Poor Sylvester Stallone.
The 69-year-old actor — who was favorited to win the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his outstanding performance in Creed — lost to Bridge of Spies actor Mark Rylance on Sunday, Feb. 28.
Before this evening's show, Sylvester — who also shared the nomination with actors Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hardy and Christian Bale — had not attended the Academy Awards in almost four decades!

In 1977, Sylvester was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in Rocky, a film that was also recognized with an Oscar nomination for Best Writing that same year. Tonight would have been his first Academy Award win.
