Awards season is here again, and with it, the reassuring sight of George Clooney in a tuxedo.

For us, seeing Clooney in a tux is one of the great seasonal pleasures, like the migration of the butterflies or the cherry blossoms of Kyoto. And in honor of this spectacularly consistent display of elegance, we’ve pulled together 21 pictures from the last few cycles, to give you an idea of what you can look forward to when he takes the stage for the Oscars next Sunday.

If at any point you feel overcome by the sheer volume of charisma on display, just look away from your computer and the feeling will pass.
