**Voting is now closed. Winners will be announced after tonight's event....**

You can still vote for Best Soap til noon on Monday 26 September here

... but all other categories are now closed to the public vote. These are the EastEnders cast members and storylines that have made the shortlist.

Winners will be announced on Monday 26 September. Good luck to all of the nominees!

Best and Sexiest Male


*Wolf whistle* Scott Maslen is up for two gongs - best and sexiest male for smouldering in the guise of Jack Branning

Best Actress

When Kat Moon stomped back to the Square last September, drama wasn't far behind. So it's no suprise that Jessie Wallace is up for Best Actress this year.

Sexiest Female

After numerous steamy rendez vous onscreen with Max *and* Greg this year, Jo Joyner has earned her Sexiest Female stripes with this nomination.

Best Young Actress

Her portrayal of the Square's pint-sized princess, Tiffany Butcher, earns Maisie Smith a nomination for Best Young Actress.

Best Newcomer

 Up for Best Newcomer, Michael Moon (played by Steve 'The Eyebrow' Shepherd) has been tireless in the menacing of as many Walford residents as you can shake a stick at since arriving in October.

Funniest Performance

EastEnders has two nominations in this category with Tameka Empson (Kim Fox) and Gillian Wright (Jean Slater) both clowning it out for Funniest Performance.

Best Wedding

They had two ceremonies (greedy), so it stands to reason that Tamwar and Afia's nuptials are up for Best Wedding.

Best Dramatic Performance

His moving depiciton of Phil's dramatic descent into drugs has earned Steve McFadden a Best Dramatic Performance nomination.

Best Exit


Goodbyes are always hard, but Stacey's departure from the Square was a real tear-jerker. Lacey Turner is up for Best Exit for her leaving storyline.

Best Soap

Watch this space! This is the only category where voting is still open. Have you chosen your favourite? Voting closes at noon on Monday 26 September.

    I do think Scott Maslen should be best actor, he has been really good this year. With the whole Ronnie baby-swap story line he excelled in his acting, as for sexiest male, well he's a good looking bloke but I've never felt the attraction, but that's me. I think I need someone a bit more bad-boy (it used to be Micheal but then he got freaky, turn off!). I think Niel McDermott (Ryan) should have been sexiest male, he's hot. Of course Jessie Wallace she be best actress and anyone who thinks anything else must be nuts (sorry if you do think something else), she's funny, she's great at acting sad (although I wish she had some happier story lines, seiriously Eastenders) and she has great chemistry with Shane Richie (Alfie)! By the way, I heard Mandy might try and steal Alfie from Kat in a soap magazine! Does anyone know if this is true? If it is I'm going to clunk the person who thought of it round the head! Jo Joyner is a good looking woman but she's aging (gracefully I'll admit) and she might not be able to compete with younger girls. @Shamzii, I agree that poppy should have been put up but I think with Afia, why hasn't SHE got a mention? And personally I don't think Vanessa is very attractive at all. Aww! Tiffany is so cute and the girl who plays her (Masie Smith) is a very talented actress and should win hands down! Her acting in the Carol and Connor story was brilliant (although I never did like Connor and thought they made a hideous couple!). Moving on, I liked Micheal at first though not anymore but it's the acting they're meant to be judging so I think he's got this in the bag. Steve John Sheperd does a brilliant, all be it slightly creepy portrail of damaged Micheal so he's a dead cert for best newcomer. Kim is soooooooo funny, I love her although Jean creeps me out a little. I think Tameka Empson will win. Tam and Afia are the cutest couple on earth and they have real chemistry, plus they've had TWO weddings so if one dosen't win the other is bound too. As for Steve Macfadden as best dramatic performence I'm not convinced, I think Lacey Turner in her DRAMATIC exit was much better and to be honest I think Steve has outplayed the roll. I used to think of Phil as hardest of the hard but now I just think of him as a pathetic little man and whenever he calls Ian Beal a weasel I always think of him as the weasel but since he's Eastenders only chance I'll support him, Team EE! And finally, the desicion I totally support, Stacey Slaters exit! Lacey Turner portrayed the best
