Clooney was nominated for his first Golden Globe in 1996 for his performance as a doctor on medical drama ER. He later won Golden Globes for his performances in 2001’s O Brother, Where Art Thou?, 2006’s Syriana (this role also won him an Oscar), and 2011’s The Descendants.

The actor-director-writer-producer will receive the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s career honor during the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards on January 11. George Clooney already has four Globes to his credit — all in different categories: Best Actor in a Drama for The Descendants (2011), Best Supporting Actor for Syriana (2005) and Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical for O Brother, Where Art Thou (2000). He also won for his breakout role in ER. “The HFPA is honored to bestow the Cecil B. DeMille Award to George Clooney to celebrate his outstanding contributions both in front of and behind the camera,” said HFPA president Theo Kingma. Clooney most recently appeared in Gravity and The Monuments Men, the latter of which he also produced and directed. He next stars in Brad Bird’s sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland for Disney. Woody Allen received the 2014 honor. He was his typical no-show and his Annie Hall co-star Diane Keaton accepted for him. »

George Clooney's latest film "The Monuments Men" may have turned out to be an awards season bust (I still quite liked what he tried to do with that picture), but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a place in the season. Courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, he'll need to dust off the tux and head to the Beverly Hilton for the Golden Globes in January because he's this year's recipient of the organization's Cecil B. DeMille Award. Previous recipients of the prize, awarded for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment" (but generally perceived as a lifetime achievement honor of sorts), include Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese. The first annual honoree was DeMille himself in 1952, followed by the likes of Walt Disney, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, James Stewart, John Wayne and on and on. Clooney has always been »

Clooney, a four-time Golden Globe winner, has been nominated 13 times by the HFPA in his illustrious career and is also a two-time Academy Award winner, most recently as producer of the 2013 best picture winner “Argo.”
He has appeared in over 40 films and TV shows since cementing his star status with the 90s TV drama “E.R.” before moving on to pursue a career in film. To date, the Lexington, Ky.-born multi-hyphenate has directed five features, including “Good Night and Good Luck,” “The Ides of March” and “The Monuments Men.”
“I grew up in a family of storytellers,” he recently told Variety. »

As “The Simpsons’ ” gruff barkeep Moe Szyslak — and several other Springfieldians — Hank Azaria has been a part of the longest-running American TV show almost since its inception. He’s now wrapping a run in quite a different role, as the overly ambitious head of the L.A. division of the FBI on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan.” In fact, it was a part as an FBI agent in the 1988 TV film “Nitti: The Story of Frank Nitti, the Enforcer” that landed him his first Variety credit.
What do you recall of the movie?
I remember being tremendously excited that I was going to be on television. I think it was actually the second job I ever got, but it was the first thing to actually air.
Do you remember the first time you did see your name in Variety?
I definitely remember the first time I was like a story. The »

Is Downton Abbey welcoming Hollywood royalty? Kind of! After taking Hollywood by storm, starring in countless huge blockbuster films and becoming one of the biggest names in the biz, ER alum George Clooney is going back to his roots to appear on fan-favorite drama Downton Abbey...but there's a catch! E! News has learned that Clooney will guest-star in a Downton Abbey sketch scene for ITV's Christmas charity initiative "Text Santa," which will be set in Highclere Castle, the setting for Downton Abbey. While it would be absolutely incredible to see Clooney show up in an actual episode of Downton Abbey, this is purely a standalone film to support the charity. We are told he will not »
According to Us Weekly, the couple got caught in a storm in Chicago's Erickson Woods around 3 p.m. That's when Glynn, 46, and her bike crashed after a tree uprooted and hit her. The actress died in Evanston Hospital on Saturday, Sept. 6, due to her injuries.
News: Inside Joan Rivers' Funeral
Glynn's husband has made several Facebook posts following his wife's death, his first one reading: "Friends, this is the darkest day of my life. Things will never be the same. Molly got hit by a falling tree while we were biking. At hospital now. Prognosis is grim."
He added: "I couldn't save her. I couldn't save her. She's gone."
We’ve been looking back all week at the hugely influential 1994–95 network-television season, which found new shows Friends and ER hobnobbing on the same schedule with Seinfeld, The Simpsons, and The X-Files. We’ve counted down the season’s 100 best episodes, presented an oral history of the first season of Party of Five, tested your Friends knowledge with an Sat-style exam, and so much more. But right now we are in the middle of our My So-Called Life Power Hour and it’s time to talk to Wilson Cruz, who played Angela Chase’s pal Rickie Vasquez.When My So-Called Life premiered, there was no one on TV like Rickie Vasquez. Played by Wilson Cruz, Rickie was a step apart from everyone else onscreen: an Lgbt teenager of color with a Technicolor wardrobe, hair rising three inches above his head, and eyeliner that could ward off evil spirits, but he »

Welcome to the final day of our survey of the hugely influential 1994–95 network-television season, which found Friends, ER, and My So-Called Life hobnobbing on the same schedule with Seinfeld, The Simpsons, and The X-Files. We’ve counted down the season’s 100 best episodes, presented an oral history of the first season of Party of Five, heard crazy tales from the season-three writers' room of Melrose Place; talked to the NBC executives behind Must-See TV Thursday, and much more. Up now: an examination of how George Clooney’s celebrity ballooned after ER debuted on September 19, 1994.Before George Clooney landed the role of Dr. Doug Ross on NBC’s ER, the actor, then 33 going into the fall season, was known primarily for his stints on Roseanne, Facts of Life, and Sisters. Closer TV-watchers knew that he’d also suffered through a string of misses over the previous decade, in stuff like Baby Talk, »

There are few types of obsessed fan that go to the extent that wrestling fans do to show their appreciate for the bastard art of professional wrestling.
Part of that is due to the nature of the form itself: as a live event, the audience is as much a part of the story as the action happening in the ring, and a hot crowd can turn a fine technical match into a hugely dramatic ‘big fight’ spectacular. We’re the reason they’re there, after all.
George Clooney used to compare his pre-Hollywood fame to his post-movie career fame: when he was on ER, people came up to him in the street, grabbing him or slapping him on the back and treating him like an old friend or hated foe, because he was in their living rooms the same time every week for months out of every year. »

2.10 The Fall
A moment’s silence please, to mark the passing of Phil Bushey, whose leap of faith landed him not on the soft rubber of the Zenith children’s playground but on the sharp end of a massive pointy rock. Rest in peace Phil - you may have spent your final days creeping about Chester’s Mill like the most arbitrary of arbitrary Scooby Doo villains but we’ll always remember you as the gambling addict, town sheriff, Skeeter Davis-loving DJ that none of the writers knew what to do with that you really were.
Morris will play Ryan, the teacher who replaces Jess in the classroom now that she’s vice principal of her school. Ryan is “distractingly handsome” and has a confidence and swagger that irks Jess… until — per EW.com, which first reported the casting — she starts to fall for him. »
The intriguing new show tells the tale of an extramarital affair from two different perspectives, that of West and Wilson’s characters. How their memories of past events differ serves as the framework of the series, which can drastically help it stand apart from more conventional dramas on television.
While the new trailer doesn’t offer up many details about the show’s plot, it does illustrate how the perspectives of the leads will be communicated to the audience and effectively piques our interest.
West and Wilson are joined by ER actress Maura Tierney and Fringe alum Joshua Jackson, who play their respective wronged spouses. Created by Hagai Levi (In Treatment) and Sarah Treem (House of Cards), The Affair debuts on October 12th, »

Since its debut in 1989, across 552 episodes and 25 seasons, The Simpsons has become one of the most revered and beloved TV programmes of all time. It’s a true cultural phenomenon that’s influenced not just animation, but all areas of TV comedy and sitcom. For so many of us, its quotes and catchphrases have permeated our everyday vernacular, from single words like “crisitunity” and “embiggen” to phrases “you don’t win friends with salad” and “everything’s coming up Milhouse.”
Personal opinions may vary, but for me the show’s peak years were from season 4 through to 10. They’re consistently funny, all killer and no filler runs with barely a dud episode to be found between 1992-1998. Past this point the standard becomes a little more mixed, and recent seasons have been distinctly average at best. The »
What do you suppose Sarah Silverman meant by the bizarre remark in her Emmy acceptance speech Sunday night that we're all made of molecules hurtling through space? Maybe it was an oblique reference to television itself, which is now less a medium than a disembodied signal that we watch at a time and place of our own choosing. On some level, the creators of TV seem to realize that their medium is heading into a future that's even less shackled to the living room screen and the three hours after dinner than ever. And yet, watching last night's 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, one felt a sense of déjà vu, of watching a medium celebrate its ties to its own past. We'd seen many of the honorees picking up trophies before, and maybe we'd even heard the same jokes and patter before.
Seth Meyers could win the Emmy for Best Awards »

For the second year running and for its final season, Breaking Bad won Outstanding Drama Series at the 66th Annual Emmy Awards. It virtually swept the awards in an especially stacked year, also picking up awards for Best Actor Bryan Cranston, Best Supporting Actress Anna Gunn, Best Supporting Actor Aaron Paul, and Best Writing for Moira Walley-Becket for the episode “Ozymandias”.
Only new HBO drama True Detective swiped a major award away from the AMC smash, when Cary Joji Fukunaga (also of films Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre) picked up the award for Best Directing. The other major award went to Julianna Marguiles for Best Actress in a Drama for her show The Good Wife, making this her second Emmy for The Good Wife and third overall (ER).

“NBC decided to hold the Emmys a month earlier, in August,” began host Seth Meyers, about a third of the way through his opening monologue, “to avoid conflicting with Sunday Night Football. Which is keeping with the actors’ tradition of running away from jocks.”
Then he continued, aptly considering the muted response, “Jokes are like nominees: They can’t all be winners.”
That’s certainly true, though Meyers had a decent enough success rate during the evening. These were the best lines of the lot.

Never again, TV Academy. Never again. I don't care if NBC has to do the Emmys in August because of football and if NBC is scared of going head-to-head with a competing award show. Doing the Emmys on Monday is just wrong. But we shall trudge on! Seth Meyers is hosting. Some fantastic TV shows and actors are nominated. Follow along. Comment below. Join the fun. Make the fun. 8:00 p.m. Et. That was some of the worst Red Carpet pre-show I've ever watched between E! and NBC. I never thought I'd miss Ryan Seacrest, but there ya go! 8:00 p.m. Seth Meyers was just outside being interviewed by Billy Bush just two minutes ago. How will he make it inside? How?!?!? 8:00 p.m. A countdown! 20 seconds to go. 8:00 p.m. And now Seth is inside on-stage. How Is That Possible, Billy Bush?!? 8:01 p.m. »

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?
While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.
Claire Danes (Angela Chase)
After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »
