It was his first appearance at the prestigious awards show since 1977 and the announcement of his name inspired his esteemed peers to give the Rocky legend a standing ovation.

Sly wasn't short of admirers who weren't in attendance, like his long-time adversary Arnold Schwarzenegger, who shared this fitting tribute on his Twitter page.

The congratulations even spread as far as the Premier League, with Everton, whose Goodison Park stadium was used for shooting, chiming in to share the good news.

One standout element of Stallone's speech was his failure to mention his Creed co-star Michael B. Jordan or the director, Ryan Coogler.

We assume that he simply forgot amid the excitement and surprise of his victory, but it was definitely a noted omission.
