'Steve Jobs' Nominated for Best Supporting Actress and Best Actor Oscars

Ahead of the official ceremony for the 88th Academy Awards on February 28, this morning the nominations for all 24 categories at the Oscars were announced at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs managed to net a few nominations of its own during the event, including: Kate Winslet for Best Support Actress and Michael Fassbender for Best Actor. Notably, Aaron Sorkin wasn't nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Today's announcement comes after the film won two Golden Globes earlier in the week, one for Kate Winslet in the Best Support Actress category and another for Aaron Sorkin's screenplay. During the ceremony, Sorkin commented on his hope for these awards to overshadow the film's poor box office performance, considering the high amount of critical praise Steve Jobs has received in the face of its lackluster draw.

Steve Jobs Nominated for Best Supporting Actress

I'm all for gender equality but this is a bridge too far. Some things just need to stay seperated. Also post-mortem Oscars must not be handed out.

Good thing for the quotes around 'Steve Jobs' or that would have been one hell of a story...

Such a good movie, don't get why people like to make fun of it so much. It doesn't even get into his personal life that much, illness, wife etc. I think it was done in good taste, and Michael and Kate both did such a good job.

Since Di Caprio is nominated to the best actor category, I think Fassbender stands a chance :D. In all seriousness, I do hope Di Caprio wins this year (it´s about time certain memes ended)

Why do people complain that the "Movie" is not based on actual event, on exactly how they happened.

This is not a documentary.

Its about entertainment, if I want to read the exact facts, I'll research themselves. I cannot remember any movie that has been based on actual event to have stayed true to the story, Hollywood always makes changes to spice up the entertainment value.

Anyway, best movie about jobs that I have seen so far, it was actually about his fall and comeback, hence the choice of launches, clever.

Kate Winslet's performance was definitely deserving of the nomination.

Terrible year for the Oscars.

I kind of liked Mad Max for what it tried to do. It was interesting.
I really liked The Martian.

But Best Picture? Are you kidding me???
