And The Award For Best Supporting Actor Goes To…


By now most of you that Christian Bale received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for this year’s Oscars. Bale is exceptional as Dicky Ekland, Micky Ward’s half-brother who happens to be a crackhead. Bale shows dedication to his craft with his rapid weight-loss for this role, which he isn’t a stranger of (The Machinist). He steals the show in every scene by displaying true grit along with a drug addict’s charm. Honestly, its refreshing to see Bale do a role where he isn’t a pretentious-rich-prick, there was a human element that he brought out as the film goes along. If you having seen The Fighter, go see it now! Below is the real Dicky Ekland.
