The Senna movie is still in line for some major awards in the United States, despite missing out on the Oscar shortlist.


British screenwriter Manish Pandey has been nominated in the documentary category of the WGA (Writers Guild of America) awards, which take place on Feb. 19.

Meanwhile, Senna producer James Gay-Rees has been nominated in the PGA (Producers Guild of America) Awards, which take place on Jan. 21.

“Anything that brings F1 to the front, there, is a joy,” said Pandey. “Our sport should be there. The nomination is a great opportunity to brag to the US film world about how wonderful F1 is – and I shall use the opportunity to the full.”

Pandey’s competition includes legendary German director/writer Wim Wenders, nominated for his film about dancer Pina Bausch.
