Golden Globe Lock: Christian Bale

The Best Supporting Actor category has been the easiest to predict the last few years: Javier Bardem for No Country For Old Men, Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, and Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds.

This year will be no different. Christian Bale is what makes The Fighter one of 2010's best movies. Bale plays Dicky Eklund, the brother of Mark Wahlberg's character. Because of Dicky's drug addiction, he had to drastically alter his appearance, which he seems to have no problem doing (Watch The Machinist). His scenes are intense, and his Boston accent/mannerisms are spot on.

He steals the movie from Wahlberg. And the more I watch him, the more I think he's the best actor on the planet right now.
