    Some weak nominees this year imo. Steve John Shepherd, Linda Henry and Samantha Womack should have all made the list! Lacey Turner has only been back five minutes and therefore I don't think she deserves to be nominated on this one.

    The nominations are pretty good this year but i'm pretty disappointed that Michael French a.k.a David Wicks hasn't been nominated for best actor, as in my opinion, he's definitely outshined all the other actors since his arrival in September. He's had so many great storylines and he's been amazing, especially with Lindsey (Carol). Also, the sexiest male category is pretty weak, and no doubt the boys from Hollyoaks or even Emmerdale will take home that prize. I mean, Mick Carter?! If you put Wicksy on that list, he'd have stood a chance! As for the best actor category, I think it's pretty disappointing and I think the wrong people were nominated. Mick Carter has only been on the square since boxing day and not appeared much since the Johnny coming out storyline, Ian Beale is a good contender as he's been on EastEnders since it began so he deserves an award, and Nitin who plays Masood was great, especially when he was displaying how the death of his mum/split from Carol affected him turning him to alcohol and gambling. I'm not sure Stacey should have been nominated for best actress, considering she's only been back for a few weeks and has hardly appeared in any scenes as she's always leaving and coming back. Lindsey should definitely win because of how well she's playing her role in the breast cancer storyline but she'll no doubt lose to Julie Hesmondhalgh. I'm not sure why Denise has been nominated, unless she's starting a big storyline soon (could be related to the Lucy storyline happening throughout these next couple of months?)

    sam womack and charlie brooks (ronnie and janine) should have been nominated for best actress. they had the bigger and memorable storylines and viewers are more likely to vote for them over denise, stacey and carol.

    sexiest female none are my type as i am gay but none of the males are my type either. i wanted Max Branning, Johnny Carter or Danny Pennant (Gary Lucy) to be nominated.

    best actor should have had Steve John Shepard (michael moon) nominated.

    i dont know who made these mistakes but they might have cost eastenders some big awards,

    Sexiest female: Very tough decision as they're all so beautiful. But I'd have to say... Lauren.
    Sexiest male: Peter, tough choice between Peter and Mick.
    Best actress: Carol. Stacey hasn't been in long enough and Carols acting with her cancer storyline is brilliant.
    Best Actor: Definitely Masood, he's earned it a lot lately.
    Best Villain: It's hardly going to be Sam... So I'd have to say Janine, as always, she's a superb actress. It's a shame she's gone.

    They're my votes anyway. I have no idea why Denise and Sam are even in the selections, both of them haven't done much at all.

    They didn't choose a very good selection did they?! Don't get me wrong, I love Stacey, but she's only been back five minutes so I don't understand why Lacey's up for best actress just yet?! I personally think Samantha Womack should be nominated for best actress, or at least best villian instead of that stupid Sam who nobody even cared about. Also, where's Shirley?! Oh well, I suppose Coronation St will continue its winning streak for this year!- Hopefully this time next year EastEnders will be in an even better place, as it's improved massively since DCT joined the show.... Then maybe it will reclaim its rightful place as the best soap on TV! Also, hopefully Danny Dyer will win something, I think he deserves to!
