While the Golden Globes mostly avoided political commentary when compared to other recent awards shows, one actor decided to make his acceptance speech an insult-filled commentary about GOP leaders.

During his acceptance speech for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for his role as Dick Cheney in “Vice,” Christian Bale turned it into a political commentary about his role and other GOP leaders.

“Thank you to that geezer over there, Adam,” said Bale, referring to director Adam McKay. “He said I got to find someone who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody, so he went, ‘it’s got to be Bale in it.’”


While he kept a joking tone to the speech, Bale made sure to get a few jabs in about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“For all the competition, I will be cornering the market on charisma-free a*****es,” Bale joked. “What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That could be good.”

He also claimed that Satan, not Cheney, was the inspiration for the award-winning role.

“Thank you to Satan for inspiration on how to play this role,” said Bale.

However, it is uncertain how Bale got his opinion about the Senate majority leader, but the actor has been outspoken about his opinion on President Donald Trump.
