Steve Jobs won two Golden Globes on Sunday, with Kate Winslet taking home the Best Supporting Actress award, and Aaron Sorkin receiving the award for Best Screenplay.

Sorkin, in accepting that award, offered up a comment that acknowledged the film’s less than stellar performance at the box office:

The title of the movie changed to ‘Box Office Failure Steve Jobs’ after its third week. It took some of the air out of the pride that we were feeling. We didn’t want that to be the epithet of the movie. This is just very, very nice.

The movie reportedly had estimated production and marketing costs of around $60 million, meaning the film would have been required to make around $120 million just to break even. So far, the U.S. box office amounts to around $17.7 million. (The Guardian)

The film was badmouthed by many of Jobs’ closest friends and co-workers, including his widow, Laureen Powell Jobs, and current Apple CEO Tim Cook. Powell Jobs was reportedly offered a chance to be included in the film’s production, and to be on set, but her disdain for the Walter Isaacson biography – which the biopic is based on – led her to refuse the offer.

Steve Jobs” will see a home video release in February, with a digital launch on February 2, and it will hit retailer’s shelves on physical media on February 16.
