One of the most predictable categories at the 68th Annual Golden Globes was for Best Supporting Actor. The statue went to Christian Bale for his portrayal of Dicky Hedlund in the boxing drama The Fighter. The actor previously picked up the award in the same category at Friday night’s Critics Choice Awards.
See who he beat out below…
Best Supporting Actor
Christian Bale (The Fighter) – Winner
Michael Douglas (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps)
Andrew Garfield (The Social Network)
Jeremy Renner (The Town)
Geoffrey Rush (The King’s Speech)
During his acceptance speech Bale thanked his co-star Mark Wahlberg for delivering such a quiet performance that allowed his loud and boisterous character to be noticed. He also joked about not knowing who the folks at the Hollywood Foreign Press were, but he stated that they have incredible taste in actors. When did Bale get a sense of humor?
