George Clooney enjoys awards season

The 50-year-old star has been raking in the plaudits for his starring role in The Descendants, and is nominated for the Best Performance by an Actor category in this Sunday’s Golden Globes.

Nevertheless, George is said to insist on enjoying himself when the annual awards ceremony chaos comes around.

‘We tend to have parties away from where the other parties are because they’re a little more fun,’ he is reported to have said. ‘And usually the after parties are work. So it’s fun to go with your friends somewhere and just literally have a drink and have some fun.’

The Descendants has been nominated in an impressive total of five categories for the 69th Annual Golden Globes, trailing only The Artist.
