WHY IT'S OSCAR-WORTHY: Ron Howard is no stranger to the Academy. His last effort Frost/Nixon was nominated for Best Picture. While biopics are a favorite of the Oscars, Rush should stir particular emotions as the film will chronicle the life of Formula 1 champion driver Niki Lauda (Hemsworth) and the 1976 crash that almost claimed his life.
