Los Angeles - Sylvester Stallone caused controversy after forgetting to thank Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan in his Golden Globes acceptance speech.
The 69-year-old actor appeared tearful when he picked up his second-ever prize at the ceremony, Best Supporting Actor, for Creed, and despite a lengthy acceptance speech, he initially omitted to extend his gratitude to the movie's director or his co-star.
However, after realising his mistake, he stopped the music to rectify the situation, telling filmmaker Ryan: "You are a brilliant, brilliant filmmaker... You did it all, I just hung on for dear life."
Unfortunately, the comments were not aired as the show had gone to a commercial break, prompting a flurry of outrage on social media.
Selma director Ava DuVernay tweeted:
Well. I'm gonna go ahead and thank RYAN COOGLER + MICHAEL B. JORDAN since no one else is. Thank you, brothers. Good work. #smh #goldenglobes— Ava DuVernay (@AVAETC) January 11, 2016

However, Ryan didn't seem to upset by the snub.
He said backstage: "No, no, no! Not at all.
"I don't know what's happening on Twitter but I love Sly...
"And what he said was so nice! (sic)"
Creed saw Stallone reprise his role as boxer Rocky Balboa for the spin-off movie and he praised the character as the ''best friend'' he ever had.
He said in his speech: ''I wanna thank Rocky, the best friend I ever had...
"I am the sum total of everyone I've ever met."
The veteran actor also paid a touching tribute to his wife Jennifer Flavin.
He said: "Having your love is the greatest award in the world every day."
