My Pleasure! Why he has not been given the AFI is a shame - tpp bad Spielberg did not use him in the TZ movie to redo his classic appearances on the seriers
Yep, but in his early days he was everywhere, before that Captain's chair, and he worked with this guy, who by all accounts was no slouch at crafting a film or two
He hasn't been given an AFI Lifetime Achievement award because he isn't a film actor/director.My Pleasure! Why he has not been given the AFI is a shame - tpp bad Spielberg did not use him in the TZ movie to redo his classic appearances on the seriers
Nah he still deserves the award - what a tough crowd yikes! Love ya though always!He hasn't been given an AFI Lifetime Achievement award because he isn't a film actor/director.
How hard is that to understand?
Apart from the Star Trek films (and four or five very, very minor character roles), his entire career is in TV.
He has done so much over the years - the work he did in the 5 of the six original cast trek films alone deserves recognition he may never get an Academy Award but AFI yes === they do not seem to have a rule of how many films you need to your credit to get the award. To David has the Emmy Awards honored Shatner?That's being a bit unfair to his career. Shatner has done dozens of dramatic and comedic roles in films long before and after Trek. Check out 1961's "The Intruder" and the 1965 film "Incubus" to see prime examples of his dramatic chops. "Incubus" was even done in the constructed language Esperanto. Try learning your lines in a new language!
