Forty years after Rocky‘s debut, the former film rivals Sylvester Stallone and Carl Weathers shared the stage to present the final award of the night at the Golden Globes.


“I can’t believe it’s been 40 years,” said Weathers, 68.

“I can’t believe I let you win the fight, considering I wrote the screenplay,” quipped Stallone in response.

The crowd enjoyed the friendly banter between old rivals. Before they presented the award for best drama film to Moonlight, Weathers interviewed with People. “It doesn’t seem like it’s been 40 years. It seems like it was just yesterday, but it is just such an honor people still love the film. It’s fantastic to stand on the stage together again after all these years. It’s really like a dream because people come and go in Hollywood, and to be here 40 years later and to have a career that started even before that … Man, it’s wild.”

Stallone was busy on the red carpet parading his three daughters, Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet, who were this year’s Miss Golden Globes. The actor recently rung in the new year at Donald Trump‘s New Year’s Eve party.

Stallone played Rocky throughout the 1990s, and reprised the character once in 2006 and again in 2015’s Creed, for which he earned a Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe.
