George Clooney @ Critics Choice Awards 2008

George Clooney @ Critics Choice Awards 2008

George Clooney flashes his million-dollar smile at the 2008 Critics’ Choice Awards held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on Monday in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 46-year-old actor presented the Joel Siegel Award to his Ocean’s Thirteen costar Don Cheadle for his work “both on- and offscreen, inspiring and contributing to the good of humanity.”

Clooney, 46, is being credited with inspiring the actors’ boycott against the Golden Globe Awards.

Said one NBC executive, “We know Clooney is a major force behind this decision. He has been earbashing others who may have been willing to cross picket lines.”

It would seem that the master prankster’s plan worked! The Golden Globes were officially canceled earlier today by The Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

“We are all very disappointed that our traditional awards ceremony will not take place this year and that millions of viewers worldwide will be deprived of seeing many of their favorite stars celebrating 2007′s outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television,” HFPA president Jorge Camara said. “We take some comfort, however, in knowing that this year’s Golden Globe Award recipients will be announced on the date originally scheduled.” (The winners will be announced during a news conference at the Beverly Hilton.)

  • The Arab Aquarius

    He looks a bit like my dad, even though my dad is 62.
    He’s a nice guy, but should get married already

    He’s washed up, time for him to marry and settle down. Dude you don’t got it anymore.

  • la la la la

    show the hairspray cast!

  • lulu

    Where is his girlfriend ?

  • Smooth Operator

    GC for PREZ!

    Seriously, I am impressed that he lobbied and took a strong stance. I am laying my bet now that he runs for a political seat by 2012 – and wins.

  • joey

    Yeah…i think he’s earbashing because he knows he isn’t going to win. If there was more buzz about his performance in michael clayton and more buzz about him winning, then he wouldn’t be complaining about the strike.

    he’s a douche…

  • g

    he looks like an old old man. wrinkle and old.

  • Hollywood Misogynists

    You can’t buy likeability despite what you’re PR team tells you.


    He’s not looking foxy these days

  • goz

    yeah … but i still like him!

  • blah

    Gross never liked him.

  • jmo

    Stop giving him more credit than he deserves. His rep said he did NOT play a part in people not coming to the Globes. God Jared, this is an old story. It’s hours old by now, I know you had to have seen the rep response.

  • anonymous

    he is such handsome hunk. i love him.

  • none

    It’s time for him and Brad Pitt (sorry, peeps) to pass the hotness torch. Both are well past their prime.

  • depp fan

    none may be past your time, but brad is still hot, george is not.

  • Paradise

    He is the hottest guy I’ve ever seen. :)

  • anonymous

    I’m jealous of his waitress girlfriend. I thought waitressing was beneath me…I’m a fool. That’s how these chicks meet guys like him, waiting on them! Nannies, you name it. They love servitude!
    Too bad he’s a dead end street when it comes to commitment.
    Still so hot.

  • anon

    He only gets better looking…

  • rimmie

    I’m sorry but what is the difference between going to this award show and the Golden Globes? This show required writers just like the Globes did.

  • Anne

    That Times Online article is old news and was DENIED as 100% FALSE. How could you possibly miss that?! or

  • Didi

    he was my first teenage celebrity crush back in the 90′s.

    god he may be older but he’s still got it. i would leave my husband tomorrow for this gorgeous man if he came knocking at my door. hell i wouldnt care if he was 90, bald, toothless and on a life support machine, he”d still be sexy for me.

  • http://justjared Lips,tits and OMG the butt.

    It’s time for him and Brad Pitt (sorry, peeps) to pass the hotness torch. Both are well past their prime.

    Brad is still hot, don’t know what you talking bout!!!!

    So what if he did play a role! The fact is, the Writers’ Guild has issues that are important enough for them to go out on strike. They are striking against huge multi-national, multi-billion dollar corporations.
    So if the Guild can put the hurt on those corporations by forcing them to cancel shows where they would have made money from the advertising dollars, maybe they will settle. Because just maybe the public will be upset missing their favorite shows and they will demand the strike gets settled. And the actors might have to go out on strike later this year so it would be nice to show their support for the writers right now. Clooney is very outspoken. I love him!!! He is smart talented rich and good looking. He also seems like a good guy.

  • Tiger

    He looks great!

    Thanks Jared!!

  • kendra

    damn, what happened to him??? i never thought he was hot but I COULD see how others could find him to be so….but now??? it’s like he jumped across the river instead of taking the bridge. i want to give him some ensure and ask him if he needs his diaper changed. gotta go put on my wrinkle cream and brush with my rembrandt now….peace.

  • A. Nonny Mouse

    looks in a good mood guess he got that root canal taken care of and dumped the “escort” that he dragged around since venice film fest

  • TiredofthisCrap

    I don’t belive he had anything to do with the Golden Globes boycott. There’s an article at stating otherwise. He does look good. :)

  • TiredofthisCrap

    The Golden Globes were in jeopardy because they did not work out an agreement with the writers. No one would cross the picket line, regardless of what George says. He does look good though.

  • http://none belle

    He used to be really hot but he had hit the wall big time. Too much
    booze and women? 46 is not that old if you age gracefully. Women
    should start loking at Daniel Craig. He’s way hotter and a much better actor. Smarter and had more substance than George. Have seen both their interviews at You Tube and Daniel Craig is funnier, cuter and much more interesting! Too bad, George, you are no longer the Sexiest man alive. :(

  • rae

    He’s still sexy to me. And he wears a tux so well. I wonder why his whore wasn’t with him. I doubt she had anything more pressing to do. Maybe he got tired of her.

  • Didi

    #34 Daniel Craig is a w*nker and he’s made of plasticine, he’s also a shit actor and not even a quarter of the actor George is. DC pretty much ruined the Bond franchise. Gerard Butler would have made a much better and sexier Bond because he can actually act.

    As for Georgie Porgie well he just has the IT factor no matter how much he ages. Like Carry Grant and Robert Redford, he’s charming and timeless. In another words any woman would be lucky to be able to shag the pants off of him.

    I have met Daniel Craig and he is a rude arrogant man and has his head up his own a*se and frankly he can keep it there along with his play doh c*ck

  • Tiger

    I beg to differ belle.

    He is still sexiest man alive, more so as he ages.

    In my opinion, he was “perfection” last night at the Critics Choice Awards. He went to present Don with much deserved award and thought enough of his friend, he didn’t want it overshadowed with his personal drama. I found him extremely nobel at that event and so very handsome.

    When he was presenting Don with his award, I thought to myself, if that man was President, imagine how much fun watching politics would be. :-)

    George has a charisma with the camera that overshadows everyone else in the room. But, he put it on dim last night and let Don shine. Loved it on George. And bonus round for Don, because he “owned” the room. As he should of.

  • Diane

    I think George is nice looking when he is dressed up but when he has a beard not so much

  • Tiger

    Not me, I love his beard. Course scruffy in it’s first week of growth is my personal favorite. But, I like the full beard on him as well. Can’t wait to see him in Burn After Reading with his scruffy appearence.

    I was watching The Perfect Storm the other day and he wore scruffy in that movie. I find it very attractive on him.

  • just me

    He is the HOTTEST thing in Hollywood for years! A real man. And, like fine wine, he just gets better with age!!! Love him !!!!!!!!!!!

  • TiredofthisCrap

    Well Tiger, in my opinion, George Clooney owed Don Cheadle one. The Nobel Laureates were so overshadowed by George’s personal problem, that Don Cheadle was practically overlooked. Kudos for George Clooney for not letting the personal problem take over this event for his friend.

  • Tiger

    I agree TiredofthisCrap. I wanted to give him a good swift kick in the butt at the Nobel Laureates when he showed up with his personal drama and over shaowdowed Don completely. I am thrilled he was man enough to make it right.

  • Maritza

    George I think it’s time you start getting botox injections, you are looking old!!
