Wednesday night, after actor Paul Walker's final film, "Furious 7," scored two People's Choice awards (Favorite Action Movie and Favorite Film), his co-star and friend, Vin Diesel accepted the awards and paid tribute to the late Walker and all of the people behind the "Fast and Furious" series.

According to the People's Choice Awards, "there wasn't a dry eye in the house" after Vin Diesel delivered a short musical tribute to his late "Furious 7" co-star.

It has been more than two years since actor Paul Walker died in a horrific car crash.

Diesel's three-and-a-half minute acceptance speech, punctuated by several emotional pauses, shared the story of how difficult it was for him and the rest of the cast and crew to complete the final shooting of "Furious 7" after Walker's death.

"It was a labor of love," Diesel said. "My only message to you is, you'd be amazed what you could do with love. You'd be amazed how powerful a force that is. When we didn't want to come back to filming because the tragedy was too heavy, it was the love of everyone combined that saw us through to the end. And now, I stand here with all of you telling me this is your favorite film of the year."
