British Soap Awards 2018

The British Soap Awards are always a must-watch at Entertainment Views HQ, we are avid soap fans and love to find out who the public has chosen as their soap opera favourites. Hosted by Phillip Schofield, this was the first year the awards show had gone live and the selected venue – Hackney Empire Theatre was a good choice. The show ran to time, almost, slightly thrown off-kilter when 80’s small screen legends Cagney (Sharon Gless) and Lacey (Tyne Daly) arrived to announce the winner of Best Soap. Their banter was one of the highlights of the evening, it was fantastic to see the pair reunited.

Without further ado, here are the winners, together with Entertainment Views‘ opinion on the chosen ones:

Winners — 2018

Voted by the British public

Best British Soap

Coronation Street

Entertainment Views thinks: We agree! It’s pushed boundaries in the past twelve months and Phelan (Connor McIntyre) has kept us gripped. Worthy winner.

Best Actor

Jack P Shepherd

Coronation Street

Entertainment Views thinks: Yes, David Platt is a fantastic character and Jack P Shepherd plays him like a second skin.

Best Actress

Lucy Fallon

Coronation Street

Entertainment Views thinks: An unsurprising win as Lucy Fallon is the girl of the moment.

Greatest Moment

Hotten Bypass Crash

Emmerdale (2016)

Entertainment Views thinks: Spectacular, Emmerdale at its finest.
Voted by the panel

Villain of the Year

Connor McIntyre

Coronation Street

Entertainment Views thinks: Who else?

Best Male Dramatic Performance

Ross Adams

Hollyoaks

Entertainment Views Thinks: We’d always thought he had been un underrated actor, so this award goes to show how much his talent is appreciated in the industry.

Best Female Dramatic Performance

Lucy Fallon

Coronation Street

Entertainment Views thinks: We refer you to our comments above – this girl can do no wrong at the moment.

Best Comedy Performance

Ian Midlane

Doctors

Entertainment Views thinks: A worthy winner, it’s great to see Doctors being included – it’s not often they win a public vote, however the panel can be relied upon to give them a shout out.

Best Young Actor

Isobel Steele

Emmerdale

Entertainment Views thinks: A talented young actor, her recent storyline has really brought her to the fore.

Scene of the Year

Bollywood Proposal

Doctors

&

Lauren & Abi’s Rooftop Fall

EastEnders

Entertainment Views thinks: A tied vote, eh? We agree that both scenes stood out in their individual ways and you probably couldn’t judge them against one another, really. The rooftop fall was a heart-stopping scene.

Best On-Screen Partnership

Malique Thompson-Dwyer & Theo Graham

Hollyoaks

Entertainment Views thinks: Hollyoaks have some of the best on-screen partnerships.

Best Newcomer

Lorraine Stanley

EastEnders

Entertainment Views thinks: She’s phenomenal, if this had gone to public vote we’d have backed Lorraine to win.

Best Storyline

Lily’s Self-harm

Hollyoaks

Entertainment Views thinks: This storyline was so on point that we often found it difficult to watch. Hollyoaks do hard-hitting drama like no other.

Best Single Episode

Three Mothers, Three Daughters

Hollyoaks

Entertainment Views thinks: Absolutely spot on, a glorious episode which explored emotions like no other.

Outstanding Achievement

Rudolph Walker

EastEnders

Entertainment Views thinks: Yeah man! A perfect choice who has long deserved an accolade.

Tony Warren Award

Kieran Roberts

former Executive Producer – Coronation Street

Entertainment Views thinks: We remember Kieran from when he joined Emmerdale, continuing drama are lucky to have him, as are the ITV.
