Shatner Nominated Again For An Emmy

William Shatner has been nominated for the fifth time for his portrayal of Denny Crane.

As reported by, Denny Crane has been a good role for Shatner, leading to five Emmy nominations and two wins for playing the role, first on The Practice, as a guest star, and then on Boston Legal. His only non-Denny Crane Emmy nomination was in 1999 when he was nominated for "Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series" for his role of Stone Phillips (The Big Giant Head) on 3rd Rock from the Sun.

Shatner was nominated for the "Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series" for 2008. His competition this year is: Ted Danson (Arthur Frobisher in Damages,) Zeljko Ivanek (Ray Fiske in Damages,) Michael Emerson (Ben in Lost) and John Slattery (Roger Sterling in Mad Men).

On Shatner's website, he posted a message for his fans. "We’re in our last season of Boston Legal and what a wonderful way to leave this great television show...all these nominations. We are very proud of each other."

Other Star Trek alumni were included on this year's list as reported by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with additional information provided by They include: Bryan Fuller (Star Trek: Voyager writer/producer) whose new show Pushing Daisies was nominated twelve times and Ronald D. Moore's (Star Trek: Next Generation/Deep Space Nine writer/producer) Battlestar Galactica, which picked up six nominations. Battlestar Galactica was also nominated for "Outstanding Special Visual Effects For a Series" and amongst those listed in this category are: Doug Drexler, Gary Hutzel, David Takemura and Pierre Drolet (Star Trek: The Next Generation visual artists)

Another show with Star Trek alumni, Lost, which was co-created by J.J. Abrams (Star Trek XI and Damon Lindelof (Star Trek XI), was nominated seven times including one nomination for "Outstanding Drama Series." Bryan Burk (Star Trek XI) also works on Lost, as an executive producer.

Congrats to The Shat.
If that's his competition, he should have no problem winning.
But, of course, that's just me.
