Oscars 2011: Did Christian Bale Forget His Wifes Name?

It must be an overwhelming thing to win an Oscar. Not just to get up on that stage in front of an audience of thousands but to know that, like, billions, would be watching you live on TV. Plus it’s pretty much the biggest honor an actor could get. So, in that state of mind, standing front and center on the stage, clutching that golden statuette and then having to give a speech must be very daunting.That said, I have one question for you…did Christian Bale forget his wife’s name?

When he got up to accept his award for Best Actor he did something that every husband dread, it appeared to forget his wife’s name. He thanked a bunch of people and when he went to thank his wife he stammered and looked like he totally spaced out.  The camera went to his wife’s face which looked like a mixture of joy and awkwardness.

Did you see it? Did you think he was just stunned or did he forget his wife’s name?
