Trek At The AwardsBy Christian

It's been a mixed week for Star Trek on the awards circuit this last week. The most publicized ceremony, of course, the Golden Globes, saw only a couple of winners with previous roles in Star Trek, despite a number of nominations. Kelsey Grammer (Captain Morgan Bateson, TNG`s 'Cause and Effect') of Frasier again walked away with 'best performance by an actor in a television series - musical or comedy', while 'Gladiator', co-written by Trek X scribe John Logan claimed 'best motion picture - drama'. The good news at the Globes ends there, however, with Kim Cattrall (Lieutenant Valeris, 'The Undiscovered Country'), Alfre Woodard (Lily Sloane 'First Contact`) and Christopher Plummer (Chang, 'The Undiscovered Country`) all missing out in their respective categories.
Meanwhile, despite last-minute urgings from her official site for people to vote, neither Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) nor Susanna Thompson (the Borg Queen) earned final nominations for Supporting Actress of the Year in a Drama Series at the annual TV Guide awards.
And last, but certainly not least, Voyager two-part episode 'Unimatrix Zero' has recieved nomination for Oustanding Sound Mixing by the Cinema Audio Society. The awards will be presented on March 3 at the Sheraton Universal in Universal City, California, and Voyager will share nomination with series such as 'The Sopranos' and 'The West Wing'.
