Steve Jobs may have proved divisive among critics and an epic flop at the box office, but that’s not stopping it from cleaning up on the awards circuit.

The latest prize the Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle movie picked up was a Supporting Actress of the Year award for Kate Winslet at this weekend’s Critics’ Circle Film Awards in London. Winslet, who has already earned a Golden Globe for the role, stars in the movie as legendary PR guru Joanna Hoffman.

Michael Fassbender was also nominated for Actor of the Year, Aaron Sorkin for Screenwriter of the Year, and editor Elliott Graham for, well, editing, although none of them won their respective categories. Fassbender and Winslet were additionally in the running for British/Irish Actor/Actress Of The Year as general prizes for movies released in 2015, but failed to win.

Steve Jobs has so far racked up three BAFTA nominations, won an International Star prize for Michael Fassbender at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, the aforementioned Golden Globe for Kate Winslet, and more.

With Winslet in the running for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, she’s surely got to be a favorite by now!

    “Winslet, who has already earned a Golden Globe for the role, stars in the movie as legendary PR guru Joanna Hoffman.”

    I must have been living under a stone for the last 3 decades. Either that or something else is amiss. Perhaps it is just that I do not know any legends, even though I spend at least 8 hours daily online.

    PS. Who is Joanna Hoffman again?

    Oh, yes. “Legendary in her own lunchbox.” “Legendary in her own closed circle of employ.”

      To be fair, it’s an Apple blog and she was an enormously important part of the original Macintosh launch, probably the most significant personal computer that’s ever been released. “Legendary” may be overstating it, but she’s pretty darn important as far as Apple history goes.

      You have been living under a stone if you spend 8 hours of your day online.

        Kindly care to explain the basis of this your rationalisation?
