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.

A Star Is Born looks set to win big at the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards with Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut scooping five nominations.

The musical drama is in contention for the coveted Best Motion Picture – Drama gong and will see Cooper not only vy for Best Director, but also Best Actor for his role as singer Jackson Maine.

Lady Gaga, who is hotly tipped for awards season success, bagged herself a Best Actress nomination for her role as Ally Maine, but she will face tough competition from Glenn Close, Melissa McCarthy, Rosamund Pike and Nicole Kidman.

The film rounded off its nominations haul with Original Song for Shallow, but narrowly missed out on a Best Screenplay nod. It is tied with The Favourite and Green Book which also bagged five nominations while Vice leads the charge with six.

Cooper will face competition from Willem Dafoe, Lucas Hedges, Rami Malek and John David Washington while Ryan Gosling was snubbed for his portrayal of Neil Armstrong in First Man.

His co-star Claire Foy was among a slew of British stars who will be hoping to bring back awards after earning a nod for her role in the story of the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing.

Benedict Cumberbatch was also nominated for Patrick Melrose, Richard Madden for Bodyguard, Pike for A Private War and Olivia Colman for The Favourite.
