William Shatner to be honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award
Best known as Captain Kirk from the original Star Trek, William Shatner will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2010 Banff Rockie Awards. With a career spanning more than 5 decades, Shatner has leveraged his fame to build enduring properties as a director, producer, author, recording artist, screenwriter and spokesperson.
A brand unto himself, Shatner's next project is the recently announced Sh*t My Dad Says, based on the popular Twitter account that's infamous for quotes like "A parent's only as good as their dumbest kid. If one wins a Nobel Prize but the other gets robbed by a hooker, you failed."
Register now to learn from William as he shares thoughts and lessons from his career in an interview open to all nextMEDIA Banff delegates, exploring his path to success in multiple arenas.

So, my boss is going here. Our AGM is held at Banff every year, but I don't get to go. Sadf. Still, The Shat! He (boss-man) was so excited when he found out Shatner would be there - he's a huge Shatner fan (as am I, not that I let it be known at the office.)
Also, a little OT from this post, boss-man was talking to a friend about the new movie (he just saw it. *facepalm*) and was RAVING about "the guy who plays James Tiberius". Apparently "Bones was alright, but that guy who plays James Tiberius man - he just knocked it out of the park!" So apparently it's only the awards people who hate the movie, because the industry loves it.
