Sylvester Stallone Wins the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture
What a knockout!
Sylvester Stallone is officially back with a best supporting actor Golden Globe for his touching turn in Creed.
Receiving a standing ovation from the crowd, the 69-year-old told his peers: “Please, thank you! I’m going to try not to get emotional because I am the sum total of everyone I’ve ever met.”
“The last time I was here, it was 1977,” said Stallone of his previous two nominations for best actor, drama, and best screenplay for Rocky, the movie that originated the character for which he finally took home a Globe on Sunday.
“It was kind of a different situation,” he continued, “and the view is beautiful from here today.”
The actor also thanked his dates for the night – his wife and daughters – saying, “actually having you love is the greatest award every day.”
Stallone went on to thank his earliest supporters, “Who actually mortgaged their house [to help] a bumbling actor get the chance of a lifetime.”
Finally, he said that “most of all, I want to thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I ever had.”
