Inside Soap Awards 2008 – Nominations

Hello and welcome to Wednesday’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. It’s awards time again! Question is, will Coronation Street be able to defend its Best Soap crown when the Inside Soap Awards are held this September? Or will young upstart Hollyoaks surprise everyone? In 2007, for the first time in a decade, Corrie beat EastEnders to the award for Best Soap. But Hollyoaks might just pull off a sensational win unless EastEnders fans get on the case again.

Should be an interesting night…especially if Rob James-Collier wins Sexiest Male again – he really hates winning that award as you’ll see from this previous blog entry of mine...But what is John Partridge (Christian Clarke, EastEnders) doing being nominated for Funniest Performance? He’s not funny! Not as funny as Blanche in Corrie.  Somebody at Inside Soap is having a laugh. Happy with the nominations? Was something or someone left out? Or nominated when they don’t deserve it? Have your say by clicking on the ‘add a comment’ link below and saying your piece.

    Oh my god, have you realised your error! Where is Jamie Lomas (Warren Fox - Hollyoaks) in the sexiest male category??? He should be on there instead of Chris Fountain, he\’s not sexy at all!   Kym Ryder is a lucky lucky lady!

  2. Alan says:

    why are the real characters (such as roy cropper in corrie and shadrach in emmerdale) never included just the popular actors

  3. Tia says:

    Jamie Lomas should definately be in sexiest male. But I think the other three should be too! Why not get rid of some of Eastenders\’ and Coronation Street\’s sexiest male nominees, I think some of them are rubbish, and Hollyoaks has way to may fit lads for just 3 to be picked!

  4. Keith Martin says:

    MATTHEW HEALY PLAYED HIS PART OF MATTHEW KING SO WELLEMMERDALE SHOULD.OF KILLED HIM HE WAS THE SEXIEST MALE IN EMMERDALE
