George Clooney

Sideways is a perfect film.  The more you watch it the more of itself it reveals.  It is a story of a greatly flawed man who clatters selfishly forward — his book, his breakup, his misery.  If he is given ...

Between Ides of March and The Descendants, George Clooney is theoretically in good shape for nominations in 5 Oscar categories this year.

A 50-50 proposition we can all get behind. Could the man behind the man be the man behind the curtain? Check out 8 new stills after the cut. UPDATE: full-size portrait format US poster added. (thanks Monica!)

Leave it to George Clooney to tell it like it is — they all know it’s dirty business, Oscar campaigning.  They all probably hate doing it.  But they know they have to do it.  It’s all about the business of ...

The Ides of March takes place during the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, when an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s shot ...

(Thanks to phantom, who proposes what looks to be an airtight formula: “Clooney + Payne + Fox Searchlight = Oscar Gold ?”)

Set pics have emerged for the SAG ensemble-friendly new Clooney pic (he directs and co-writes with Grant Heslov — Good Night, Good Luck collab) at ComingSoon (taken from the Oxford Press, Ohio). It is based on a play by Beau ...

Continuing to showcase The American as a vintage spy thriller, this featurette maintains the same gloss of prestige that we’ve seen carried through from the retro poster design. Even the timbre of the narration reminds me of the preview voice-overs ...

We did the ladies, now it’s time to focus on the men. With Get Low opening today with decent enough reviews — we have to look at the Best Actor race, and whether a vet like Robert Duvall, who gives ...

Our favorite photographer-turned-director, Anton Corbijn, posted more gorgeous shots of George Clooney on the set of the American.

Thanks to Kevin Klawitter for the tip. I wanted to read this book before the movie debuted, thinking it would be fun mindless summer thriller. Turns out it’s based on a more literary source than I expected — A Very ...

Focus Features just posted this shot of George Clooney running and shooting and looking tense for The American (a Fall release) directed by Anton Corbijn (Control). ¬†The director has a blog – I don’t know how this slipped under my ...

One of the strangest developments of last year’s Oscar, probably the thing that was most difficult to predict, was Jason Reitman’s loss for Adapted Screenplay. I have to say that this kind of thing rarely happens. I haven’t actually looked ...

Tom O’Neil was there and has video of the event. He apologizes about the quality, of course, but we’ll take what we can get and like it. You can check out all of the videos over at Gold Derby, courtesy ...

Thanks to Daveylow for the heads up – the New York Times has a whole section on the Oscars, it turns out. Manohla Dargis wrote up The Hurt Locker (below), AO Scott takes on Where the Wild Things Are, Stephen ...

Soldiers. A serious man. A great leader. A man up in the air. 2009 is, once again, the Year of the Man. Precious and An Education are two that aren’t. Ordinary women rarely take up much screen time. Nonetheless, Oscars ...

I think we’ve seen enough to begin estimating nominations, haven’t we? Is 10 the max? In order of likelihood:

This wikiHow article explains how to build a foxhole as “a strong defensive fighting position.” Metacritic provides attractive needlepoint blurbs for furnishing it. 100 – “a nonchalant masterpiece” — Stephanie Zacharek, Salon 100 – “virtuoso tomfoolery” — Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment ...

And again, not yet available on YouTube so I can’t embed it here, however Apple has it. In the clip, we are given a bit more of the story — George Clooney’s character is saving frequent flyer miles. “The miles ...
