VIDEO: Sylvester Stallone got the best reaction at the Golden Globes when his name was announced
A standing ovation for Sly, but he forgot two crucial names in his speech.
Sylvester Stallone picked up the Best Supporting Actor for Creed at the Golden Globes - his first ever Golden Globe win.
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.
Stallone's reaction to the terrific moment was brilliant, as was his speech.
Take a gander...

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.
