George Clooney: Putt It Away Mick
Clooney admires Fassbender’s gong

I’d like to thank Michael Fassbender for taking over the frontal nudity responsibility that I had

Hollywood star George Clooney joked on stage at the Golden Globes that Irish hunk Michael Fassbender could play golf with his manhood.

The pair were up against each other for the Best Actor award which Clooney won and on accepting his prize he couldn’t resist cracking a joke.

He said: “I’d like to thank Michael Fassbender for taking over the frontal nudity responsibility that I had. Michael, honestly, you could play golf like this with your hands behind your back. Go for it man, do it.”

The Kerryman was nominated for his performance as a sex-addict in the movie Shame but Clooney won the trophy for the movie The Dscendantes. Fassbender (34) plays a New York based sex addict in Shame which is directed by Steve McQueen.

Other Irish nominees Brendan Gleeson and Sinead O’Connor also failed to pick up any awards on the night. Gleeson (56) was nominated for Best Performance in a Comedy for his role in The Guard but the trophy was taken by Jean Dujardin (39) for The Artist.

The song Lay Your Head Down performed by Sinead O’Connor (44) for the film Albert Nobbs also received a prestigious nomination. But sadly it lost out to Madonna’s track Masterpiece for her movie W.E.

Icons of the big screen such as Brad Pitt (48), Angelina Jolie (36), George Clooney (50) and Nicole Kidman (44) wowed the crowds on the red carpet. Brit babe Kate Winslet (36), who gave Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio (37) a kiss for the cameras, took Best Actress in a Mini-series for her performance in HBO’s Mildred Pierce.

Elsewhere, black and white silent film The Artist was the big winner of the night taking gongs including Best Musical or Comedy and Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for Dujardin.

Meryl Streep (62) won Best Dramatic Actress for her portrayal of former UK prime minister Maggie Thatcher in the film The Iron Lady. The Lifetime Achievement award went to Invictus and Shawshank Redemption legend Morgan Freeman (74).
