Laurent Koffel /

George Clooney will receive the 46th American Film Institutes Life Achievement Award. The gala for the presentation will be in L.A. on June 7th. 2018.  TNT will broadcast the event at a later date. Clooney’s first regular acting gig came with the sitcom “The Facts of Life,” from 1985-87.  In 1988 he began work on the sitcom, “Rosanne,” where he played Booker, a supervisor at the plastic factory in Langford.

His breakout role came when he landed the part of Dr. Doug Ross, on the television drama E.R.  And this is where I fell madly in love with George.  What woman in North America didn’t? We watched every week to see if he and his true love, Dr. Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) would ever be together?  He managed to juggle his schedule on E.R. and made movies until 1999 but consequently, he decided to hang up his stethoscope and pursued a full-time movie career.

Clooney’s movie career is extensive.  He won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in “Syriana,” He received Oscar nominations for “Michael Clayton,” “Up in The Air,” and “The Descendants.”  As a producer, George won the “Best Picture,” award for “Argo.”  Most noteworthy his is only one of two people to be nominated for 6 academy awards in different categories.  An honor he shares with the great Walt Disney.
