8 Jan – It was an emotional acceptance speech by Vin Diesel when the "Fast and Furious" star choked up while paying a tribute to co-star Paul Walker.

The actor-producer sang parts of "See You Again", the theme song to the latest instalment in the series which served as a goodbye to the late Walker, who passed away in an accident not related to the movie before the filming of "Fast And Furious 7" could be completed.

"It was the love of everyone combined that saw us through to the end," Vin Diesel said while accepting the awards for the movie, which won Favourite Movie as well as Favourite Action Movie.

Other winners of the night include Channing Tatum (Favourite Movie Actor), Sandra Bullock (Favourite Movie Actress), Chris Hemsworth (Favourite Action Movie Actor), Melissa McCarthy (Favourite Comedic Movie Actress) and more.
