George and Amal Clooney Turn a UN Gala Into Date Night as She Accepts a Prestigious Award

George and Amal Clooney stepped out for a dreamy date night on Dec. 5 for the 70th anniversary of the UN Correspondents Association in New York City, and they brought along a couple of extraspecial guests - George's parents. Nick and Nina Clooney accompanied the couple as human rights lawyer Amal was honored with the 2018 UNCA Global Citizen of the Year Award.

The Oscar winner looked dapper as ever in a black tux and Amal stunned in a sheer blue and white gown. While they entered the event with George's parents on their arms, the beaming couple exited hand-in-hand. What a sweet family night out!

After being presented with her award, Amal took the opportunity to call out Donald Trump and his administration's mistreatment of journalists in an impassioned speech. "The chilling effect is real, and it has already been felt not only in Myanmar, but further afield," she said. "And sadly, similar incidents abound in autocratic regimes from North Korea to the Philippines to Hungary, Turkey, and Brazil. The US president has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country the enemy of the people."

Ahead, check out more photos of the couple and watch Amal's speech.
