Not only did Furious 7 win Favorite Action Film, but it won Favorite Movie -- an honor that really seemed to blow Vin away.

You know, as I was coming up here, I always do this. I say I’m not going to get emotional about, you know, winning these awards, and I was cool when I was sitting in my seat, and then they handed me two awards. One for favorite action movie and one for favorite film. You all thought that this was your favorite film.

Aww! "It’s just pure fans saying how much they appreciate our work, and that means the world to me," he added.

But that gracious and sincere acknowledgement of how honored he feels is just the beginning. Because when Vin gets to the end of his speech, and turns his thoughts to his late costar and good friend, Paul Walker, that's when this action hero shows his true stuff. Because oh yes he did -- he busted out with the chorus of Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again," the song commissioned for Furious 7 as a tribute to Paul (the man Vin named his daughter after! Sniff).

And that's when you're gonna need those tissues.

"Be amazed at what you can do with love..."

What an incredible message to share with the world! Vin Diesel, you're a class act and a true friend. No wonder you're a fan favorite.
