Christian Bale, who played former Vice President Dick Cheney in "Vice," won best actor for his performance.
Bale thanked Adam McKay, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "The Big Short," for hiring him for the part.
"He said, 'I've got to find someone who can be absolutely charisma-free and rivaled by everybody ... thank you for all the competition. I will be cornering the market on charisma-free (sic)," Bale said.
He then asked the audience, "What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That could be good couldn't it?"
Bale went on to thank "satan," "for giving me inspiration on how to play this role."
"Vice" tells the story of how Cheney, in his role as vice president to George W. Bush (played by Sam Rockwell in the film), "became the most powerful man in the world" and reshaped "the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today," according to a description from the studio.
