George Clooney, Up in the Air
Professional downsizer Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) spends his life on a plane, traveling to every corner of the country to do companies' dirty work. When a young hotshot suggests a policy that could keep him grounded, Bingham must take a hard look at what he's missed while up in the air. Previously nominated for four Oscars, Clooney won his first in 2006 for his supporting role in Syriana.
