In an unprecedented thank-you speech at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards show, the winner for best actor, Britain’s Christian Bale, gave all the glory and thanks to Satan for helping him in his portrayal of former President George W. Bush’s Vice President, Dick Cheney.
“Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role,” said Bale, who won for best actor in a comedy or musical for the movie “Vice.”
“The immigrant actor has had successful career here in the United States, and I would have thought he would at least thank America and Americans for their patronage each time they buy a movie ticket to one of his films or they rent his movies. I guess Bale is just one more mentally-challenged denizen of the entertainment industry that includes Barbara Steisand, Ed Asner and other neo-socialists,” said former police officer and bodyguard Leeza DeNapoli.
In response to Bale’s speech, the Church of Satan tweeted, “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!”
Bale went on to thank the writer and director of “Vice,” Adam McKay, while joking about being cast for the role.
“(McKay had) to find somebody who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody,” Bale joked. “And he went, ‘Ah, it’s got to be Bale in it.’ ”
“Thank you, and for all the competition. I will be cornering the market on charisma-free (expletive),” he stated. “What do you think? Mitch McConnell next? That would be good.”
Bale has been widely praised for his portrayal of Cheney, receiving nominations from the Screen Actor Guild Awards and Critics’ Choice Awards. However, like the anti-Republican movies by Michael Moore and Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” Vice writers have set aside honesty and went with the Liberal-Left view of accuracy, said observers who had first-hand knowledge of what Bale and his ilk distort on motion picture screens
He previously won an Academy Award and Golden Globes Award for best supporting actor for 2010’s “The Fighter.”
