“I know what pisses people off about fame. It’s when famous people whine about it.” – George Clooney

George Clooney swears he has never lost an Oscar pool. These are his picks for this year’s awards, stolen from professional nerd Joel Stein’s profile of the Cloon in Time. We’ll be sure to check with George to see how much he won when we see him at his annual after show bash at Dan Tana’s.

“You see him and you think, Wouldn’t that be a great life? He seems like a man’s man. He seems like you could meet him at a bar and have a chat with him and it would be easy. And all of that is true.” Sid Ganis, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

“As they say in England, he is up for it,” says Michael Clayton co-star Tilda Swinton. “That means up for pretty much any fun you can think of. He has a way of daring you—which, for those of us who cannot resist a bit of a laugh, can be irresistible.”

Clooney says, “Clark Gable wouldn’t have been Clark Gable if there was Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight.”
