George Clooney Talks Oscar Buzz, Plays It VERY Cool!

george clooney talks oscar buzz and plays it cool

We were blown away by Ryan Gosling in Drive. We were fascinated with how interesting Brad Pitt made the game of baseball seem in Moneyball. And now…we're looking at you, George.

When attending the Closing Night Gala presentation of his new movie The Descendants at the 49th annual New York Film Festival, George Clooney was asked to comment on the Oscar buzz he's receiving.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"I've been in and out of that buzz many times in my life, and I've really gotten very good at not paying attention to things like that, because here's the funniest thing: I really like making the movies. That's really fun to do. I like directing them, I like acting in them when they work. And if people appreciate that, what really lasts is the movies. Really, truly, it's a funny thing. I don't remember who wins awards, I remember the movies when I see them. And that's what I like the most about it."

So modest! Between his starring role in The Descendants AND his directing/writing/starring role in The Ides of March, we'd say Mr. Clooney is likely to be nominated for a few awards AT LEAST!

We appreciate you not getting cocky, George, and we're glad that you're so passionate about film…but come on! You know you're at least A LITTLE excited about potentially snagging an Oscar or two! Admit it! LOLz!

What do U think? Will George Clooney be the big winner at this year's Academy Awards?

    George looks 10 years older than he is. Have you thanked Aunt Rosemary for making your name famous yet George? No. You are almost as self made as Donald Trump.

    it should be his turn he chooses the hard roles like in 'syriana' and other roles like 'michael clayton movie' he never shies from really getting in there with the gritty roles and even playful stuff like oceans 11 12 13 hes still very good so i would def like to see him in the oscars ..hes what u call a real actor .. men who stare at goats the whole idea was great but the movie lacked something .. but again george always shines thru as top class ill watch anything hes in even a 'strip movie' lolol ok side tracked but yes give the guy a goddam oscar he deserves it as for brad he wont get one as long as hes with 'the witch”

    You were impressed by Gosling's acting in that super sh!tty movie Drive? Really?
    What the fcuk is so impressive about standing around like a dumbass for 5 minutes and not saying anything when you are asked a question? The movie should have been called "Speak motherfcuker, say something goddamnit". He made Swarzenegger look like an eloquent bard.

    Drive, the movie for pretentious a$$holes to sit around and pretend they like it to make themselves cool, or for gay guys that want to jerk off to Ryan Goslin.
