Steve Jobs Movie Wins Two Awards At The 2016 Golden Globes
The Steve Jobs movie may well go down in history as being remembered for its lackluster box-office performance, but it didn’t fair too badly at 73rd Golden Globe Awards. After being nominated for four awards in total, the movie managed to secure the vote for half of those nominations, picking up two gongs during the ceremony. Aaron Sorkin took home the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay and Kate Winslet managed to capture the attention of those casting their votes, winning the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role award for her acting alongside Michael Fassbender.
The Danny Boyle directed Steve Jobs movie was also nominated for two additional awards. Leading actor Michael Fassbender’s name was thrown into the ring for the Best Performance by an Actor award, which was ultimately won be Leonardo DiCaprio for his powerful and inspirational performance in The Revenant.
Daniel Pemberton may not be a name that movie goers are instantly familiar with, but the composer for Steve Jobs, was up against some prestigious competition in the Best Original Score category. That was eventually taken home by Ennio Morricone for his work on Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.
The evening may have been tinged with personal gain for Sorkin who added to his glowing reputation by picking up the award for Best Screenplay, but it was also a time to reflect on the Steve Jobs movie and reinstate a little pride for the cast and crew. After a strong initial opening the movie quickly became known as “Box Office Failure Steve Jobs“; a moniker that hit Sorkin and those who worked on the niche title really hard. Speaking at the occasion, Sorkin said:
The first weekend, we broke box office records. Same for the second weekend. The third weekend, the title of the movie changed to ‘Box Office Failure Steve Jobs’.
It took some of the air out – the pride we had been feeling. We understood it wasn’t for everybody, but we worked so hard on it. It was an unexpected and unusual movie. We just didn’t want that to be the epitaph for the movie. So this is very nice.
The roller-coaster ride isn’t over yet for those integral cast members. Nominations are about to take place for the 88th Academy Awards with Kate Winslet, Michael Fassbender, and Arron Sorkin all expected to receive nominations for their roles in the Steve Jobs movie.
