Video: George Clooney Wants a "Sash" For His Win With Stacy Keibler by His Side

PopSugar / January 7, 2012 6:30 pm

A dapper George Clooney stopped to talk to us on his way inside the Palm Springs Film Festival this evening. The Chairman's Award honoree joked that he wants a sash to come with his award. Tonight's trophy may be one of the first of many for him, as George has garnered multiple nominations this award season. He's even up against good pal Brad Pitt, who George said he's looking forward to seeing tonight. Check out our full chat with Mr. Clooney now!

Please can you help me? As there will be many more articles and pictures, please could everyone post the articles (not just the links) and videos in their posts? Videos are so ridiculously easy to put in a post (find where it says 'embed' copy the code then paste the code into your message). Thanks

Impressive - another award. Nice.

This reminds me of when 'someone I used to know' worked at a non-profit and every year they had an 'award's night' whereby they invited noteworthy's of the community and gave them a cheap printed award of blah. The finishing touch of course was an official looking seal which came with it's own package of gold leafed paper from the local stationary store - and sometimes a little piece of cheap artwork too. LOL. blah blah blah...

Moral of this story....it probably don't mean a thing - they just want him there.

PALM SPRINGS FILM FEST: George Clooney a fan of Palm Springs

BY VANESSA FRANKO

Published: 07 January 2012 06:44 PM

OMG I talked to George Clooney.

I might have Tweeted that earlier. I didn’t get a chance to tell him how much I loved him in the later years of “The Facts of Life,” but I did get him to admit to supporting the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL playoffs now that his Cincinnati Bengals were eliminated Saturday, well, his girlfriend Stacy Keibler, a Baltimore native like myself, helped push him in that direction.

Clooney, who is receiving the Chairman’s Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala tonight, was a favorite of fans and the media.

A few quick points:

-Yes, he is that attractive in person.

-He might be the most charming person (Hollywood actor or otherwise) who I have ever met.

-And now that his beloved Cincinnati Bengals were eliminated, he’s cheering on my favorite football team.

I love this job.

The actor, who had both “The Ides of March” and “The Descendants” see release this year, said he has been to Palm Springs many times to golf and drink. However, he didn’t have any favorite bars, but thought that Jerry Weintraub would be following him around with a bottle of Scotch later this evening.

Weintraub said Clooney would be disappointed—he only brought vodka

PALM SPRINGS: George Clooney charms film festival audience

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
George Clooney, seen at the premiere of "The Ides of March" in Beverly Hills, says “ER’s huge ratings defined his career. “That’s lifechanging, and that’s luck," Clooney said during a Q & A at the Palm Springs Film Festival. "It has nothing to do with me.”

BY FIELDING BUCK

STAFF WRITER

Published: 07 January 2012

If anyone had any doubt, George Clooney proved that he is charming, funny and able to tell a joke on himself Saturday at a screening of his recent film “The Ides of March.”

It was the first of two appearances in Palm Springs for the actor/director. This evening, he will be honored at the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s annual awards gala.

Clooney dressed casually for the screening, dubbed “Talking Pictures.” For 40 minutes, he was interviewed by journalist John Horn and then took questions from the audience.

He wore faded jeans and a T-shirt under a sports jacket with sunglasses hooked in the pocket.

Clooney was modest about his career, calling himself a “journeyman actor” until the TV series “ER” became an enormous hit in the mid-1990s.

He said that “ER’s huge ratings defined his career.

“That’s lifechanging, and that’s luck. It has nothing to do with me.”

Clooney has enormous Oscar buzz for his role in Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants.” He said the script challenged him as an actor. “It’s not something that’s usually in my wheelhouse or something that I was comfortable with. But it’s something I could do.”

When asked whether he prefers directing to acting, he said, “Acting is definitely more creative. Acting is using one of the paints in the set. Directing is using of all of them.”

He attributed to the way he has managed his career to learning from his late aunt, the singer Rosemary Clooney.

He said he wants to use his clout in Hollywood to make films that are hard to get made “until they take all the toys away and make me go back to dinner theater.”

When an audience member asked if he had any advice to people getting into show business, he said, “Don’t mix grain and grape. That was my Aunt Rosemary.”

I am trying to watch this awards ceremony live and it's like watching a friggin commercial for Palm Springs. And for God's sake don't forget your ticket to the after party. Get over it already!! Do they think the audience didn't hear them the first time around or is that to make the people feel bad that don't have the ticket to get in? What a trip!!

Oh yeah, like George doesn't have his ticket for the after party so they won't let him in. I bet there is a major exception to that rule. Just had a funny thought, my bet Stacy doesn't get in without a ticket. Maybe that is why they were so specific in saying it twice, it's a sign George doesn't want Stacy at the after party. I know, I'm reaching but it is so much fun and gives me the giggles. Oh man, now the band has to perform, it's like watching a festival in Mayberry. Laughing

George Clooney: Palm Springs Film Festival with Stacy Keibler!

George Clooney and his girlfriend Stacy Keibler walk the red carpet at the 23rd Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala held at the Palm Springs Convention Center on Saturday (January 7) in Palm Springs, Calif.

The 50-year-old actor received the Chairman’s Award for his work in both The Descendants and The Ides of March. He was presented the award by his Descendants co-star Shailene Woodley and Ides of March producer Grant Heslov.

Earlier in the day, George exited the back door of the Annenburg Auditorium after giving a lecture during the “Talking Picutres” event of the film festival.

FYI: Stacy is wearing an Alexander McQueen dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and one of a kind Dana Rebecca Designs earrings.

Seriously, Tigerina and Phys Major, this is a George Clooney fan forum, not a Stacy Keibler one. Do you guys have anything to say about him? All these photos of him, TV interviews with him, written reports of him at palm springs, tweets about him and all you want to talk about is . . . his girlfriend??

If she says or does something NOTABLE then let's talk about it (maybe on the Stacy Keibler thread?) but unless I've missed something, all she's done is stand next to him in photos.

I think George looks good but I do wonder why he has bags under his eyes after such a long vacation. Nice suit and he will no doubt meet up with Brad. Guess we will be seeing pictures of them all together. Going to say something about Stacy over in her thread!

George Clooney and girlfriend Stacy Keibler were also spotted at the event.
Dwarfing George: Stacy Keibler and George Clooney also attended the event and the former wrestler looked much taller than the actor thanks to her quiff in her hair

Dwarfing George: Stacy Keibler and George Clooney also attended the event and the former wrestler looked much taller than the actor thanks to her quiff in her hair

By George! The actor signed autographs and posed for pictures with his hoards of female fans


Look what I got: George was seen accepting the Chairman Award and looked happy to do so



The former wrestler looked lovely in a simple black dress with plunging neckline and a golden tan, thanks to the couple's recent break in Mexico.

But Stacy's quiff in her hair made her look much taller than her man and George was left dwarfed as he stood next to his girlfriend on the red carpet.

Just like Brad, George made time for the hoards of screaming female fans and happily posed for photos and signed autographs as he made his way into the event.

Same here. There's either an issue with their code or this forum isn't compatible with their coding. Defeated by technology once again.

Aww Grant looks good. Not keen on the girl with hims dress it's well sortof ugly and way too old for someone so young. I have to say it that award looks like a bong or something guys pee in. Is there a story behind the design? George looks happy when he is with his fans. I do find it funny that the story blames Stacy's hairstyle for her dwarfing George, umm should check out the shoes too!

Palm Springs film festival gala honors stars

George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Glenn Close were among the dozens of stars honored at the Palm Springs Convention Center tonight during the Palm Springs film festival awards gala.

"George, I'm single," actress Octavia Spencer quipped, showing some love for Chairman's Award winner Clooney as she accepted the Breakthrough Performance Award for her role in "The Help."

Tom Hanks and Thomas Horn presented Stephen Daldry with the Director of the Year honor for "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," and composer Howard Shore has been honored with his second Frederick Loewe music award.

"It's wonderful to be back," Shore told emcee Mary Hart backstage.

Shore is being honored for the score he composed for "Hugo."

"For me, composition is ... a way to take things that I love and express them through music," Shore said as he accepted the award.

The Palm Springs film festival gala attracts A-list stars not just to receive awards but also to present them, and the choice of presenters can hit home for gala honorees.

"Al put me in my first film," Chastain said after receiving the Spotlight Award from Al Pacino. "He always believed in me whenever my films would get stalled or whatever. He's my greatest teacher."

The gala, which isn't aired on broadcast or cable television, is known for its off-the-cuff quips.

Patton Oswalt continued that tradition as he explained why he was nominated as the spokesman for a four-person ensemble while his "Young Adult" co-star, director and screenwriter stood by: "The Vanguard Award winners are the drunkest of all tonight."

During his remarks, co-star Charlize Theron walked over with a message for the spokesman to pass along.

"She's really awesome. She's really nice," Oswalt said. "And she did not hit me with a rolled up copy of Rolling Stone when I mentioned 'Aeon Flux.'"

Next on the stage was Adrien Brody, who asked the audience to consider what cinema would be without Gary Coleman — before correcting himself and naming International Star Award winner Gary Oldman.

"I just had to see if you were paying attention," Brody joked.

Later in the gala, Desert Palm Achievement Award honoree Michelle Williams shared a piece of showbiz advice she didn't follow — changing her name to something with alliteration, like Michelle Montana or Michelle Montaña. "I always think, 'I came this close to being a porn star,'" she quipped.

While introducing Brad Pitt, fellow actor Jonah Hill got some laughs by quickly summing up "Moneyball," which both actors appeared in, but struggling to explain the other film Pitt is being honored for, "The Tree of Life."

"I'm sorry," Hill said. "I've seen it three times, and I still don't know what it's about."

Other stars got a little emotional as they took the stage.

"When I watch a clip reel like that, I cried a little bit," actress Glenn Close said as she accepted the Career Achievement award.

But soon, she was indulging the audience with a Cruella De Vil-style laugh, harking back to her performance in "101 Dalmatians."

Accepting the final honor of the night , Clooney struck an appreciative tone.

"You don't have to do this for us," he said as he accepted the Chairman's Award. "We really do love what we do. ... We really do understand that we're very blessed and we're very lucky to be doing this."

Clooney mentioned the humanitarian work of some of the actors in attendance and also thanked studios.

"The truth is — and we don't really want to tell all those guys — we'd do this for free," he said.

The gala also included a tribute to the late Jackie Lee Houston, a longtime valley philanthropist who supported the festival.

“Jackie Lee Houston will always be with us,” Hart said.

George's acceptance speech:

George goes to the stage, hugs Grant, takes the award, then walks to the podium.

"Aaah, nice! It really is a bong! [audience laughs] You were right, it is a bong, I didn't know.

"Thanks for this [he waves the award]

"Shailen - by the way unbelievably talented actress [he turns and points at her] - now you have to promise us that in 20 years when you're running the town you'll hire some poor, scraggly, beat up, old, retired two - times sexiest man alive for a job [everyone laughs]

"Then after you've hired Brad, maybe you'll give me a job too!

[audience get the joke, laugh. George looks up at them] "Oh, I'm sorry [chuckles to himself]

"You know, Grant and I first met when - actually I believe I was Shailene's age when we first met - yes, I was Shailene's age once - and, er, we were both broke and doing a play, some crappy play off of Melrose (?) and Grant got a job on Joanie loves Chachi, right [he turns to check with Grant], a guest shot, and he got some money and he loaned me 100 bucks to get head shots - which i'm still using [audience laughs]

"Listen, you know, um, I was just listening to everyone who's been up here tonight, listening just to Glenn talking up here tonight about how much she loves what she does [taps award on the side of his head]. The truth is, um, that's sort of the point. You know, um, you don't really have to do this for us, we really do love what we do.

"We also recognise that most people don't get to love their jobs,um, I've had a lot of 'fun' jobs, I've cut tobacco for a living, and I've sold insurance door to door and I sold men's suits and I sold ladies' shoes - by the way, dear God, what's wrong with women and their feet? [audience laughs] Honest to God "that's a six" and you're like "that's a nine!" [he pauses as the audience laughs] I don't understand that, it makes no sense. Guys go "that's an eleven or a twelve, I don't care I'll wear more socks" we don't care

"THe point - you didn't think I'd go there - the thing is we really do understnad that we're blessed and very lucky to be doing this. And it's not just about acting, per se, I mean you look at Brad and he's not just terrific in Moneyball, he's terrific in Tree of Life, he - it's not just about that though [mumble] it's about looking after the other people in the world and he builds homes in New Orleans for people who need a break [audience cheer]

"and you look at Glenn and she's fought for years to get this one movie made, this story on top of all the other things she's done and she's loved every minute of it and she's got it made, she's gets to be here tonight and she loves it

"and Gary Oldman: I don't know what other things you do, but just keep on acting brother because you [swear word bleeped out] it up for the rest of us, I tell ya [audience laugh] you are somethin' else!

"But you love it and we love what we do, and, and so what I suppose we'd like to say is, you know, thank you to Sony for doing Ides of March and thank you to Fox Searchlight for doing the Descendants and taking chances on these films

"But the truth is, and we don't really wanna tell all those guys is that we'd do this for free we like it so much. It's a fun thing to do, and most people don't get it.

"And to stand up here and get an award and be treated as nicely as you have all treated us all tonight, is icing on the cake and I cannot thank you enough and I think I speak for all of us to say thank you to the Palm Springs international film festival and thank all of you for coming out tonight and thank you for making it a great night for all of us. thank you!"

Katiedot wrote:Seriously, Tigerina and Phys Major, this is a George Clooney fan forum, not a Stacy Keibler one. Do you guys have anything to say about him? All these photos of him, TV interviews with him, written reports of him at palm springs, tweets about him and all you want to talk about is . . . his girlfriend??

If she says or does something NOTABLE then let's talk about it (maybe on the Stacy Keibler thread?) but unless I've missed something, all she's done is stand next to him in photos.

Whatvever Katiedot. I haven't mentioned her once since coming to this forum and the one lttle thing I say, you jump on it. I don't contribute at forums where there is censorship and don't speak to me like I am some 2 year old. Of course I know this is a Clooney forum. All I did was comment on the photo with an honest opinion. From you not even the respect of putting your complaint in a pm. If you expect the people posting here to respect your wishes you could start by respecting the people who contribute to it. It's your forum, do what you want with it. I can walk away easily and wait for someone to open a forum where freedom of speech is encouraged. Later and peace Katiedot. Gotta dash

I have to say it that award looks like a bong or something guys pee in. Is there a story behind the design? George looks happy when he is with his fans. I do find it funny that the story blames Stacy's hairstyle for her dwarfing George, umm should check out the shoes too!

LoL! I was thinking the award looks like one of those glass hummingbird feeders.

G looks good. Thumbs up!
