LOS ANGELES, April 14 (UPI) -- Vin Diesel paid homage to his late co-star Paul Walker in an emotional acceptance speech at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night.

Diesel, who's currently filming Fast & Furious 7, couldn't attend the ceremony, but thanked fans via video message.

"Back in 2002, it was you, the MTV audience, that first acknowledged this brotherhood between Paul Walker and myself by honoring us with the best team on film,” Diesel said. “So it’s surreal to be standing here 12 years later and that you have been so generous to give us this award again."

"Thank you for honoring me and, more importantly, thank you for honoring that angel -- my brother Paul Walker," he added.
