‘Steve Jobs’ Award Wins Continue for Kate Winslet at BAFTA Ceremony

Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs film continued its awards season wins last night, with Kate Winslet taking home the Best Supporting Actress award at The British Academy of Film and Television Arts on Sunday (via The Guardian). Winslet dedicated her win at the BAFTA ceremony to women who are the subject of unjustified body shame criticism, which she faced as a young woman trying to break into the industry.

“When I was younger, when I was 14, I was told by a drama teacher that I might do OK if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts,” Winslet said. “So what I always feel in these moments is that any young woman who has ever been put down by a teacher, by a friend, by even a parent, just don’t listen to any of it, because that’s what I did – I kept on going and I overcame my fears and got over my insecurities.”

Winslet won for Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globes in January as well, while Steve Jobs screenwriter Aaron Sorkin won for Best Screenplay. With a Golden Globe and now a BAFTA win, Winslet is set up to be a likely winner at the 88th Academy Awards taking place Sunday, February 28. At the Oscars, she will face all of the same actresses she beat at the BAFTA ceremony: Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), Rooney Mara (Carol), and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina), with the addition of Rachel McAdams (Spotlight).

Steve Jobs, which faced a troubled theatrical run following its poor box office performance, will be released on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD tomorrow, February 16.

Apple TV 4 Orders Begin Shipping for October 30 Delivery

Roughly 24 hours after orders for the new Apple TV began shifting to „Preparing for Shipment“ status, Apple has begun notifying customers that their orders have shipped. Early reports so far all appear to be from Australia where it is currently the afternoon of October 29, and deliveries are scheduled for Friday, October 30. Shipment notifications for customers in other countries should begin rolling out in the coming hours as the clocks roll around into business hours on Thursday.

Apple began taking orders for the Apple TV on Monday, with the earliest deliveries being quoted Friday, October 30 arrival dates. Apple’s own retail stores are also expected to begin carrying the new Apple TV on Friday, with other retailers such as Best Buy apparently not seeing availability until next week.

Press reviews of the new Apple TV landed just a few hours ago, with the new set-top box generally receiving a positive response for its evolutionary advances, although it does not yet completely remake the television experience as many have been hoping for Apple to do for a number of years. One key feature of the new Apple TV is the tvOS App Store, however, and we’ve yet to really see how developers will embrace the new platform that opens up apps to the living room.

(Thanks, Rogan!)
