Sylvester Stallone was a returning Golden Globe winner on Sunday (he gained final 12 months for Finest Supporting Actor for Creed) and he was additionally on the Globes as a proud papa. His three daughters had been the “Miss Golden Globes,” the on-hand presenters tasked with shepherding drunk celebrities off the stage and passing out Golden Globes to the opposite presenters. However there have been few-to-no cutaways of Stallone and his spouse Jennifer Flavin in the course of the telecast. Why was that? There was a seating snafu and Stallone is perhaps carrying a grudge about it.
Regardless of his three daughters sharing the title of Miss Golden Globes and having the function of introducing finest image, Sylvester Stallone was nowhere in sight in the course of the present. Now it seems that his absence was as a result of a seating concern at his assigned desk, which included Manchester by the Sea star Casey Affleck, the movie’s producer Matt Damon and its writer-director, Kenneth Lonergan.
In response to a number of sources, issues obtained testy after Stallone, 70, and his spouse Jennifer Flavin walked as much as their desk in the course of the present’s opening quantity to seek out just one obtainable open seat.
One present supply tells PEOPLE that nobody, together with Affleck, 41, and Damon, made an effort to accommodate the Stallones, who grew annoyed and seemingly embarrassed, and finally retreated to the inexperienced room backstage. The couple wouldn’t return to the desk and watched the present from backstage as an alternative. One other supply near the scenario agrees there was “confusion” over the seating however insists there was no ailing will in direction of Stallone from Affleck or anybody on the desk.
“There weren’t sufficient seats and so there was confusion, but it surely wasn’t private in opposition to him,” says the supply, including that a further chair was dropped at the desk and seats going through the stage had been finally freed up. (At that time, Stallone had little curiosity in returning to his desk to take a seat with Affleck and the remainder of the Manchester group, a number of sources inform PEOPLE).
Later within the night, Affleck, who went on to win a Golden Globe for Finest Efficiency by an Actor in a Movement Image, Drama, crossed paths with Stallone within the inexperienced room and tried to apologize for the seating snafu, however Stallone was not receptive.
Stallone’s rep didn’t touch upon the specifics of the report, however supplied, “The story you discuss with is an fascinating rumor – however a rumor nonetheless. Sylvester Stallone had an exquisite night attending and presenting on the Golden Globes and celebrating together with his household and mates.” Affleck’s rep supplied no remark.
The one factor I discover unbelievable (as in, I don’t consider it) is that Casey Affleck would magnanimously go as much as Stallone and attempt to make peace in regards to the seating scenario. I even have my doubts about whether or not there was any “ailing will.” However certain… this type of factor occurs, particularly when the awards-show seating is by desk. Many of the large motion pictures have total tables, however for smaller motion pictures, you may need to share your desk with different folks. It sounds just like the Manchester by the Sea desk was presupposed to share and there weren’t sufficient seats. It additionally appears like a “Hollywood is like highschool” concern. We’re the cool desk, you’ll be able to’t sit with us!
