The role of Rocky Balboa, played by Sylvester Stallone in 1976, placed the film spotlight brightly upon the City of Brotherly Love. Nominated for 10 Oscars in 1977, and winner of three (including Best Picture), the recognition given to Rocky could easily have given Philly a BIG head, and from the looks of this POP vinyl Rocky collectible figurine, it had that effect on Stallone. . . LOL!
Either way, thanks in large part to the hard work of all the folks over at the GPFO, in 2013, Philadelphia has its sights set on Oscar, once again, compliments of Silver Linings Playbook. It boasts 8 Oscar nods, including one for Hometown Hottie Bradley Cooper (his first)!
So this Sunday night, cheers to Rocky, best of luck to Silver Linings Playbook, kudos to the GPFO, love and lust to Bradley Cooper, and a sweet sofa snuggle to the one and only Oscar!
