George Clooney is America's leading man, a modern-day icon who combines the glamour of a time gone by with a ferocious passion for ensuring that art's impact echoes beyond the screen. His is a presence bigger even than his extraordinary movies. Clooney's work is undeniable - with eight Academy Award® nominations across more categories than any living individual in the awards' history, including two wins. With a lifelong desire to give back instilled in him by his father, Clooney has also put his influence toward a greater good. He has been as much a champion for human rights, and the planet, as he has been for the art form. For the indelible characters he has created on screen, and for the power of his public spirit and philanthropy, the American Film Institute salutes George Clooney - icon, luminary and ultimate leading man - with the 46th AFI Life Achievement Award.
