George Clooney appropriately humble accepting Humanitarian award during Emmys

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Where has George Clooney been?

The Hollywood A-lister has been taken to task on other movie gossip sites for failing to heavily promote “The American,” which opens this Wednesday. Yet I seem to recall a magazine interview Clooney did where he said he was done with the movie marketing game, as he felt it didn’t help his directorial effort, “Leatherheads,” and he kind of said all he needed to say in previous interviews.

So it was a pleasant surprise seeing him at the Emmys last night in various forms. His clever spot with the cast of “Modern Family” was dubbed the highlight of the night by many television critics in their post Emmy wrap up. And later in the evening, Clooney collected yet another statue for his mantle – this one for his humanitarian efforts.

“It’s important to remember how much good can get done because we live in such strange times where bad behavior sucks up all of the attention and the press,” Clooney said during his brief speech.

The Bob Hope Humanitarian Award was created in 2002 in memory of the late entertainer. Oprah Winfrey and Bill Cosby are just a few previous winners.

As for “The American,” I’m on my way to see it right now. Hopes are high. I’ll have more to report on Wednesday, when the movie opens.
