Sylvester Stallone got a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor, and then forgot a couple of important people in his acceptance speech.

"Last time I was here, that was 1977," Stallone said after receiving a standing ovation from the crowd. "It was a long time ago. It’s like a different, different situation and the view is so beautiful now."

The "Creed" star thanked his agent, publicist, past publicist, wife and children before crediting the character that made him a star.

"Most of all, I want to thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I ever have," Stallone concluded.

Which means the director of Creed, Ryan Coogler, and his co'star, Michael B. Jordan, were left out in the cold.

Many took notice on social media, including Sameul L. Jackson.

Stallone, however, reportedly thanked both by name from stage wwafter the show went to commercial, and Jackson softened his tone.

Stallone also got a shout-out from fellow action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger,

Stallone told Entertainment Tonight after he won that he and Schwarzenegger were friends now after years of trying to be top box office dog.

"You know, he's become such a close friend. We were so adversarial. It was like Frazier/Ali, and he's become such a gentleman," He said. "Thank you, Arnold."

Sly's younger brother, the musician Frank Stallone, was proud to see him back onstage as a winner.
