Watch: Stunned Sly Stallone Brought The House Down With Golden Globes Win And Speech

In a night where Ricky Gervais once more proved himself the Bono of epigrammatic ingenuity with a sharp-tongued slaying of all things Hollywood, it was a self-proclaimed "mumbling actor" who provided the knockout moment.

This awards season’s own personal 'Rocky story' continued apace, as 69-year-old Sylvester Stallone received his due at the Golden Globes, laying his gloves on the Best Supporting Actor prize - his first ever Globe - for his enthralling performance in Ryan Coogler's Rocky spin-off, Creed.

It was Stallone's first major award victory since his potrayal of the same character, Rocky Balboa, in the original Rocky back in 1977, and the shocked people's champion received a raucous standing ovation - to the Rocky theme song no less - before bringing the house down with a typically humble speech:
