Somehow, the Prince of Darkness is nearly always left out of acceptance speeches.until last night, that is.
Besides Satan, Bale also took a conventional route when he thanked his wife and daughter. In his Vice acceptance speech, Bale also joked about considering to play Mitch McConnell in his next biopic. Their actual names are Emmeline and Joseph-phew.
The charges against Bale - alleged assault against his mother and sister - were ultimately dropped because the prosecution in England couldn't find enough evidence to support the allegations. "Thank you, and for all the competition, I will be cornering the market on charisma-free a**holes", the Hill reported.
The show played a clip of the actor thanked "Satan" for providing him inspiration to play the former vice president.
"He did make him seem like Satan, by reports", Kilmeade said.
They then turned to viewer comments to hurl shade at Bale for criticizing high-ranking Republican party officials.
Meanwhile, the Church of Satan is celebrating the shoutout, and declared his Batman the best in Hollywood history.
"To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential", the Church wrote on its social media pages. Bale won on talent and skill, so his shout-out was "fitting".
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") with his second Globe win. Some people loved it... just probably not Dick Cheney.
