Sylvester Stallone just won his first Golden Globe Award for his portrayal of Rocky Balboa in "Creed". Maybe its because of the way he talks or some of the roles he's played, but Stallone's abilities have been highly overlooked since the first Rocky won the "Best Picture" Oscar 40 years ago.
The fact is, Sylvester Stallone is a highly intelligent and poignent filmmaker and performer. Although all his performances as Rocky Balboa have been stellar, there was something different about his 7th outing in "Creed" that made me laugh and cry in ways I never had before.
At 69 years of age and close to 50 years in the industry, Stallone is finally getting his due - and no one deserves it more.
