The actor accepted two People's Choice Awards for Furious 7 -- Favorite Action Movie and Favorite Film -- and like he has in the past, got choked up remembering his late co-star, Paul Walker.
“I was cool while I was sitting in my seat, and then they handed me two awards. One for favorite action movie, and one for favorite film," he said. "You all thought this was your favorite film...so I think of Dom and Brian, and I start to think of Paul.”
“It was a labor of love," Diesel continued. "My only message to you is: you’d be amazed what you can do with love. You’d be amazed how powerful of a force that is. When we didn’t want to come back to filming when the tragedy was too heavy, it was the love of everyone combined that saw [us] through to the end, and now is standing here with all of you telling me this was your favorite film of the year.”
The 48-year-old actor concluded the acceptance speech with an emotional couple of lines from Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again," crooning, "The only thing I can say now is, 'It’s been a long day without you my friend. And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again.'"
