“Pablo,” Diesel said, “we hope you’re proud.”
Diesel continued his acceptance speech by thanking friends and family for their support.
“I gotta thank a generation that was willing to accept this multicultural franchise, where it didn’t matter what color your skin was or what country you were from,” he said. “When you’re family, you’re family.”
The speech ended with a video of some of Walker’s best movie moments.
Walker died in 2013 in a car crash while on a break from filming “Furious 7.” He was 40.
