Golden Globes: Christian Bale Thanks 'Satan' for Inspiration to Play Dick Cheney

Vice topped all contenders in the nominations that were announced at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, including best picture, comedy, and best actor nominations for Christian Bale's almost unrecognizable performance as the former vice president.

James Franco won the Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy or musical a year ago for "The Disaster Artist".

In his acceptance speech, Bale singled out Satan for "giving me inspiration on how to play this role". His first came in 2011 when he won for his performance in boxing drama "The Fighter".

In his acceptance speech, Bale thanked the dark lord.

Bale teased that the next political figure he'll take on is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Bale has been widely praised for his portrayal of a growling Cheney in "Vice", gaining 60 pounds for the part and seemingly disappearing into the role of the resilient and ruthlessly ambitious politician.

Moving away from his comedic display, Christian thanked his two children, Emmaline, 13, and Joseph, four, as well as his wife Sibi Blazic, 48.

"To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential".

"Thank you to that geezer over there, [director] Adam [McKay]". Hail Christian! Hail Satan!'

In a tweet, the group reacted positively to Bale's thanks to Satan.
