Winner: George Clooney, multi-threat
"Ides of March" may not have been the Oscar frontrunner some were predicting, but it still earned George Clooney his second career Oscar nomination for writing, while "The Descendants" delivered his fourth acting nomination. In addition, Clooney will show up on the red carpet with Stacey Keibler. As a rule, we suspect that life is pretty good for George Clooney.
