Earlier today, The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced it will present the charitable actor with its Bob Hope Humanitarian Award at this year's ceremony on August 29.

Citing Clooney's efforts as the head of Hope for Haiti, as well as his fundraising for victims of Hurricane Katrina and his involvement with Darfur, John Shaffner - chairman and chief executive of the TV academy -  said this was "an obvious choice."

We agree.
