Women around the world swooned at George Clooney's remarks for his new bride, Amal Clooney, while accepting his Lifetime Achievement Award at the 72nd Golden Globes ceremony Sunday.

"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.

In a hilarious moment among many, hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, commented on the famous couple's wedding during their opening bit, highlighting Amal's accomplishments and Clooney's award.

“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.

Clooney, 53, has been nominated for a Golden Globe 13 times and has won three other Golden Globes – for his work in 2000's O Brother, Where Art Thou?, 2005's Syriana and 2011's The Descendants.
