Vin Diesel took to the stage at last night’s MTV Movie and TV Awards along with The Fast and the Furious franchise co-stars Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster to accept the ceremony’s Movie & TV Generation Award for the beloved film franchise.
Vin took time to reflect on the history of the franchise as well as his late co-star and close friend, Paul Walker: “In 2002, I was standing on this stage and MTV had given Paul Walker and I an award for best duo. And now, 15 years later, I’m with my whole family and you’ve given us the Generation Award.”
The franchise has been delighting fans for years, with a current total of eight installments. In 2013 it lost one of its main actors, Paul Walker, who died in a tragic car crash.
Vin went on to address Paul by his nickname and say that he hopes they’re making him proud: “Pablo, we hope you’re proud.”
He then thanked the fans, without whom this franchise would have never come as far as it has, saying, “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. When you’re family, you’re family.”
