It has been announced that BAFTA winning actor George Clooney will scoop another award in L.A this year - the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film - after his work as a producer on the Ben Affleck-directed Argo. This news coincides with the strong rumours that Clooney and his girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, have split up. According to the The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles, as reported by Yahoo! News, the coveted award is presented to a "unique individual, upon whose work is stamped the indelible mark of authorship and commitment, and who has lifted the craft to new heights." Gary Dartnall, the BAFTA Los Angeles chairman spoke highly of the 53 year-old actor and his successful career: "George Clooney is without question one of our industry's true icons. His work has captivated audiences from all corners of the globe, and BAFTA Los Angeles is proud to be celebrating his immeasurable contributions to our craft."

Stacy Keibler now joins the long list of George Clooney's ex-girlfriends and, compared to Clooney's average, their relationship was relatively long-term. The silver-haired actor's previous partners have included reality TV star Sarah Larson (less than one year), Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis (two years), John Travolta's now-wife Kelly Preston (one year) and Bridget Jones actress Renee Zellweger (less than two years). According to People magazine's source, it was the 33 year-old former WWE wrestler Keibler who broke off their romance: "Stacy called it quits. She wants to have children and a family someday. She knows where George stands on that. They talked and they quietly stopped being a couple several weeks ago." It has also been speculated that the busy couple's current distance - Clooney's in Europe filming WWII film The Monuments Men, Keibler's working on her Supermarket Superstar show in L.A - could have driven them apart having not seen each other since her March visit to Berlin.
