WALSH: Christian Bale Just Gave The Most Honest Acceptance Speech In The History Of Hollywood
By Matt Walsh

The Golden Globes happened last night. Normally, this would not be a notable or interesting fact. There is nothing more excruciating or pointless than a four-hour ceremony consisting of celebrities congratulating themselves. But this year's event did feature one noteworthy moment. It was a moment of honesty. Unintentional honesty, but still honesty.
...Bale thanking "Satan" for inspiring his performance in the role. Now, obviously he meant this to be tongue-in-cheek, but I think it accidentally revealed a deep truth. To my knowledge, Satan has never before been thanked by name at a major Hollywood awards show. Usually God is given the credit for all of the stupidity and filth that movie studios have produced in the given year. It's refreshing to see the credit go where it is rightfully due for a change.
There is something rather profound about a famous actor expressing gratitude to the Devil. Many of these people have traded their souls in exchange for fame and fortune. The artistic fruits they bear give testament to their spiritual emptiness. Bale may have winked at Hell as a joke, but a lot of truth is said in jest. And this may have been the truest thing ever uttered at a ceremony of this type.
At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11
