Actors, actresses, and anyone in Hollywood and in the entertainment business, are often lauded, awarded and remembered during events and ceremonies, in moving tributes that touch the hearts of every fan, and of everyone who had the opportunity of working with them while they were still alive. Recently, one of the most moving tributes was given to the beloved “Fast & Furious” film franchise actor, Paul Walker, by his cast mates and those that were present during the Teen’s Choice Awards last Monday, August 17, 2015. Read on to learn more about the tribute to Paul Walker that happened during this year’s Teen Choice Awards.

Right after the cast of “Furious 7,” which included Vin Diesel, Ludacris, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordan Brewster, according to the website of MTV, took the stage to receive the award of Choice Action Movie for “Furious 7,” actor Vin Diesel gave a moving tribute to his “brother” Paul Walker, whom he fondly mentioned during his brief speech, using his nickname for him – “Pablo.”

“Furious 7”, the latest installment in the “Fast & Furious” film franchise, finished filming after Paul’s untimely death, with his brother, Cody Walker, standing in for him for several scenes, and was released in 2015, more than a year after his death.

During Diesel’s speech, according to Entertainment Weekly, Diesel amid the cheers of the crowd, stated that for them, the cast of the film franchise, working alongside Paul, and being able to call him a brother, was one of the “best blessings” that happened to them, and stated that Paul was with them at that moment in spirit.

Diesel then, according to the website of MTV, in the spirit of the Teen Choice Awards, mentioned Paul’s family, and singled out Paul’s teenaged daughter Meadow Walker, and thanked her for encouraging “Fast & Furious” cast in completing the film.

Aside from this, Ludacris announced that Paul had also posthumously won the Choce Action Movie Actor Award for his role as Brian O’Connor.
