Though he wasn't up for any prizes at this year's Golden Globe Awards, Sylvester Stallone still played a big part during the ceremony on Sunday evening. Firstly he accompanied his three daughters Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet who were sharing the title of Miss Golden Globes, and later in the evening the action heavyweight presented the Best Motion Picture-Drama award to the much-lauded Moonlight.
However, it seems like even being a #celebrity and an important part of the show still doesn't make you immune to seating dramas! Sources say that Sly and his wife, Jennifer Flavin spent most of their night backstage in the green room after they arrived at their table, which was shared by Manchester by the Sea's Casey Affleck and Matt Damon, only to find one open seat.

People.com reports that no one at the table, including Affleck or Damon, made any attempt to accommodate the 70-year-old actor and his wife, and after the situation became increasingly frustrating and embarrassing, the pair returned backstage for the remainder of the evening.
Sources say that the seating situation did indeed cause "confusion," though eventually a second chair was added to the table and room was freed up. However, by this time the Stallones had no inclination to return to their table, and instead remained backstage.
Following the table dramas, sources say that Stallone and Affleck actually crossed paths backstage after Affleck's win for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture-Drama. But when Affleck attempted an apology for the earlier issue, Stallone was less than receptive.
Stallone's rep later dismissed the rumor of the issue as "an interesting rumor – but a rumor nonetheless," adding that "Sylvester Stallone had a wonderful evening attending and presenting at the Golden Globes and celebrating with his family and friends."
Meanwhile, Affleck's representation gave no comment.
Manchester by the Sea is in cinemas now.
