Ron Howard’s Rush, the big-screen adaptation of the 1976 Formula 1 title battle between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, hopes to add some hardware to back up its widespread critical acclaim at tonight’s Golden Globe Awards. Daniel Bruhl (Lauda) is nominated in the Supporting Actor category, while the movie is also among the nominees for Best Motion Picture – Drama. The Golden Globes, which are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, often presage voting for the more widely publicized Academy Awards’ Oscars.
The 71st Golden Globe Awards show will air live on NBC Sunday night from the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, starting at 8 p.m. ET. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the show.
Since its Sept. 20 release, Rush has grossed more than $90 million worldwide, including $27m in the U.S., according to figures compiled by BoxOfficeMojo.com.
