The Oscar nominations are out, and Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet both have nominations for their roles in Aaron Sorkin's "Steve Jobs" film. Mr. Sorkin didn't, however land a nomination for his screenplay.
Steve Jobs movie lands two Oscar nominations
Mr. Fassbender was nominated for Best Actor for his role as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Ms. Winslet was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Joanna Hoffman.
The movie landed two Golden Globe awards earlier this month, too. Ms. Winslet won an award for best supporting actress, and Mr. Sorkin for his screenplay.
The movie was controversial because many fans and people who knew Mr. Jobs later in his life felt the portrail was inaccurate and failed to capture his caring side. People who knew him during the movie's timeframe, however, felt it was an accurate representation of Mr. Jobs at that point in his life.
Mr. Sorkin's screenplay had his typical rapid fire dialog that was practically a character itself, but many potential viewers stayed away because of their disappointment in how Mr. Jobs was portrayed. In the end, "Steve Jobs" became a polarized love-it-or-hate-it film, and ultimately tanked at the box office.
The Oscar winners will be announced during the 88th annual Academy Awards event scheduled for Sunday, February 28. The ceremony will be aired like on ABC at 7PM eastern time.
