A special message from MSN:

While Christmas is a time of joy for most of us, that's not the case for the UK's most vulnerable children and young people. We've partnered with giving platform Benevity to raise funds for two charities - the NSPCC and The Children's Society – to try to help change that. You can help make a difference - please donate now.

The Golden Globes have once again shut out female directors in three major categories, including Best Director and both Best Motion Picture categories. It’s par for the course for the annual event, which has only ever nominated five women for Best Director in its 90-year history, with only Barbra Streisand (a two-time nominee) going home with a win for her “Yentl.” Last year, Greta Gerwig’s lauded “Lady Bird” won the Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy statuette, but the first-time filmmaker was not nominated for her directing and her film was the only one directed by a woman to earn a nod in those three major categories.

Cat Stevens, now known as Yusuf Islam, Jeff Lynne of the Electric Light Orchestra, folk artist John Prine, R&B singer Lloyd Price, and rocker Tommy James are also shortlisted for the honour, according to The Associated Press. Meanwhile, George Strait collaborator Dean Dillon, Jack Tempchin, who wrote Eagles classic Peaceful Easy Feeling, and Dallas Austin, who crafted chart hits for the likes of TLC, Madonna, Pink, Monica, and Boyz II Men, are featured nominees in the non-performing category, and the non-performing songwriting duos up for recognition include P.F.

The nomination news marks the second consecutive year Mariah Carey, Chrissy Hynde, and reggae star Jimmy Cliff have been shortlisted.

A number of female-directed films have already earned major awards buzz this season, including Debra Granik, Tamara Jenkins, and Lynne Ramsay, who all recently earned Best Director nods from the Indie Spirit Awards last month. Other films directed by women did manage to crack into the acting categories, including Karyn Kusama’s “Destroyer,” which earned Nicole Kidman a Best Actress nod in the Drama category, along with Marielle Heller’s “Can You Ever Forgive Me?,” which snagged nominations for star Melissa McCarthy in the Best Actress Drama category as well, along with Richard E. Grant in the Best Supporting Actor category.
