The ac­tor, writer, direc­tor and pro­ducer be­came the 46th re­cip­i­ent of the Amer­i­can Film In­sti­tute’s life­time achieve­ment award at a gala din­ner at Los An­ge­les’ Dolby The­atre

Ge­orge and Amal looked on as his dad, broad­cast jour­nal­ist Nick Clooney, in­tro­duced the two-time Os­car win­ner as “a man of the movies and a cit­i­zen of the world”.

The award was sup­posed to be pre­sented by long-time pal Ju­lia Roberts but due to a sched­ul­ing con­flict she couldn’t make it. Ac­tress Shirley MacLaine, who re­ceived the AFI hon­our in 2012, stepped in, jok­ing, “I’m the one who goes on when the star has a prob­lem.”

1 Ac­tress Anna Kendrick, in an asym­met­ri­cal Ralph & Russo dress, was on hand to help hon­our her Up in the Air co-star. 2 Ge­orge’s ER co-star Julianna Mar­gulies also joined in the cel­e­bra­tions. 3 Friends stars Courteney Cox and Jennifer Anis­ton joked the only rea­son Ge­orge’s career took off was be­cause fans who tuned in to watch their hit sit­com back in the day were too lazy to change the chan­nel when ER came on. 4 Just Get­ting Started ac­tress Jane Sey­mour looked half her age in a fig­ure-hug­ging Jo­vani dress. 5 Busi­ness­man Rande Ger­ber – a close friend of Ge­orge’s – with his wife, su­per­model Cindy Craw­ford, who was ra­di­ant in white. Af­ter co­found­ing te­quila brand Casami­gos in 2013, Ge­orge and Rande sold it to Euro­pean bev­er­age com­pany Di­a­geo for $1 bil­lion (then R12,5 bil­lion) last year. 6 Os­car win­ner Cate Blanchett, who worked with Ge­orge in The Good Ger­man and The Mon­u­ments Men, looked edgy in a faux­tat­too-sleeved num­ber by Yacine Aouadi.
