    Agree with most of the nominations, but I think Pat's Death episode was ten times better than the funeral.
    And Who's Stalking Phil was such an ani climax! But I suppose that's the only mystery Eastenders has had recently.

    Best dressed should so go to Michael Moon !!

  • Comment number 3.

    I reaally hope they all win... Except Derek, I really don't like him.

    I really want
    Jo Joyner
    Jake Wood
    Jacqueline Jossa

    to win but even if only Jo&Manya win I'll be happy :)

    Derek Branning is the WORST Villain/ Actor... i don't know anyone that actually thinks hes even a good actor and his story lines are appalling sorry but loads of complaints are made about him surely he has to go, loads of people have stopped watching eastenders because of him... and im tempted only reason i am watching it is because of Ray is super cute! get the hint and get Derek off!

  • Comment number 5.

    I don't want Derek to win, I dont think that he is a good actor... he just does not fit the role at all. I hope Max and Tanya will the are the best together...

  • Comment number 6.

    Awww looks like a good line up! I'd love Jo to win best actress! She's such an amazing actress!! I hope she doesn't leave coz of her cancer!!! Xxx

  • Comment number 7.

    Why is Yusif not up for best villain?!?! So much better than Derek and was a great story line I though

  • Comment number 8.

    Haven't been on here in a while but those who think Jamie Foreman is terrible are deluded. Watch his other stuff. You can even catch him on iplayer on doctor who the idiots lantern.

    Compare Derek to Andy Hunter years ago, Derek is a far more complicated character. We don't know a lot about Derek but everything will be explained in the same way these people complained about the portrayal of Lauren in 2010.

    One last thing eastenders has a very unique style, mostly thanks to BK himself where all the stories are CHARACTER DRIVEN. compare to other soaps last night which had their big storyline where a broken family refuse to come to a head, those stories disengage the relationship with the character and you because the story moves to fast for the character to move with the emotion

    What! Jake Wood as best actor now this is against the trade desciption act, he is possibly the worlds worsed actor, damn!! did I say actor now this is something you can't call him. Yes the acting doesn't get any worse than this.

  • Comment number 10.

    @ ukextra Jake Wood is one of the best male actors on EE right now, he is way better than his on screen brothers and the other actors who usually are nominated such as Shane Richie and Nitin Gantara

  • Comment number 11.

    Michael French (David Wicks) has to get best comeback because he made Eastenders worth watching and it has gone downhill since he left :(
    Jo Joyner should definately get best actress because she has done so well with her cancer storyline!
    Tanya and Max should definately get best couple because they are perfect together!
    Pats Funeral was definately the best episode, it made me cry so much, hope they all get the awards they deserve :)
    But I hope Derek doesn't get an award for best villian because he is a rubbish actor and his character is pointless!!

  • Comment number 12.

    I voted this:
    Best Dressed Soap Star:HOLLYOAKS: JORGIE PORTER

    Eastenders needs to go back to the goodness of before!!

  • Comment number 13.

    Wishing the Eastenders team the best of luck. Jo is a winner for me! She is perfect as Tanya. More Branning confrontations/revelations for them all to flex their acting muscles please!

  • Comment number 14.

    Derek Branning i don't know anyone that actually thinks hes even a good actor and his story lines are appalling sorry but loads of complaints are made about him surely he has to go, loads of people have stopped watching eastenders i want david back to get rid of him or grant :D

  • Comment number 15.

    I agree that everyone/thing that was nominated should have been nominated and reckon alot are going to recive awards. However I think theres a few more people who wernt nominated but should have been though thats just my opinion

  • Comment number 16.

    Why aren't Michael and Janine nominated for best couple? They're literally the ONLY interesting partnership the show has. Derek is awesome played by a brilliant actor. Lindsey Coulson should be nominated for best actress.

  • Comment number 17.

    I agree with all execpt i think yusef shud have been nominated for best villan

  • Comment number 18.

    Derek Branning Best Villain??? Yusef should have been Best Villain, Derek Branning is just a panto villain. I`ve had to stop watching EE because of him. I`m not happy with the way the storylines are going either. EE has gone downhill.

  • Comment number 19.

    i think Derek should go he's awful my little brother has to go to bed early so we can watch EastEnders because he's scared of him... EastEnders is getting boring the story lines are rubbish and the best actor should be jack!!
