In 1999, he left ER and had a series of box office successes, including his most popular to date, Ocean’s 11. He appeared in the film Syriana in 2005, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. 

That same year, he was also nominated both for writing and directing Good Night, and Good Luck, and became the first person in Oscar history to be nominated for directing a film and acting in another, in the same year. 

Since 2013, Clooney has appeared in a number of commercials for Nespresso. He has also spent a portion of each paycheck to fund a spy satellite that appears over Sudan at all times. This allows him to keep an eye on Sudanese dictator Omar al-Bashir who has been charged with hate crimes. The satellite not only tracks Bashir personally, it also tracks his armed forces to anticipate movements and potential human rights violations.
