Daniel Bruhl is on track to earn his first Oscar nomination: would you hit it?


Here are some new photos of your boyfriend Daniel Bruhl in London yesterday. He was filming The Face of an Angel, which I believe is the same film he was recently filming in Italy, with model Cara Delevingne. Yes, Cara Delevingne and Daniel Bruhl in the same film. I don’t get it either. Anyway, I’m writing this because I thought these photos of Daniel were nice, although I’m personally not all about him. I’ve seen him in a handful of films and I think he’s talented and all, but he doesn’t get me all hot and bothered. Still, I know he does it for many of you, so I’m Donging It Forward. I would not hit it, but I would introduce it to you ladies so you could bang him.

I also wanted to point out something interesting: at this point in the awards season, Daniel is as much of a “sure thing” for an Oscar nomination as Jared Leto and Michael Fassbender. For his work in Rush, Daniel has been nominated for a SAG, a Golden Globe, and of this morning, a BAFTA. He’s also been nominated for a handful of critics’ awards, and he even won the Santa Barbara Film Festival award for Best Supporting Actor. There’s some debate about just who should make the Oscar shortlist, and I just find it interesting that Daniel has gotten all the same nominations as Fassbender and Leto. I still think the main race will be between Leto & Fassy, but it will be nice to see Daniel get his first Oscar nomination too, right? He’s now a big deal. Or, a BIGGER deal.

Part of the reason that Daniel’s many awards nominations have flown under the radar is perhaps because he seems like a genuinely shy, quiet kind of guy who isn’t in this for fame or accolades. When he got his Globe & SAG noms, he gave a shy, sweet interview to USA Today, saying that in most parts of Europe, “People call me Niki Lauda here. They don’t call me Daniel.” Yay!

    I don’t think I would have hit him until I read your description of him. So now he’s a definite ‘maybe’ instead of me not noticing him at all…

    • LilyRose says:

      as other have said Goodbye Lenin, The Educators, Salvador and the only good thing about Intruders. He was the cute Polish boy in Ladies in Lavender. He is a native speaker of both German and Spanish, plus Catalan and speaks French and English. It’s so nice to see him get some recognition, though I doubt he’ll get an Oscar nomination but I hope he does.

  3. Jessica says:

    I loved him in Rush, he was the best part of that movie, and definitely had the better role (over Hemsworth). I’m glad he’s getting recognition for it.

    • aquarius64 says:

      Too bad Hemsworth is not getting recognition for Rush, but I give him credit for trying to stretch as an actor.

      • Mairead says:

        Well, he was a bit of an also-ran in the film unfortunately. He wasn’t bad, but Hunt’s character was one-dimensional and Thor himself was outclassed by Brühl. He wasn’t bad at all, but was unevenly matched.

    • Mairead says:

      Absolutely – he absolutely stole the show. The fact that he had all the best lines, even the ones he didn’t speak himself, certainly helped. And he completely nailed Niki Lauda. It’s the best biopic performance I’ve seen in years, Michael Douglas as Liberace notwithstanding (although Hanks was an excellent Uncle Walt,p).

  4. magda says:

    love, love him since Goodbye Lenin.

  5. Kristen says:

    Oh my gosh! It’s the kid from Goodbye, Lenin!

  6. loveisthecoal says:

    YES. Thank you for Donging It Forward! 😀

  7. T.fanty says:

    I totally would. Look at that smile. He’s adorable.

  8. Delorb says:

    Nope! Not even with a bullet proof vagina. Too short and regular looking.

    • Dani2 says:

      Lol @ “bullet proof vagina”

    • QQ says:

      ROTFL and then there is that Pubey looking neckbeard situation which is the hallmark of the great nice guy redditor unwashed masses: NO

      Not of I was broke and he paid

  9. Scar says:

    Ugh, yes, even with the “rat teeth” that were supposed to make him look ugly in Rush and only made him look extra charming to me.

  10. Chloe says:

    He was great in Rush, I think that the only reason he wouldn’t get an oscar nomination is because Rush wasn’t a huge hit (although I really like it, but I’m a race fan), kudos to Ron Howard for getting some emotion from Hemsworth too! As for looks I think he’s a chameleon on looks, he doesn’t do much for me, but he’s a good actor which trumps looks.

    • harpreet says:

      But is wasn’t a flop either, it made $100 million roughly on a 30$ million budget.

      I really think Americans who passed on it because it was set in the F1 world did themselves a great disservice.

  11. stellalovejoydiver says:

    I love him, but no probably not.I’ll save myself for Alexander Fehling, if you are interested in hot german actors you should check him out. Anyway yay, get that Oscar nom bb.

    • lourdesdx says:

      Oh my god,I absolutely love Der Fehling.My love for him is immense.

    • LilyRose says:

      I am a fan of German cinema. August Diehl is one of my favorites, Fehling was cute in Inglorious Basterds . Love Max Riemelt and Florian David Fitz. Karoline Herfurth, David Kross, Matthias whatshisface… you get the idea.

      • Spooks says:

        Out of the ones you’ve mentioned, FDFitz and August Diehl are my favourites. Florian and Karoline were in Vincent Will Meer, and it was such a good movie. Has anyone seen it?

      • LilyRose says:

        I loved that movie. FDFitz wrote and directed Jesus Loves Me, which is not what it sounds like but a romcom about Jesus coming back to Earth and falling in love. I haven’t seen it yet but really want to.

      • Spooks says:

        I saw the trailer to Jesus Liebt Mich, it looks good.
        Speaking of FDFitz, I saw Männerherzen and Doctor’s Diary, and loved them both.

        I started watching German movies because I LOVE the language, but now I’m hooked. They’re really good.

      • LilyRose says:

        I have a list of movies I want to watch for when/if I find them. They are hard to come by in South America. I saw Männerherzen but have not seen DD. I think some of these films wouldn’t seem out of place in the US. Männerherzen is like Sex and the City with dudes. But then you get things like The Counterfiters, The Lives of Others, The Wave and so on. The production values are quite high and you find a variety of genre films, light romcoms and buddy-whatever films, as opposed to countries on my end that produce 12 movies a year if they are lucky.

        I’ve also found some interesting Scandinavian movies to add to that list: Kon-Tiki, Amnesia (which is being remade for US audiences). The Hunt is also on that list.

      • Valois says:

        Matthias Schweighöfer <3

        Spooks, you might enjoy Türkisch für Anfänger- it was written by the guy who did DD.

  12. InVain says:

    Yes….I even crushed on him dressed up like a Nazi. Yikes.

  13. ray says:

    YES. except i felt real bad about having a crush on a nazi in inglorious basterds…

    • Hautie says:

      Since that was the first movie I notice him in… I automatically think “hey that’s the cute Nazi” from that Tarantino film!

      It is the same though for Eli Roth… “hey it’s the cute Bear Jew”! I never notice him till that film either. That film really did put a lot of new actors in my vision, that I had never notice before.

      Like, Til Schweiger. 🙂

    • Lucy says:

      Ugh, I HATED him so freaking much in it!!! As in, he was fantastic. His character was a piece of shit. Don’t know if I’d hit it, but I definitely need to see more of him!!

  14. m says:

    Loved him in Inglorious Bastards and loved him in Rush. Leto will take him the little gold man but this one and Fassy are worthy nominees.
    And yes 10/10 would bang. There is something adorably European about him.

  15. magpie says:


  16. Teeny says:

    Maybe. He doesn’t photograph well at all, but he has been amazing in everything I have seen him in. I’m a sucker for men who speak other languages, and for me, the fact that he can speak something like 4 languages is a panty dropper. Something about his eyes makes him seem a bit arrogant though, I can’t put my finger on it.

  17. anon says:

    Based soley on looks, YES! Look at that adorable lopsided smile!

  18. TheOriginalWaffle says:

    Yes! More Daniel Bruhl! Saw _Rush_ twice and would see it again in a heartbeat.

  19. Irishserra says:

    I don’t think I’d seen him before until last week, when he was in some French film I saw and I thought he was adorable.

  20. Laura says:

    I’ve been crushin’ on him since Goodbye Lenin!

  21. Gin Princess says:

    Yes. Daily and nightly, and ever so rightly…

  22. eliza says:

    He was by far the best thing about Rush. Make that the only thing worth watching the movie for. He transformed himself. Loved his performance. Yes to Oscar nom and yes to hitting that! A 1000 times yes!

  23. Valois says:

    He seems like a really nice guy- there’s never been a single rumor about him being an a*hole or anything like that. He was in a relationship with a (rather famous) German actress and they were pretty low-key and his new gf is a regular student- he seems se down to earth (:

  24. Gia says:

    OMG!! I knew I recognized him but couldn’t put my finger on it. He’s way that weasley German soldier in Inglorious Bastards! Woooooow. He looks better au natural

  25. a says:

    he used to go out in the same circles at me. he is a complete and utter douche. he hits on everything that is not on a tree by the count of 3 and talks a lot of desperate bullcrap. i really don’t get what anybody sees in him.

  26. Ariel says:

    YES anytime, anywhere! I’ve seen him in Inglourious Basterds, Goodbye Lenin!, Joyeux Noel, The Edukators, Eva, The Countess (he was naked in a bed in this one ladies, yowsa!), and I’ve pre-ordered Rush because I didn’t see it in theatres in time. Obsessed much? YES!!
