The latest Gurus of Gold multi-category chart has Steve Jobs‘ Michael Fassbender in the lead for Best Actor Oscar. Even if you put aside Fassbender’s reported reluctance to campaign, he’s certain to lose this standing before long due to the fact that (a) the movie is a commercial stiff and (b) there are things to dislike about it from a critical-aesthetic perspective, the most prominent of these being the toxic dislikability of Fassbender’s Jobs character. I liked Jobs on the page but I didn’t like him when Fassbender stepped into his shoes….sorry. Honestly? Winning is an impossibility at this stage, and Fassbender even being nominated may become an iffy thing down the road. Or maybe not. I don’t know everything. But I’m certain that the bloom is off and it’s probably all downhill from here on.
