Sylvester Stallone has won the best Supporting Actor award at the 73rd Golden Globes for his performance in Creed. The actor received a standing ovation from his peers as he accepted the award.
Stallone, who was last nominated in 1976 for writing the first Rocky film, thanked colleagues, family and friends, singling out producers Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff to note that Chartoff had once mortgaged his house in order to give the actor “the shot of a lifetime.”
To conclude the acceptance speech, Stallone offered an emotional word of thanks: ”Most of all, I wanna thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I ever had.”

I'm so glad Sly finally got the recognition he so richly deserves! It brings me back to when Clint Eastwood was seen as an "action" hero (not much respect for the types back in the day), and then when he got older, he was seen as a GREAT actor! Hollywood is weird that way!

Hallo Sly, entschuldige bitte die persönliche Ansprache, da wir uns aber kaum mal über den Weg laufen werden, wirst Du das sicher verkraften können :-) Ich möchte mich eigentlich nur bei Dir bedanken. Für Deine Filme und vielen Stunden die ich damit verbringen durfte. Ich bin 42 Jahre alt und Deine Filme haben mich ein Leben lang begleitet. Gestern durfte ich nun endlich Creed sehen und muss Dir sagen, dass mich Deine Darstellung des „alten Mannes“ Rocky berührt und tief bewegt hat. Rocky ist nicht nur ein Film – Du bist Rocky! Durch Deine Arbeit, hast Du viele Menschen glücklich gemacht. ------------Vielen Dank!------------- Und der Oscar geht dieses Jahr zu 100% an Dich! Das weiß ich, weil ich aus Glückstadt komme! Viele Grüße aus Deutschland!

Mr Stallone you need not thank anyone as we should be thanking you. Congratulations on the recognition you deserve and thankyou for all the years of entertainment you have given me. I could write for ever but the easiest thing to say is Thankyou Very Much from my soul to you. Like yourself I feel that Rocco Balboa is a friend, strange but true that you are able to create a character that reaches into the essence of people so deep that we can relate to them as if they exist. Enjoy your life and I hope one day I may even get to meet you.

Now being a grown man I still follow these rule everyday within every aspect of my life, as Rocky also would have never given up....you have not gone emotional that night, however I did watching you accepting this award so much overdue.... thank you for all you did to regular guys like me by creating your "best fried you have ever got"....Thank you for being my hero for all these years......Artur from Poland.....
