Steve Jobs took home the Golden Globe for best screenplay, motion picture, on Sunday night.
Sceenwriter Aaron Sorkin beat out Emma Donoghue (Room), Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer (Spotlight), Charles Randolph, Adam McKay (The Big Short) and Quentin Tarantino (The Hateful Eight) to win the award.
Daddy’s Home co-stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg presented the trophy to Sorkin, who began by thanking Universal’s Donna Langley and the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
“Honest to God, I thought I has as much chance of winning the screenplay award tonight as I had of winning best actress in a musical,” he said at the podium. “And thank you most of all to Danny Boyle and this incredible cast: Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet — who you’ve already honored so beautifully tonight — Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston. I could not be more proud of this movie. Thank you all very, very much. This is a great surprise and a terrific compliment for all of us.
Sorkin ended his acceptance speech with a light-hearted shout-out to his daughter, Roxy. “I love you. Everything I do, I do to impress you. And boys are bad,” he joked.
Ricky Gervais hosted the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards, which took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday.
