Gerorge Clooney @ 2007 National Board of Review Awards Gala
George Clooney and girlfriend Sarah Larson heat up the red carpet at The 2007 National Board of Review Awards Gala at Cipriani 42nd street on Tuesday in New York City.
The 46-year-old star picked up Best Actor for playing the title role in Michael Clayton. He also presented the Coen brothers with Best Picture of the Year for No Country for Old Men. Here’s People‘s funny report of how it went down:
“They can do anything,” Clooney said of director Joel, 53, and writer, Ethan, 50. Summarizing their filmography and the audience to whom their movies appeal, Clooney said, “For stoners, there’s The Big Lebowski … for funny, there’s Raising Arizona.”
Clooney also said that what was “most fun is, these guys hate [awards shows]. They are the worst you have ever seen at this. Watch when they get up here,” Clooney warned. “Ethan won’t talk. Joel will finally say, ‘Thanks, man,’ then just leave.”
Sure enough, came their brief time at the podium, Ethan didn’t talk, and Joel finally said, ‘Thanks, man’ â€“ and left.
This left Clooney to go back to his table and a smiling Larson, who gave him a look of approval and a pat on the shoulder.
