I don’t think this has ever happened before.  I know it’s not the Oscars, but it can snowball into an Oscar win.  in case you forgot, The first Rocky movie won the Academy Award for best picture in 1977.  Yeah, go look it up, best picture.  It was an underdog win, and Sylvester Stallone was nominated for best actor for the title role of the character Rocky Balboa.

Well, here we are 40 years later, and Stallone just snatched the Golden Globe award for best supporting actor for playing the same character from 40 years ago in the movie Creed, which is essentially Rocky 7!  Amazing, I am a bit thrown back by the odds of that ever happening again.  Of course it would take 40 years and a lot of Geritol and Viagra…

I still miss Paulie.
