The recent Universal biopic on the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs may have been a box office disappointment, but two of its cast and crew members have just been given awards for their work on the film. Actress Kate Winslet won for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture at the 2016 Golden Globe awards for her performance as Apple's former marketing head Joanna Hoffman. Aaron Sorkin also won for Best Screenplay - Motion Picture for his script of the controversial film.
Michael Fassbender, who played the title role in Steve Jobs was nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama, at this year's Golden Globes, but he lost to Leonardo DiCaprio for his performance in The Revenant. The film's musical score by Daniel Pemberton was also nominated, but it lost out to Ennio Morricone's work in The Hateful Eight.
While the movie itself was a critical hit, it failed to attract a large box office audience when it was released wide in theaters. Many former and current Apple employees also slammed the movie for its many factual inaccuracies. Steve Jobs will make its official digital download debut on February 2, followed by its Blu-ray and DVD release on February 16.
