This 76th Golden Globe Awards 2019 did witness fresh winners. Well, except all the mandatory awards, a new award took the honors i.e. Carol Brunett Award which was awarded to none other than herself. It was no surprise to include a “legendary” award as her contribution to the industry could not be praised by less than naming an award after her. When we zoom into the award scene, the atmosphere had a certain balance of tension and enthrallment. And this 76th Golden Globe Awards, the Dark Knight was finally risen again! Yes, I’m talking about the Dark Knight Christian Bale. He won an award as the best actor in a comedy or musical for “Vice”. The 44 years old actor portrayed himself as a former Vice-President Dick Cheney. This movie was lauded with praises and critics too. But Christian Bale was wholly praised for his performance in the movie. “Vice” was running for six awards at Sunday’s Golden Globe awards. Adam Mckay for best director, Amy Adams for supporting actresses, Sam Rockwell for supporting actor, the movie for the best musical or comedy and Lady Gaga for “A Star is Born”. Well, the movie was successful in acquiring one award in the name of Christian Bale.
In his Golden Globe Awards acceptance speech, he began with thanking his children and love of his life, “who told me less is more.”. “She knows the dumb crap that can come out of my mouth at times. I can sink and ruin a perfectly good movie and so-so career in one speech. So thank you for that advice, my love.” Bale continued. “(McKay had) to find somebody who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody,”. he jokingly said. “And he went, ‘Ah, it’s got to be Bale in it.’ “, he added. The method actor continued, “Thank you. And for all the competition I will be cornering the market on charisma-free [bleep]. What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That would be good, wouldn’t it?”. Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration for playing this role,” thanking the director and writer Adam Mckay!
Well, his kind and grateful words got a positive response from The Church of Satan itself, which wrote, “To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty, and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. As Mr. Bale’s own talent and skill won him the award, this is fitting. Hail Christian! Hail Satan!”
For Christian, it was his fourth nominee and his second win! He grabbed the first award in 2011 for Best Supporting Actor in the movie, “The Fighter”. Last year, the award was grabbed by James Franco as the best actor in comedy or musical for “The Disaster Artist”.
