"I had a pretty good year myself and I'm not just referring to the fabulous reviews of The Monuments Men," said Clooney. "It's a humbling thing when you find someone to love. Even better when you've been waiting your whole life... Amal, whatever alchemy brought us together, I couldn't be prouder to be your husband."
Clooney accepted the award from Julianna Margulies and Don Cheadle in the tuxedo he wore for his wedding to the international human rights attorney.

“Amal is a human-rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, an advisor to Kofi Annan regarding Syria and was selected for a three-person UN commission investigating rules-of-war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award,” said Fey.
