Kentucky is honoring native son George Clooney with an award from the governor.

Clooney's parents, Nick and Nina Clooney, were at the Kentucky State Capitol on Tuesday to receive the award on their son's behalf. The actor won the "national award" category in the 2009 Kentucky Governor's Awards in the Arts.

The award is given each year to a Kentucky-born artist who has gained national or international recognition.

Clooney was born in Lexington, Ky., and graduated from high school in Augusta in northern Kentucky.
