Christian Bale bagged his second ever Golden Globe honour for his role as former U.S. President Dick Cheney in ‘Vice’. The 44-year-old actor got the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy award at the 2019 Golden Globes. 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. 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.”  He 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’.

Rami Malek won his first Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) for his film ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Speaking on the occasion, Malek said, “My heart is pounding out of my chest right now. This is a profound honor to receive this, and to be counted amongst such extraordinary actors.” The award was presented to Malek by Richard Gere and Julianne Moore.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ was announced, by actor Nicole Kidman, as the HFPA’s Best Drama. Producer Graham King took to the stage and thanked the audience for the award. The 2018 biographical film is about the British rock band Queen that followed singer Freddie Mercury’s life from his joining the band in 1970, to their Live Aid performance at Wembley Stadium in 1985.
