Bale, 44, gained 40 pounds for the role and basically transformed himself into Cheney, so it was no surprise that he won the award, but his acceptance speech was a little unexpected and lit up social media.

After thanking the usual people, his wife and children included, Bale veered off script, crediting the devil for his inspired performance.

“Thank you, Satan, for giving me inspiration on how to play” Cheney, Bale declared.
