Sylvester Stallone won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for his role in “Creed.”

Sylvester Stallone extended his Golden Globes speech on Twitter — after prompting from Samuel L. Jackson.

The Oscar winner was called out by “The Hateful Eight” star for failing to thank “Creed” co-star Michael B. Jordan and the film’s director Ryan Coogler during Sunday’s awards show.

“Samuel Jackson is upset that I foolishly forgot to mention the brilliant Ryan Coogler and MB Jordan he is right I owe them everything,” the 69-year-old tweeted Tuesday.

Following his win for best supporting actor in “Creed,” the 69-year-old thanked his family, agents and even his “imaginary friend” Rocky Balboa “for being the best friend I ever had.”

After concluding his remarks, Stallone realized he had forgot to mention Jordan and Coogler returned to the stage to thank them.

But his words did not make it to broadcast, leading Jackson to tweet, “#waitwaitwait, Ryan Coogler & Michael B Jordan, Thanks for acting with me!!! Loved Sly but…”

After Stallone apologized, Jackson praised the “Rocky” star, telling him, “I loved the performance @TheSlyStallone, You killed It! I know you love those guys!”

Stallone might get a chance to thank Jordan and Coogler in a future awards show speech: his Golden Globes win has put him in the mix for Academy Awards consideration, with the Oscar nominations to be announced Thursday.
