Christian Bale Gets Robbed Of Best Actor Award At The Oscars For ‘Vice’
Christian Bale didn’t win Best Actor Sunday night at the Oscars, and that’s simply not okay.
Bale was nominated for his role in “Vice” as Dick Cheney. I thought he was a lock, but Rami Malek took it home for “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
No disrespect to Malek, but there was only one option for who should win this award. I don’t care if you liked “Vice” or not. There’s no denying that Bale was unbelievable in it.
I left the theater thinking he was actually Dick Cheney. I bought his performance hook, line and sinker. Again, I’m not saying you have to actually like or agree with the film.
It was over-the-top, and straight up absurd at times. However, Bale as Cheney was one of the most believable performances that I’ve seen in an extremely long time. (RELATED: This Film Is The Heavy Favorite To Win The Oscar For Best Picture)
I simply don’t understand how the Academy didn’t agree with my assessment. Sure, there are always a ton of strong contenders, but this one wasn’t even close for me.
The moment I left the theater, I told the person I was with he deserved an Oscar for his role. It’s just a damn shame he didn’t get it.
It seems like nobody is more regularly disrespected than Bale is. He’s an epic talent, and has about 1/10 of the awards he deserves. The fact he never won an Oscar for any of the “Dark Knight” films is downright criminal.
Even if he didn’t walk away with the award, I think we all know he’s still a generational talent.
