The 77-year-old Hollywood favorite was seen beaming as he held up the framed certificate and the gift boxed gold pin.
He had on a royal blue shirt with a gold necklace as his gray hair was carefully groomed to match his goatee.

The stars have been front and center this year with their reality TV series.
The Hollywood family has starred in The Family Stallone, a reality series following the attractive bunch as they navigate life in Los Angeles while tending to their careers.
The show was an eight-part series starring the action star with his wife and kids.
It premiered on the platform on May 17, 2023.
The show was announced at the start of the year.
‘After playing some of the most legendary characters in cinematic history, three-time Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone is ready to give cameras access to what he would consider the greatest role of his lifetime: dad,’ a press release for the show says, according to Variety.
‘This new series starring Stallone’s three daughters, wife and himself offers a seat at the table of one of Hollywood’s most famous families.’
On top of learning more about Stallone, the show focused on his wife Flavin who co-owns wellness brand Serious Skin Care.
Sophia and Sistine Stallone are the hosts of the Unwaxed podcast.

Sistine and Scarlet both aspire to become actresses, while Sophia has not caught the acting bug.
The Stallones shot in 2022. They worked with the same production team that made Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
While deciding whether to sign-off on the show, the longtime action hero thought about all the time he missed with his children on the sets of his many films, and how shooting the new series with his wife and three daughters would give him much more family time.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Stallone said he agreed to do the show for his daughters, and the time he’ll be able to spend with them, instead of another film set by himself.
‘[That’s] one of the reasons I wanted to do the reality show that I’ve been taking a lot of s**t for,’ he said, before confessing he’s excited for viewers to see him in his element.

He explained how he finally said yes because he’s on top again in his work as a filmmaker: ‘I have this resurgence going on, so why not at this moment show people what it is like, not when you are over or retired?’
The New York City native loved helping his daughters.
‘A lot of things have conquered me, but I have conquered my dreams and aspirations. Now it’s their time,’ Stallone said, while remarking about his kid’s careers.
Stallone went on to confirm that his and Flavin’s recent troubles – which saw her file for divorce only to reconcile – will be documented on the reality show.
Stallone and Flavin, who celebrated their 26th wedding anniversary in May, started their romance back in 1988 but broke up after several years together. They would eventually reunite several years later and go on to tie-the-knot in 1997.
Along with their three daughters, the Oscar-winner also had two sons with his first wife, Sasha Czack: Sage, who died of heart failure in July 2012 at the age of 36, and Seargeoh, 44.
Stallone was also previously married to actress Brigette Nielsen.
