Clooney earned his first lead actor Oscar nomination for playing a "fixer" with a gambling problem at a high-powered New York law firm in Tony Gilroy's engrossing, suspenseful thriller. Even though the film is set in contemporary times, "Michael Clayton" has its roots in such classic 1970s... Myles Aronowitz / Warner Bros. Pictures
