George Clooney has yet another accolade to add to his arsenal: the Chairman’s Award, which he’ll accept at the 23rd Palm Springs International Film Festival for his work in “The Ides of March” and “The Descendants.” The prestigious award has previously been given to A-listers like Nicole Kidman, Dustin Hoffman and Ben Affleck.

“A consummate actor, director, producer and screenwriter, he’s demonstrated that no discipline within the film industry is beyond his reach,” said film festival chairman Harold Matzner of Clooney. “To this star of many talents, whose career, fortunately for all of us who admire him, is still a work in progress, the Palm Springs International Film Festival is proud to present the 2011 Chairman’s Award to George Clooney.”
