The Internet is very, very confused about Christian Bale's accent at the Golden Globes

3 min read

Must be heard to be believed.

So, the Golden Globes are over for another year and while yes, we're about to get into the whole 'winners and losers' thing, we have some Very Important News to share.

Christian Bale isn't American.

Yes! Despite what everyone seems to think, the actor was actually born in Wales and considers himself to be British - or specifically - "I was born in Wales but I'm not Welsh – I'm English".

And due to his acting prowess, we all kind of... forgot about this lil' factoid.

So, like any internet-based platform, Twitter responded the only way they know how: jokes and memes.

Okay, now that we've overcome this particular spot of #goss, let's dive into all the winners and nominees from this year's Golden Globe Awards shall we?
