Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film racked up two wins at last night's 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, getting half of the awards for which it was nominated. In total, Aaron Sorkin won for Best Screenplay and Kate Winslet won for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role.

Notably, Michael Fassbender lost to Leonardo DiCaprio's win in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama category for The Revenant. Steve Jobs' composer, Daniel Pemberton, was also edged out by Ennio Morricone's composition for The Hateful Eight in the Best Original Score section.

The new Steve Jobs film has been remembered more for its poor box office performance in the months since its wide release than for the quality of the film, and Aaron Sorkin briefly remarked on the topic while backstage at the Golden Globes. Sorkin commented on his enthusiasm for winning the award after the film had come to be known as "Box Office Failure Steve Jobs," hoping last night's double wins will bolster the movie’s legacy in the face of its financial failures.

"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."

Now that the Golden Globes out of the way, most are looking towards the 88th Academy Awards as the next major awards ceremony of the year, with nominations taking place this coming Thursday, January 14. Steve Jobs was rumored for Oscar nominations since the film debuted at Telluride in September, so it's likely to get some some of the similar recognition it got this year at the Golden Globes: Michael Fassbender for Best Actor, Kate Winslet for Best Supporting Actress, and Aaron Sorkin for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Is Macrumors a technology web site or an affiliate of Hollywood Reporter?
Neither. It's an Apple news website. They cover all aspects of Apple, including personal details about various employees at Apple and news about Apple's competitors.

This movie was about the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs, and so falls into the list of things that are covered on the website. You needn't read the article if you don't want to - it's pretty obvious from the title that it isn't a tech-oriented article.

Also, this was a terrible movie. The acting wasn't good. The script was horrible.

A question requiring a yes/no answer may get 3 paragraphs. Sometimes writers can get way too cute.
I take it you've never seen an Aaron Sorkin show/film before. It's not 'cute'. It's his very distinct style that has a rhythm and cadence that's really unlike any other writer out there. Like him or hate him, what Aaron Sorkin does isn't ever intended to be exactly real. Of course people don't talk like that. But people don't talk in iambic pentameter either and yet we consider Shakespeare's words to be greatness.
