Lou | 17:00 UK time, Thursday, 31 March 2011

The deadline has now closed. Please do not place any more votes.

Woop woop! It's that exciting time of year, where soap stars glide along the red rug in their droves and pose for the clicking cameras as they anxiously hope for success in the British Soap Awards.

Not only will the starlets be sat ALL under the SAME roof, but they'll be smiling and applauding each other as the best of the bunch are awarded in the Saturday, 14th May ceremony.

And YOU'VE been voting for who you want to be picking up their gongs! 

The deadline for voting for your favourite soap stars has now closed until the shortlisted Sexiest Male, Female, Best Villain, Actor and Actress will be re-opened on Monday, 18th April

Voting for BEST SOAP remains open until Friday, 13th May.

You can vote now through the British Soap Awards website.

Here's a reminder of the category nominees you've been voting from:

Best Actor

Here's a line up of our acting talent *bows* up for this brilliant accolade. Which actor will be crowned for their polished performances? Nitin Ganatra (Masood Ahmed), Steve McFadden (Phil Mitchell) and Shane Richie (Alfie Moon) are our nominees.

Best Actress

The last year has been filled with acting triumphs and these three have come up trumps with nominations under this category.  Lindsey Coulson (Carol Jackson), Nina Wadia (Zainab Masood) and Jessie Wallace (Kat Moon) are the actresses up for this top honour.

Sexiest Male

Has someone cranked up the heating?!? Which of these badboy beauties get your temperature rising? Marc Elliott (Syed Masood), Scott Maslen (Jack Branning), the 2010 winner, or is John Partridge (Christian Clarke) more your flavour? *Fans self*

Sexiest Female

What a trio of treats... Kylie Babbington (Jodie Gold), Zoe Lucker (Vanessa Gold) and Rita Simons (Roxy Mitchell) are our three mighty fine females who have been nominated for this 'gorgeousness gong'!

 

Villain of the Year

Glenda Mitchell (Glynis Barber), Janine Malloy (Charlie Brooks) and Lucas Johnson (Don Gilet) have had us all gripped with their dirty antics. A threesome of crooks, con artists and killers - hhhhmmmm, the conniving bunch. Who will be crowned Villain of the Year?

 

Who will be shortlisted? Ooooh the suspense.

Remember, voting for BEST SOAP remains open until Friday, 13th May.

Don't forget to watch the soap stars spill onto the streets of Manchester for the British Soap Awards ceremony on Saturday,14th May! It will be a corker.

    Have voted Marc and John for sexiest male as a Chryed fan i had too lol have voted for jessie and nina for best actress and steve for best actor so come on Enders Hannah xxx

  • Comment number 2.

    I love this time of the year! It's definitely the biggest night in the soap calendar. It's like the Oscars of the soap world. I think Scott Maslen has Sexiest Male in the bag already - he's won it for the last few years! Maybe it should be re-named The Scott Maslen award? Although Chryed have a huge following so it may change, but money's on Scott. Steve McFadden has been outstanding these past 12 months with the crack story, The Queen Vic fire and Peggy's exit. He's always overlooked when it comes to awards and missed out at the NTA's, so if anyone deserves it, Steve does. It's a shame Jake Wood wasn't nominated - he's incredible. I'd bet on Kylie picking up Sexiest Female, but she has tough competition up against all the Hollyoaks babes! Lindsey Coulson HAS to win Best Actress - she's such a talented actress which has been shown since she has returned and of course with Billie's death. I hope EastEnders swipes the board again and goes home the winners on the night - it's been a brilliant year with great stroylines, episodes and characters! Go on the Enders!

    I hope kat wins best actress even though Ronnie and Stacey(if they were up for nominations)deserves it just as much.... I hope that bitch Janine wins villian of the year because she's at her best when she's evil and i've suprisingly never seen her win it before!!!
    Finally, Eastenders should win best soap because they try the most to put on a good drama........

    So strange to see an awards line-up and not see Lacey Turner's name on it:)

    I gotta say that that Villain category is going to be the most competitive, but I think I'm going to have to go with Charlie Brooks. She's truly a classic!

    Shame Samantha Womack isn't nominated. She's been fantastic. Very natural acting...maybe that's why she's so understated. I'm going to hate when she leaves. :(

  • Comment number 30.

    EastEnders certainly deserves to win Best Soap. There have been just too many brilliant scenes and performances to count.

    The whole cot death/baby swap storyline has been seriously brilliant, with both Jessie Wallace and Samantha Womack giving performances that brought out colours we've never seen from them before. I know that storyline elicited some protest (most of which, in my opinion, was manufactured) but it has been a riveting story.

    Another scene off the top of my head, this year, which stood out for me was after Billie died, when they came to take his body and Carol, Bianca and Pat were standing in the hallway outside the front room: Even without a word, the power in that scene was amazing. There are so many nuggets like that in the show.

    And mixed in with all the seriousness has been some good laughs. Every time Kim calls Janine 'Janice', I start laughing. Same for the rest of the character-based humor.

    Like I said, too many gems to count!

  • Comment number 31.

    Nitin Ganatra (Masood Ahmed)!!!! Hope he wins. Terrific charming man.
    Alfie too:)
    Phil's character is not my favorite these days...turned evil, but not in a "fun" way.

    Zoe Lucker (Vanessa Gold) ! So beautiful and in a class of her own!

  • Comment number 32.

    charlie brooks - villian of the year,
    shane richie - best actor,
    nina wadia - best actress,
    best soap - eastenders

  • Comment number 43.

    It is very disappointing that S. Womack is not even nominated. She is a fantastic actress and has been amazing in this storyline, despite the poor writing she has to work with.
    I hope she will get nominated for best dramatic performance.
    I will miss her when she leaves EE.
    As for the best actress my vote goes to Lindsey Coulson. She was fantastic during the storyline of Billie’s death.

    The best actress/actor award is a popularity context though, so it is likely that Jessie will win it. She has been good too, but she has only been back for five minutes. Lindsey is a more worthy winner.

    I hope Steve wins best actor.

    Best Actress- Zainab Masood

  • Comment number 48.

    janine- best villan

  • Comment number 49.

    janine-best villan

  • Comment number 50.

    Still waiting for wrap uP to baby swap storyline but have started watching again just turning off when. That storyline featured know it's nearly over so am starting to enjoy eastenders again. It is such a great programme with brilliant actors - the baby swap storyline was just a really big mistake but all the other story lines at the moment are good. I amalso enjoying the humorous dialOgue which makes the programme more uplifting.
    This is the only time I have ever complained about a tv soap as usually just accept storylines are to create audiene interest and publicity I just got so angry at a lost chance to deal with an emotive storyline in a responsible manner. This is the last time I will complain about it as realise eastendrs are trying to wrap it up

  • Comment number 51.

    Jim Branning should get a award for being a "eastenders veteran"

  • Comment number 52.

    * Best Actor: Steve McFadden (Phil Mitchell)

    * Best Actress: Lindsey Coulson (Carol Jackson)

    * Sexiest Male: Scott Maslen (Jack Branning)

    * Sexiest Female : Rita Simmons (Roxy Mitchell)

    ...

    Now for the villain the reasonable choice goes to:

    ---> Janine Malloy (Charlie Brooks) she's great, but I really LOVE

    * Villain of the Year: Glynis Barber (Glenda Mitchell) she's the BEST...!

  • Comment number 53.

    Someone said sexiest female - Michelle Kegan - who is she? She's not in the nominations. And WHY OH WHY is Samantha Janus - Ronnie - not nominated??? She is way better looking than Roxy! Why leave out the best looking woman on the show?? Who chooses the nominees?

  • Comment number 54.

    I think Neil McDermott ( Ryan Malloy) should be up for sexiest male, come on he is he is so much better looking in some of the other guys nomanitted! he is really hot, well i think he should be up for it :D !!! xx Also I think Janine should win villion of the year because she has done loads of evil things like, drugged ryan, saying that stacey stabbed her, and loads more! Come on Eastenders Win loads of awardas! Sheryl xxx

  • Comment number 55.

    CHARLIE BROOKS !! The best of the best!
    Love Janine! Don't really have any passion towards the rest now that Lacey Turner (Stacey) has gone :(

  • Comment number 56.

    Voted for Shane Richie, Jessie Wallace, Scott Maslen, Rita Simons and Charlie Brooks.
    I agree with Sheryl. Neil is sexy. I would have to look twice for Marc and John. Neil is soo fit. He is coming back in EE this week I think. Can't wait for the BSA. I voted for EE. Like Hollyoaks too. Didn't like any of the people there though except Jasmine/Jason.

    I think it's ironic that you have house rules for this blog! Considering it's the scum of the earth that are portrayed in this soap. They have no morals, no respect for each other or family. I really worry where the writers of this programme get their ideas from and where do they live. My one big regret is that this Soap is broadcast in Ireland at Prime Time, we could do without such rubbish on t.v. from England. Rubbish! & More Rubbish!

  • Comment number 63.

    Is it just me or does anyone else think Ben Mitchell looks like the teddy bear character from Bo Selecta?

    We're having some problems posting your comment at the moment. Sorry. We're doing our best to fix it.
