Christian Bale wins Best Actor at 2019 Golden Globes

Washington: Christian Bale bagged the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy award at the 2019 Golden Globes for his role as former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney in ‘Vice’.

The 44-year-old earned his second ever Golden Globe honour for his uncanny portrayal of Cheney in Adam McKay’s political satire, which traces the politician’s rise to power.

While accepting his award, Bale said, “Aw, look at us, what a bunch of lucky buggers we are, to make a life out of doing something that we love. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of that for so many years.”

‘The Dark Knight’ star concluded the speech by thanking “Satan for giving me inspiration.”
The actor won his first Golden Globe award in 2011 for his role in ‘The Fighter’.

Bale beat out Lin-Manuel Miranda (Mary Poppins Returns), Viggo Mortensen (Green Book), Robert Redford (The Old Man & The Gun) and John C. Reilly (Stan & Ollie) to take home the trophy.
