RUSH, the Formula 1 film charting the 1976 World Championship battle between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, has picked up a further four prestigious award nominations.
The Ron Howard-directed film has been shortlisted for four EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs), which were announced overnight.
The film has already received two nominations apiece in the upcoming Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and Golden Globe Awards, with Daniel Brühl – cast as Lauda – earning a Best Supporting Actor nomination in both.
The German actor has again been nominated in the same category for the BAFTAs, all but making a certainty to receive his first Academy Awards nomination when they are announced next week.
On top of Brühl’s nomination, RUSH has also been nominated in the Outstanding British Film category, as well as in the technical categories of Best Editing and Best Sound.
The BAFTA winners will be announced on February 16.
