George Clooney goes on the record with ET about his Golden Globe nomination.

""Not a bad way to start a Tuesday," the two-time past Golden Globe winner succinctly tells ET about hearing the news that he was nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) for his role in 'Up in the Air.' His reaction also refers to 'Up in the Air' receiving an additional five nominations and the fact that another film he starred in, 'Fantastic Mr. Fox,' was nominated for Best Animated Feature.
