Actress Kate Winslet and Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin picked up Golden Globe awards for their respective work in the movie Steve Jobs at the recent event, and that was widely seen as a prediction that the movie would be nominated in a number of categories for the upcoming Academy Awards presentation. The nominations are out, with Michael Fassbender picking up one for Best Actor in a Leading Role and Kate Winslet lined up for a second major win as Best Actress in a Supporting Role.
Left out of the Oscar nods was Aaron Sorkin, probably because there is no category for "Best Fictional Screenplay Based Loosely on Real Events" in the Academy Awards. Likewise, Daniel Pemberton's score for the film was overlooked in the Oscar nominations, while it was in the running for the Golden Globes but lost out to Ennio Morricone's score for Hateful Eight.
Fassbender was nominated in 2013 for his supporting role in 12 Years A Slave, while Winslet has been nominated six times before -- most notably for her roles in Titanic and Sense and Sensibility.
The Oscars will be handed out live on Sunday, February 28 starting at 7 PM ET on ABC.
