Sylvester Stallone was a heavy favorite to win this year’s Best Supporting Actor Oscar for reprising his Rocky role in “Creed,” but the award instead went to Mark Rylance for “Bridge of Spies.”
And Sly’s brother Frank is pissed:
Some people were right there with him:

@Stallone amen! He won the exact award at a different award show but not the oscars? He was robbed and we all know it!

But others thought Frank needed to dial it back a little:

Wow. Frank Stallone is SO pissed off that his brother didn't win the Oscar, and rightly so, but it's not Mark Rylance's fault.

@Stallone why would he be embarrassed? He's one of the finest actors around. What has creating 2 icons got to do with who's the best actor?

@Stallone Come on dude, stay classy. It would have been a lifetime achievement award for Sly anyway.

@Stallone what a pathetic and disrespectful comment.

Word of warning to his critics, though: Frank doesn’t have the time or patience for your input.
Don’t worry — there’s more where that came from:
