Don’t be sly, Sly.
In fact, the Creed star was so surprised that he finally won for his portrayal of Rocky that he pretty much forgot to thank anyone involved in the spin-off/sequel.
People actually in attendance were quick to point out that the 69-year-old actor actually returned to the stage to thank Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, and director Ryan Coogler during a commercial break, but he took to Twitter Monday night just to clear up any lingering concerns, saying:
Samuel Jackson is upset that I foolishly forgot to mention the brilliant Ryan Coogler and MB Jordan he is right I owe them everything

Luckily, it seems like the tweet did fix the Rocky actor’s sticky situation, especially with Samuel L. Jackson, who responded:
Just don’t do it again if you happen to win the Oscar, Sly!
