Very Cool.

Bring back Amanda via transporter anomaly.
Watched Macbeth on PBS, very intense.

Fantastic! Sir Pat, winona! Truely the best of both worlds!

Congratulations Sir Patrick. It is a shame you didn’t win for TNG. You certainly deserved it.

UK viewers, Macbeth’s on BBC iPlayer for the next few days – I highly recommend it!

another slow Trek news day.

Well done to both though.

A rather tenuous link between Ryder and Trek though. She might have been Spock’s mater in ST XI, but is she really Trek?

… uh-oh, I might started something here…

missed the word “have” there.

Booze and keyboards. A fabulous combination!

Saw this the other night, he was brilliant. Macduff was a bit wooden but Sir Pat and Kate Fleetwood who played Lady Macbeth were the best I’ve seen

#7. Agreed. Two minutes of screen time and she’s a Trek veteran? I think not.

#7, 10. She’s ON FILM, so she’s cannon (Alt time line or not) so piss off on dogging the woman. She’s doing alot better for herself in life than she was 10-15 years ago… /rant off.

I saw Macbeth on PBS when it aired (outside of the huge lag and freeze-pauses during the airing. I’m very not into the classics but i was so engrossed with the premise that i spent several hours on wiki reading about Macbeth… very cool sh*t, that Comrad Mabeth. I really enjoyed that WWII Russia vib…

isn’t Ryder a bit young for SAG?

I’m in love with Winona Ryder.

Well, Patrick’s been nominated at least twice before for the SAG awards – from memory, for Star Trek in about 1995 and then again for A Christmas Carol.

Let’s hope third time lucky.


I was hoping that David Tennant might get some recognition for his portrayal in Macbeth with a SAG nomination.

Sorry for the mistake, I was thinking David Tennant should have got a SAG nomination for Hamlet and not Macbeth as he wasn’t in it, although Patrick. alongside for his nomination in Macbeth deserved a second nomination for Hamlet.

14, the nomination wouldn’t have been in ’95. Generations was ’94, and First Contact was ’96.

^ It was. 1995 was the first SAG awards (according to Wikipedia).

Patrick was nominated in the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series category.

Dennis Franz won for NYPD Blue.

The other nominees were:

Hector Elizondo – Chicago Hope
Mandy Patinkin – Chicago Hope
Tom Skerritt – Picket Fences
Patrick Stewart – Star Trek: The Next Generation

Fair enough. I often forget that most award shows air in the subsequent year. So it was for the 1994 season (and, given the way TV nominations work, probably specifically for All Good Things…)

Thanks for that.

You set me off searching to make sure.

Much appreciated.
