If there’s one man who really needs folks to come to his defense, it’s George Clooney. In some weird alternate universe, maybe. But anyway, we were a tiny bit surprised (but also nodding in half agreement), by what his Descendants co-star Judy Greer had to say about him losing the Oscar to Jean Dujardin. She was promoting her role in Jeff, Who Lives at Home, and though it was already weeks after the Oscars, we wanted to ask what she enjoyed most about the whirlwind of red carpets and interviews and fancy-dress parties that is awards season. And her answer was refreshingly frank.
“I thought I was going to say the Oscars were the highlight, but I was really disappointed that George didn’t win,” the Arrested Development alum told VH1 News. “I was disappointed that the movie didn’t win and Alexander as well, but I don’t know, I really thought George was going to win and thought he should have.”
Meow! Well, from what we could tell, the Descendants cast all grew very close on the set and during their publicity blitz, so we understand that kind of loyalty. We’re also thrilled that the movie brought attention to her talents (and those of her on-screen husband Matthew Lillard). Now we’re crossing her fingers that Greer’s pilot, American Judy, gets picked up for the fall. Maybe George can have a chat with ABC?
