last big-screen appearance by Paul Walker, who died while they were still filming.
