"You are an inspiration as a woman, as an artist, as a press-freedom advocate", Amal said in her speech. "Fantastic Fox just makes that so much less awkward", she went on to say.
Amal, who was born in Lebanon before settling in the United Kingdom at age two, has worked in New York City, London and The Hague as a human rights lawyer, and has represented high-profile clients including Julian Assange and Nobel Peace Prize victor Nadia Murad.
George and Streep voiced the characters Mr. Fox and Mrs. Fox in the 2009 animated movie "Fantastic Mr. Fox".
In 2013 Meryl hailed George as "the dream boyfriend".
The family-friendly comedy was based on the Roald Dahl book of the same name and featured numerous Anderson regulars, including Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman. While accepting the award, the 42-year-old global human rights lawyer thanked Streep, 71, and couldn't help but gush over the "Devil Wears Prada" actress.
The two actors have been friends for years and have worked together on the Ocean's film saga. "And I thought, what I do have are these guys who've all, over a period of 35 years, helped me in one way or another".

In a recent GQinterview, George gushed over Amal, saying that when they met, he thought his life was "full".
He continued, "And I thought, you know, without them I don't have any of this". And then everything changed.
Clooney finally confirmed the rumor that he gifted some of his friends $1 million for helping him out, telling GQ the facts behind the story that was first revealed by his pal Rande Gerber in 2017. "And I said, 'How do you repay people like that?' And I said, 'Oh, well: How about a million bucks?'" I thought if something happened to me, like a bus hit me, they'd be in my will.
"I'd never been in the position where someone else's life was infinitely more important to me than my own", George admitted.
