    The George Clooney and Stacy Keibler love train is crisscrossing the globe.

    Not long after they went public with their first red carpet stroll in New York City at the premiere of The Descendants, they were at it again in Paris for the Ides of March.

    And just last night, they were the main attraction at the Hollywood Film Awards presented by Starz, where Mr. Clooney told the packed house that he was a very "lucky" guy.

    How so? Read on for the details...

    "I was lucky enough to have a hospital show that was on Thursday nights at 10," he said after he was presented with the Hollywood Actor Award from his Descendants costar Beau Bridges. "That changed my career. Forty million people a week. That's a lot."

    Clooney didn't feel as lucky standing at the podium last night because the ceremony was being shown on oversize monitors surrounding the stage. With cameras zooming in on presenters and honorees' faces, not a pore or blemish went unnoticed. "It's killing like 20-year-olds—I'm 50! Can't survive that!" Clooney cracked. "That's bulls--t!"

    Clooney and Keibler were as cozy as any couple could be. They skipped the red carpet but held court inside the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. At a table at the foot of the stage, they drank, laughed and shared a few kisses throughout the evening.

    After Clooney received his statuette, handlers quickly whisked Keibler backstage, where she joined Clooney in the greenroom before the silver fox returned to the stage to present the Hollywood Editor Award to Stephen Mirrione.

    Glenn Close picked up the night's Hollywood Career Achievement Award from her Damages costar Ted Danson. She praised the directors of photography, costumers and makeup and hair people who have helped her look "fabulous" in her dozens of movies. "Even though people come up to me on the street and say, 'Oh, wow! You look so much better in life than you do in film,'" said Close, who's getting the Oscar buzz going for her upcoming 19th-century cross-dressing drama Albert Nobbs. "I'm amazed that they think that's a compliment."

    Other award winners included the cast of The Help, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michelle Williams, Carey Mulligan, Christopher Plummer and Rango director Gore Verbinski. Anne Hathaway, a very-shaggy haired Ben Affleck, Matt Bomer, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Ewan McGregor were also some of the night's presenters.
