In one of the biggest upsets at Sunday’s Oscars, Creed star Sylvester Stallone lost in the Best Supporting Actor category to Mark Rylance from Bridge of Spies. Stallone has never won an Academy Award — the first Rocky won Best Picture and Director in 1977, but nothing for Stallone’s screenplay or performance — and who knows if he’ll ever get another chance? But don’t worry, you guys, because Sly is just fine, and he let the world know on Instagram today.

He wrote: To all the “real Rocky’s” of the world, Please hang on to your dreams, NEVER GIVE IN , NEVER GIVE OUT , NEVER GIVE UP! thanks for the support.

Stallone’s “Gonna fly now”-style advice came hours after his pal and Expendables co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a message to Twitter telling Stallone that “no matter what they say” his performance was the best. “I’m proud of you,” the Terminator added.

Meanwhile, Sylvester Stallone’s brother Frank was in a less gracious mood. Earlier today, he tweeted about his anger over the Oscar result.

He appeared to cool down later though and apologized for his knock on Rylance.
