Ron Howard’s Rush has received a prestigious Golden Globe nomination as Best Drama.

In the awards, backed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, best film is split into the Drama and Comedy/Musical categories, so it does not represent a direct reflection of what might happen at the Academy Awards. However given that 10 films are nominated for the Best Picture Oscar Rush has a good chance of making the shortlist.

The film’s Golden Globe opposition comes from 12 Years a Slave, Captain Phillips, Gravity and Philomena.

Meanwhile Daniel Bruhl, who played Niki Lauda, has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor. He will be up against Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Bradley Cooper (American Hustle), Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave) and Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club).

Bruhl was also nominated this week in the same category for the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The Oscar nominations will be announced on January 16, with Rush strongly tipped to feature in many of the technical categories, such as sound, make-up and editing.

  1. So happy with the nominations this year and for 12 Years A Slave. Great movie. I do think that The Butler was snubbed though. I personally thought it was a great film and Oprah’s performance was outstanding.
