Golden Globes 2016: Aaron Sorkin wins Best Screenplay for Steve Jobs

Aaron Sorkin won a Golden Globe tonight for his Steve Jobs screenplay, a detailed, true-ish portrait of the adored but private Apple founder. Directed by Danny Boyle, Steve Jobs took some heat from those who knew Jobs for its less-than-flattering portrayal of him, and it largely flopped at the box office. But apparently low ticket sales don't translate into Golden Globes snubs: Kate Winslet also took home a Best Supporting Actress award tonight for her role in the film.

Sorkin was up against big writers like Quentin Tarentino (The Hateful Eight) and Charles Randolph and Adam McKay (The Big Short) for Best Screenplay. His only other Golden Globe win in the category was for 2011's The Social Network, though he has been nominated several times before. During his acceptance speech tonight, Sorkin dedicated the win to his daughter, saying, "Everything I do, I do to impress you, and boys are bad."
