Ron Howard’s Formula 1 feature RUSH – which charts the 1976 World Championship battle between James Hunt and Niki Lauda – has earned two further major film award nominations.
The movie has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Picture (Drama)’ category in the Golden Globe Awards, while Daniel Brühl, who brilliantly played Lauda in the movie, has been nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category.
This follow on from the film’s two nominations – for Best Supporting Actor and Best Stunt Ensemble – at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, which were confirmed earlier this week.
The Golden Globes are awarded each year by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, an organisation of 90 working film journalists who cover the US entertainment industry for media outlets in over fifty countries. The winners will be announced at its televised dinner event on January 12, six days before the SAG Awards ceremony.
The two award events form the lead-up to the Academy Awards, whose nominees will be announced on January 14.
