"I think it's a good thing to do once in a while [to] make sure you can," said George, who admitted that he feels better since giving up the bottle. "It's funny [when] you don't have a hangover. It's nice."

Although nominated for both The Descendants and The Ides of March, George predicted an "all-French" night, indicating that he expected The Artist to clean up.
