All the HOTTEST Looks From the Golden Globes Red Carpet

And that wasn't the only shot the actor took at Republicans.

Not today, Satan. Unless you're Christian Bale.

The "Vice" star actually thanked the Devil during his Golden Globes acceptance speech Sunday night, when he won the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, for his portrayal of former Vice President Dick Cheney in "Vice."

"Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role," he joked in the middle of the light-hearted speech, and then proceeded to thank his co-stars and the movie's makeup team. "If they hadn’t done their job absolutely brilliantly I wouldn’t be here no one would give a crap about it at all. I share this with you gentlemen and all the crew as well."

But the Satan reference wasn't the only jab he had in store for President George W. Bush's right-hand man, and even poked fun at another high-profile Republican party leader currently in office.

"Thank you to that geezer over there, [director] Adam [McKay]. He said, 'I got to find somebody who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody,'" Bale explained. "So he went to ask Bale to be in it. You know, thank you and for all the competition, I will be corning the market on charisma-free assholes. What do you think? Mitch McConnell next?"

McConnell, a Kentucky senator, is currently the Senate Majority Leader.

This is Bale's second Golden Globe win. His first came in 2011 when he won for his performance in boxing drama "The Fighter."

"Vice" received the most Golden Globe nominations this year out of any other movie, with a total of six. So far, Bale is the only winner from the film.
