For your consideration
Awards season kicked off properly this week, with the Oscar nominations and Golden Globe Awards (and Critics' Choice Awards).
Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel were named the best films by the Globes judges and both picked up nods from the Academy a few days later.

"You can create this stuff, George, but you sure can't direct it"
George Lucas didn't pick up an Academy nomination (or much love from the fans) when he directed the three Star Wars prequels.
He perhaps wisely handed over the reins to Jj Abrams for the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII, but this week
Conventional thought has it that in the early years of the relationship, the parent-child covenant is almost exclusively a one-way street.

Britain's Youngest Carers (Channel 4) met just a few of the "hidden army of young carers" that have taken on the job of looking after their ill and disabled parents and loved ones.

The season finale kicks off as interest in The Opposite of Us intensifies when the script becomes the subject of a bidding war. As a result, Beverly (Tamsin Greig) struggles to keep Sean (Stephen Mangan) focused on returning to London.
The Jls member will present the one-off programme Britain's Youngest Carers, in which he will meet young carers who look after their parents every day.

Humes was confirmed as Emma Willis's co-presenter for series three of The Voice last month. The pair will replace original hosts Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates.
Speaking to Digital Spy at the Pride of Britain Awards this week, Williams stated that Humes "will be great" on the BBC show, but admitted that he is not tempted to follow him into presenting.
"My brother's killing it. He's doing everything, he's taking over," he said. "It's amazing to see. Marvin's got many talents.

The former Changing Rooms star said that he is often asked why he has never appeared on the BBC dancing series.

The presenter will front the Saturday night Strictly Come Dancing rival, which sees celebrities team up with their real-life partners in an attempt to master a different genre of dance each week.
McCall said that the show's in-depth look at the contestants' relationships will set it apart from other dance programmes.
