    It's hard to pick best actress! I'd like all three of them to win it. Picking villain of the year was much easier.

  • Comment number 3.

    - But there are other actors and actresses in EastEnders that I think are great too, who aren't nominated.

  • Comment number 4.

    Why wasn't Jake Wood not nominated this year, he is way better than the other 3 that are nominated, why do the same 3 people be nominated for the sexiest male, its been 3 years now.
    Sexiest Male: Scott Maslen
    Sexiest Female: Jacquline Jossa
    Villian of the Year: Ace Bhatti
    Best Actor: I randomly just voted for Steve Mcfadden
    Best Actress: Jo Joyner
    Best Soap: Eastenders

  • Comment number 5.

    My choices are,
    Sexiest Male: Marc Elliott, he is absolutely gorgeous.
    Villain of the year: Dr Evil
    Best Actress: Jo Joyner or Nina Wadia both deserve to win.
    If there is an award for best onscreen partnership I would love Johnny Partridge & Marc Elliott to win.

    Sexiest male: John Partridge (Christian)
    Sexiest female: (Would have voted Rita Simmons aka Roxy if she was on list) Preeya Kalidas (Amira)
    Villan of the Year: Ace Behatti (Yusef)
    Best Actor: (Would have been Marc Elliott aka Syed or John Partridge aka Christian if nominated) Very difficult choice coz all 3 nominated are super but i had to go with Steve Mcfadden (Phil)
    Best Actress:(Would have been Rita Simmons aka Roxy if nominated) Nina Wadia (Zainab)
    Best Soap: EastEnders of course, i dont watch the others.

    John Partridge (come on!)
    Jacqueline Jossa (BY FAR, BEST CHAR!)
    Yusef Khan (Without a doubt)
    Nitin Ganatra (surely)
    Jo Joyner (How could you not get that?)
    And Yusef's Boxing Day fire horror is the one that got me glued to the screen although Kimba is the most hilarious!

    I am absolutely outraged that Pauline Quirke is not up for Best Actress. What is wrong with the world! How the hell is Charlie Webb up there are not PQ! The only thing CW is capable of doing is to make the whole nation want to commit suicide with just one look - the most miserable depressing character on soap!!!!!

    Sexiest Male; Scott Maslen
    Sexiest Female; Preeya Kalidas
    Villian; Ace Bhatti
    Best actor; Steve Mcfadden
    Best Actress; Nina Wadia
    Best Soap; EastEnders
