A really nice and well deserved honor for George.  I'm betting that the family will be in LA for this event ... and the little ones' birthdays.

George Clooney to Receive AFI Life Achievement Award
George Clooney will be the 46th recipient of the AFI Life Achievement Award.

The award, announced on Thursday, will be presented to Clooney on June 7 in Los Angeles. The ceremony will be broadcast subsequently by Turner Broadcasting on TNT, followed by encore presentations on Turner Classic Movies.

“George Clooney is America’s leading man,” said Howard Stringer, chairman of the American Film Institute Board of Trustees. “Director, producer, writer, and actor — a modern-day screen icon who combines the glamour of a time gone by with a ferocious passion for ensuring art’s impact echoes beyond the screen. AFI is proud to present him with its 46th Life Achievement Award.”

Clooney has won a best actor Academy Award for his role in “Syriana” and a best picture Oscar as a producer on “Argo.” He’s also received best actor Oscar nominations for “Michael Clayton,” “Up in the Air,” and “The Descendants”; directing and screenplay nods for “Good Night, and Good Luck”; and a screenplay nom for “The Ides of March.”
Clooney received the American Cinematheque Award in 2006. In 2010, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences honored him with the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award in recognition of his philanthropic efforts.

Recent recipients of the AFI Life Achievement Award include Mel Brooks, Jane Fonda, Steve Martin, John Williams, and Diane Keaton.
