It won’t happen until 2017 at the earliest, but Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has been quoted a saying “We want to win an Oscar.”

Sunday’s edition of the German daily Die Welt says Bezos wants his Amazon Prime video streaming service to win top Hollywood honors for one of 16 films it’s planning.

Amazon won five Emmys for “Transparent,” so an Oscar is not a stretch.

The Amazon feature films will hit the big screen but also be shown on Amazon’s online service.
