The film, which hit cinema screens in September, captures the dramatic rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda as they battled for the 1976 Formula 1 World Championship.
Its opposition for the award comes from 12 Years a Slave, Captain Phillips, Gravity and Philomena. Nominations were revealed today on the Golden Globes website.
Meanwhile Daniel Brühl’s widely acclaimed portrayal of three-time F1 champion Niki Lauda has netted him a nomination 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).
The German actor was also recently nominated in the same category for the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
‘Rush’ will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on January 27th.
