LOS ANGELES—After being recognized for his outstanding work in the film The Fighter, actor Christian Bale was awarded a gold-plated statuette of a nude, sword-wielding man with no genitals named Oscar. “It’s such an honor,” said Bale, holding a 13.5 inch featureless eunuch. “Thank you. Thank you so much.” Many more of the faceless bald figurines of tiny little men were presented to various film technicians the night before.
