Sylvester Stallone is the Comeback Story of the Year

Tune to ABC later this month for a one hour television special hosted by the network’s Robin Roberts as she chats with 2016’s most interesting Academy Award nominees.

“Journey to the Oscars” will feature a one-on-one with Sylvester Stallone, as well as actors Brie Larson, Bryan Cranston, Sir Ridley Scott and Matt Damon. The well-produced special will spotlight moments in each celebrity’s career that have particularly defined them.

ABC’s website promotes the special saying:

Sylvester Stallone: It’s the comeback story of the year. There may be no more compelling narrative in the entire Oscar season than the nomination of Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa in “Creed.” For millions of people around the world, Rocky is more than just a great movie character: he symbolizes our ability to realize our dreams. Roberts sits down with Stallone, where they discuss how much strength and insight the character has given him personally over the years and how he has consistently and artistically found a way to adapt his signature character to a new story, one that fits and echoes the times.

“Journey to the Oscars” airs Sunday, February 21, 2016 (10:00PM ET)

The 88th Annual Academy Awards takes place just one week later on Sunday, February 28, 2016 and will be broadcast live. Sylvester Stallone will most assuredly appear in the obligatory red carpet interviews and we hope to see the Italian Stallion finally take home his Oscar!
