WATCH VIDEO – George Clooney Celebrates Wife Amal In Golden Globes Speech: I Waited My “Whole Life” For You
After being introduced with a clip celebrating his career, Clooney noted, “After coming here for several years and having lost a great ‑‑ much more than I’ve won, you start so see a pattern that happens on nights like this. All right. So you’re on your way in. You’re at the red carpet, and you’re a nominee. Everybody’s congratulating you. You’re on top of the world, literally everybody. And then within a couple of hours, four out of the five of you don’t win. Literally, 80 percent of the people in this room don’t win, and then you are a loser.”
He continued, “And I’m telling you, you go to the after parties. Nobody will look you in the eyes. You go to work the next day, and a guy in the crew comes over and like, ‘I’m sorry, pal. You’ll get them next time.’ For the record, if you are in this room, you’ve caught the brass ring… You get to do what you’ve always dreamed to do and be celebrated for it, and that just ‑‑ it ain’t losing.”
Clooney later said, “I’ve had a pretty good year myself… it’s a humbling thing when you find someone to love. Even better when you’ve been waiting your whole life, and when your whole life is 53 years… Amal, whatever alchemy it is that brought us together, I couldn’t be more proud to be your husband.” Watch the video below, and tell us what you think.
