Best Supporting Actor goes to…
I was spot on and it’s really no surprise since he had already bagged so many awards for his performance as a tired CIA agent on a mission in the Middle East. Upon winning the first first award of the night and his first ever Oscar win, Clooney joked that he’s not going to win the director award now that he won the Oscar for best supporting actor.
The dashing, talented actor also paid tribute to the academy and its achievements over the years in championing noble causes, including giving an Oscar to the first ever black actress, Hattie McDaniel when black people still had to sit at the back of theatres.
I am proud that Clooney won this, because I don’t think anyone else deserves it more than he does.
