There’s no Best Adapted Screenplay nomination for Aaron Sorkin for his “Steve Jobs” box-office flop.

Steve Jobs lead actor Michael Fassbender was nominated for Best Actor for his portrayal of a character purporting to be Steve Jobs. Kate Winslet, who has already won the Golden Globe for her portrayal of a character purporting to be former Apple marketing chief Joanna Hoffman, received a Best Supporting Actress nomination.

Sorkin won best screenplay for Steve Jobs at the Golden Globes on Sunday, but was completely left out of the writing categories for the upcoming Academy Awards.

The best adapted screenplay nominees instead are The Big Short, Brooklyn, Carol, The Martian and Room.

MacDailyNews Take: No Best Adapted Screenplay nomination for Aaron Sorkin for Steve Jobs fictional box-office flop – and rightly so. He didn’t “adapt” anything. It’s nothing more than a fiction masquerading as a “biopic.”

That Steve Jobs flick is SJINO.

Sorkin’s screenplay is garbage precisely because it opportunistically trades on Steve Jobs’ name. If Sorkin had done as the multitudinously more talented and intelligent Orson Welles did with Citizen Kane, and named the film something else, using invented names for his invented characters who spouted his invented, increasingly tiresome pitter-patter dialog, we might have a different opinion. Alas, Sorkin et al. were not confident enough to do so. Instead, they chose the easy way over the right path. They chose to profit off of a dead man’s name, blemishing his legacy (for the twelve people who saw it), in order to peddle their concoctions.
