Congrats to George Clooney, Jason Reitman and Up In the Air for landing six Golden Globe nominations including best drama and best dramatic actor. In celebration of the nods, here are some exclusive pix of Clooney filming parts of the flick right here at the Hilton Miami Airport where shooting took place for a week in May and included scenes in the hotel's lobby, pool deck, elevators and ballroom. Despite the fact that writer-director Reitman told one TV interviewer he's no fan of Miami International Airport (who is?), he may have been more upset with the city's priorities, telling Cinematical that, through all his travels, "In Europe, there was a lot of talk about the economy. Everyone wanted to talk about the economy. In Miami, it's George Clooney,George Clooney, George Clooney." Of course we did.

As we already reported, Jennifer Hudson pulled in a whopping $200,000 to sing four songs---One Night Only, Love You I Do (during which time she brought up super fan Joseph Quinones to sing with her---how cool!), Dreamgirls and I Am Telling You I'm Not Going---at The Setai's swanky New Year's bash. But we got hold of her rider and found out a few more things the Oscar-winning diva requested during her stay---hot chicken wings, berry flavored Gatorade, a humidifier and a request that the air conditioning be off during her stay. Not bad, considering. After performing her set, Hudson exited stage left to the "green room," where she posed for pix with co-host Dylan McDermott and DJ Sky Nellor. After mugging for the cameras, Hudson asked a hotel staffer for a quick snack of chicken fingers and fries. Contrary to reports, we were told Hudson was hardly a diva in attitude and was gracious and delightful. I'd be so too if I got 200 grand to sing four songs.
