Aaron Sorkin & Kate Winslet pick up Golden Globes for roles in Steve Jobs biopicThe Danny Boyle biopic Steve Jobs picked up two awards during the Golden Globes on Sunday, including Best Screenplay for Aaron Sorkin, and Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for Kate Winslet.
Michael Fassbender, who played Jobs, lost the Best Performance by an Actor award to Leonardo DiCaprio, star of The Revenant. DiCaprio, coincidentally, was at one point tapped to play Jobs but instead reportedly declined it to take a hiatus from acting.
Daniel Pemberton missed out on Best Original Score, an award which was instead claimed by Ennio Morricone for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.
Steve Jobs did not receive any nominations for Best Director or Best Motion Picture.
The film infamously bombed at the box office during its main U.S. theatrical run, failing to make back even half of its production and marketing costs. International distribution and next month's impending online, Blu-ray, and DVD releases could help soften the blow.
The Golden Globes are often seen as a hint at prospects for the Academy Awards, which are scheduled for Feb. 28. A few wins there could potentially revive interest in Jobs.
