Red carpet: George Clooney at the Academy Awards

March 7, 2010 |  6:17 pm

If you've ever wondered what it's like to be George Clooney as he walks the red carpet at the Academy Oscars-George-Clooney Awards, here's a taste: Cameras flashing, gorgeous date dressed in red on your arm, people screaming your name.

The poise. The charm. The smile. And he even seems to be having a good time.

"Yes, I'm excited to be here," he says.

We're excited too.
