I am not watching the Oscars, but I am thinking about the 1997 Kurt Russell hixploitation movie Breakdown, so that's basically the same thing

@LarryDavis @wintgenstein that's broadly true; it originally referred to a lot of Southeastern regional action/grindhouse cinema from the 60s and 70s, which fed into the trucker craze of the 70s (which game us stuff like Convoy and Dukes of Hazzard and shit)

breakdown kicks ass, in my memory, and i will not be watching it again to see if that remains true
