“When I started out, I just wanted to get a job. Then I discovered writing, and it was a fun way to express myself."

The honorary event includes a screening of his 1982 classic "Rambo: First Blood" and a preview for his upcoming film "Rambo V: Last Blood."

The family shined together on the red carpet. Jennifer wore a long-sleeved black, shimmery gown and Sistine opted for a figure-flattering long-sleeved metallic gold gown with a plunging neckline. Meanwhile, Stallone looked incredible in a black tuxedo.

“When I started out, I just wanted to get a job. Then I discovered writing, and it was a fun way to express myself. Ya know, without failing, if I had succeeded in what I wanted to do, it would have been over,” Stallone said.

He added: “But the fact is that I failed and found something else to do, which is be able to take the words inside and put ’em on the page and hopefully they would relate to everyone.”

"I want to thank the power of the written word," he continued. "This is the most extraordinary event I’ve ever seen. I did not expect this.”

Stallone increased overall popularity with his starring role in the massive hit film, "Rocky," which was nominated for ten Academy Awards. The film went on to win the Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Directing, and Best Film Editing.
