Oscar nominee George Clooney was left red-faced when an award he received fell apart during an acceptance speech last week. The SYRIANA star was at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival to receive top honour the Modern Master Award.

After Clooney’s sincere acceptance speech, he held the award over his head during which the flimsy trophy broke into two pieces and fell to the floor. An embarrassed Clooney made light of the situation by saying, “Did you do this to (2004 winner) Peter Jackson, too?”
