“Furious 7,” “The Big Bang Theory” and Melissa McCarthy were all multiple winners Wednesday at The People’s Choice Awards, an annual broadcast honoring excellence in film, TV and music as determined by you, the entertainment-loving public.

“Furious 7” star Vin Diesel delivered the most emotional moment of the night while accepting two awards for the blockbuster — one for favorite action movie and one for favorite film.

“It was a labor of love,” Diesel said, referring to the death of co-star Paul Walker during production. “My only message to you is: You’d be amazed what you can do with love. You’d be amazed how powerful of a force that is. When we didn’t want to come back to filming, when the tragedy was too heavy, it was the love of everyone combined that saw through to the end.”

This year’s People’s Choice Awards, hosted by former “Glee” star Jane Lynch, were presented at the Microsoft Theater L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles and aired live on CBS. Jason Derulo and Shawn Mendes joined the Emmy-winning actress on stage as musical guests.

Millions of votes were cast by fans, according to the awards show’s official website, with many stars including Chris Pratt, Taylor Swift and Robert Downey Jr. getting multiple nominations.
