He May Not Go Home With Oscar, But Everybody Loves George
Despite his recent Best Actor win at The Golden Globes, it looks very unlikely that George Clooney will take home an Oscar this Sunday. Nor should he. First of all, he's already got one, and second of all, a rumpled hair and an even more rumpled Hawaiian shirt does not an award-winning performance make. Jean Dujardin, the likely winner, worked his equally charming, handsome *ss off in The Artist and deserves all the accolades Hollywood can shower. It's funny that the race comes down to these two -- they're cut from the same insanely charismatic cloth. That's not to say Clooney is not a nimble and capable performer; we've seen both comedic and dramatic work from him. But his superstardom is not entirely due to talent. Hollywood, and the world, is in love with Cloons. Like Cary Grant before him, the man possesses an almost superhuman knack for grinning and wisecracking his way into our collective hearts. When mortals merely sweat, Clooney oozes charm. And even as he gets a little longer in the tooth, and his eyes become more crinkled than ever, George will still be our Favorite Star, if not our Best Actor. So here, in lieu of the usual arm candy he consorts with, are fellow fans of George. You might recognize a few.
