Sylvester Stallone forgot to thank his black costar and director.

NBC

Oops. Sly got a standing ovation for his Best Supporting Actor win in Creed, but given that it was one of the only Hollywood movies starring a black actor (Michael B. Jordan) and directed by a black director (Ryan Coogler), it certainly didn’t go unnoticed.

Stallone did go back on stage during the commercial break to thank them, telling Coogler he is a “brilliant, brilliant filmmaker.” Hopefully NBC will put that clip online after the show.
