“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,” Diesel said. “You all thought this was your favorite film. So I think of Dom and Brian, and I start to think of Paul.”

"The only thing I can say now is," Diesel said ending his emotional speech, “it’s been a long day without you my friend. And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again.”

Furious 7 remained undefeated, sweeping awards for favorite movie and favorite action movie at the People's Choice Awards.
