Is There a Feud Between Alec Baldwin and George Clooney?

If you watched the Oscars on Television, you would notice that during the opening of the Academy Awards, hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin just “chatted” with each other on stage, greeted the celebrities that are present during the night and made some jokes about many things.  For the entire five to ten minutes that was just what they did.  They acknowledged the presence of other celebrities – almost all of them.

This included George Clooney.  Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin were going on with their greetings and all of a sudden Alec Baldwin said “Hey look, there’s George Clooney.”  Then Alec Baldwin paused and just stood there like he became a statue for a whole ten seconds with a half-grin on his face.  The camera then focused on George Clooney and he just flashed – well, with nothing.  George Clooney just stared back at Alec with a 1/4th of a grin but that’s just it.  The audience seem to have chuckled a bit.  I am not sure if the audience get the joke or they just thought he looked funny startled for ten seconds on stage.  Anyway, the representative and other journalists say that George was just in a fine mood and it didn’t really mean anything much.  What do you think?  Let us know your views on this topic by commenting below.

  1. George Clooney definitely was not in his best humor the entire night. At the pre-Oscar red carpet walk, he was so out of character, and he was even (it seemed) a bit rude to his date. Something was not right with him, don’t think it was Baldwin!

  2. George and Alec are friends, they are both irish, share the exact same liberal political views, support the same charities, and they both can be seen chatting it up and laughing at many public gatherings. George was “in” on the joke and that is why he just kept a straight face.

  3. Or it could just be that there is absolutely nothing funny about George Clooney and *that* was the joke…Cheers!

  4. I agree with Christine. The two men are friends. Obviously, it was an “in” joke that the rest of us in TV land are not privy to.

  5. Reps for both of them have said that George was in on the joke. George and Alec spoke before the awards and set the whole thing up. You’d think people would have guessed that since George is such a big jokester himself.
