Has been once more

William Shatner scoops Golden Globe.

William Shatner has confounded his critics and won a best actor Globe for his role in new drama Boston Legal.

Shatner recently released an album entitled Has Been, with a title track that criticised critics that claimed his career was washed up. Now he has silenced those critics – firstly by receiving rave reviews for his album, and secondly for his role in Boston Legal.

The award completes a double for the actor – He won an Emmy last year for the playing the part of Denny Crane in one episode of The Practice. His Globe win honours Shatner's success in turning that guest part into a major character in The Practice spin-off show.

Someone with another 15 minutes of fame is former Lois Lane Teri Hatcher. She won the best actress in a television drama award for her role as Susan Meyer in Desperate Housewives.
