George Clooney Was Joined by Dozens of A-List Celebs at Clooney Foundation Awards - See Every Photo!

George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney were joined by dozens of celebrity friends at the first-ever Albie Awards!

The power couple hosted the event in support of The Clooney Foundation for Justice on Thursday night (September 29) at the New York Public Library in New York City.

The Albie Awards honored courageous defenders of justice who are at great risk for what they do and the awards were named after Justice Albie Sachs, revered for his heroic commitment to ending apartheid in South Africa.

“We believe that justice must be waged — it doesn’t just happen. So when journalists are locked up just for doing their job, we try to get them out of prison. When young girls are denied the right to study, work, or marry when they want, we help them fight for their rights through the courts. When minorities are targeted for genocide, we help trigger trials against the perpetrators,” the Clooneys said in a statement. “The Albie Awards add a new dimension to our work at CFJ: they are a way to shine a protective light on the many courageous individuals who, at great personal risk, have devoted their lives to justice.”

So many stars were in attendance and there was great fashion on the red carpet!
