Christian Bale thanks Satan in his Golden Globes speech!

Christian Bale picked up a Golden Globe on Sunday night, and in the process of accepting the award, threw a jab at the real-life man he portrayed in “Vice” – former Vice President Dick Cheney. He also took a shot at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role,” Bale said during his acceptance speech for Best Actor in in a Musical or Comedy.

The actor thanked director Adam McKay for choosing him to play a person that is “absolutely charisma-free.”

“Thank you to that geezer over there, Adam,” Bale teased. “He said ‘I’ve got to find someone who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody.’ So he went, ‘That’s gotta be Bale,'” the Welsh actor joked.

“For all the competition, I will be cornering the market on charisma-free a**h***s,” Bale continued. “What do you think, Mitch McConnell next?” The crowd cheered at the joke taking aim at the Senate majority leader. Bale made a similar joke during an interview with “CBS This Morning” last month. Bale and McKay spoke about the movie’s depiction of Cheney and the choice of Bale to play the former VP.

“At which point do you start thinking about Christian? While you were writing it or while you’re reading it?” co-anchor John Dickerson asked.

“When Dick Cheney’s described as a man lacking any charisma, right?” Bale joked. “That was when you went, ‘Oh, gotta be Bale.'”

Bale, who is known for physically transforming himself for roles, gained 40 pounds to play the former vice president. The dark comedy spans 50 years of Dick Cheney’s rise to power, from wild nights and bar fights as a youth in Wyoming to a Washington insider who became the most powerful vice president in history.

During his Globes speech, Bale also thanked his wife for telling him “less is more,” and then thanked his children, whom he jokingly called “Banana and Burrito.” Bale has referred to his kids by these fake names before – seemingly a joke on the outrageous names some celebrities choose for their babies.

At the end of his acceptance speech, Bale thanked his costars, including Amy Adams, who played his on-screen wife, Lynne Cheney. After thanking others, he turned to his wife in the audience and asked “Am I missing anything, darling?” which received more laughter from the crowd.

Boxing star Adrien Broner has a busy Monday — he’s got dates in TWO courtrooms in TWO states to face TWO separate allegations of sexual misconduct, TMZ Sports has learned.

… and it’s all going down just TWO weeks before his mega-fight with Manny Pacquiao.

Here’s the deal … Broner was arrested back in February in Atlanta for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at a local shopping mall. Cops say he groped her against her will.

Just 4 months later, Broner was arrested again in Cleveland for allegedly throwing himself on top of a woman at a nightclub and forcing her to kiss him. He’s facing multiple felony counts including gross sexual imposition and abduction.

As fate would have it … both cases have been scheduled for January 7 — and since he can’t be in two places at once, he’s gotta decide which hearing he wants to attend.

We’ve learned Broner is planning on sending a lawyer in his place to Ohio — where he’s not required to attend the hearing in person.

Does that mean he’ll be in Atlanta instead? Broner has a habit of blowing off court cases … so, no one really knows where he’ll be.

Adrien is facing 5 separate charges for the two incidents … and if he’s convicted on all counts — he could go to jail for NINE years.

The craziest part of the story — Broner also has a court date in Florida on Jan. 23 stemming from his arrest for failure to appear in court earlier this month for traffic violations.

In between it all … Broner’s massive fight with Pacquiao is set for Jan. 19 in Las Vegas.
