THE BRITISH SOAP AWARDS 2013 – Donnatella’s Predictions

The stars of British Soap gather tonight in Manchester for the event of the year, The British Soap Awards 2013. The ceremony, hosted by ITV silver fox, Phillip Schofield will be screened on ITV 1, tomorrow, Sunday 19th May at 8pm. Here follows Donnatella’s predictions of who from Soapland will be taking gongs home for the main categories.

SEXIEST FEMALE NOMINEES

NATALIE ANDERSON  (Alicia Metcalfe) Emmerdale

GEORGIA MAY FOOTE (Katy Armstrong) Coronation Street

JORGIE PORTER (Theresa McQueen) Hollyoaks

JACQUELINE JOSSA (Lauren Branning) Eastenders

MICHELLE KEEGAN (Tina McIntyre) Coronation Street

DONNATELLA’S PREDICTION

MICHELLE KEEGAN

Although Jacqueline Jossa’s and Georgia May Foote’s natural beauty stands out on screen, viewers favourite Michelle will most likely take the award. Guys love the girl next door appeal of the Corrie actress.

DAVID WITTS (Joey Branning) Eastenders

CHRIS FOUNTAIN (Tommy Duckworth) Coronation Street

KEIRON RICHARDSON (Ste Hay) Hollyoaks

DANNY MAC (Mark ‘Dodger’ Savage) Hollyoaks

MATTHEW WOLFENDEN (David Metcalfe) Emmerdale

DONNATELLA’S PREDICTION

DAVID WITTS

Danny Mac is the obvious Soap Stud in this line-up, but I predict the Eastenders’ newcomer will be the viewers popular favourite.

VILLAIN OF THE YEAR NOMINEES

NATALIE GUMEDE (Kirsty Soames) Coronation Street

EMMET J SCANLAN (Brendan O’Brady) Hollyoaks

NIGEL HAVERS (Lewis Archer) Coronation Street

JAMIE FOREMAN (Derek Branning) Eastenders

DOMINIC POWER (Cameron Murray) Emmerdale

DONNATELLA’S PREDICTION

NATALIE GUMEDE

A powerful line-up this year but I think Natalie’s portrayal of man beater Kirsty Soames will blow the others out of the water. The backstory of Brendan made him a loveable villain, with viewers empathising with his brutal actions. Natalie deserves this even more being the only female in the line-up.

BEST ACTOR NOMINEES

JEFF HORDLEY (Cain Dingle) Emmerdale

SHANE RICHIE (Alfie Moon) Eastenders

EMMET J SCANLAN (Brendan O’Brady) Hollyoaks

ALAN HALSALL (Tyrone Dobbs) Coronation Street

NITIN GANATRA (Masood Ahmed) Eastenders

DONNATELLA’S PREDICTION

ALAN HALSALL

For me, Emmet’s Brendan O’Brady has set the bar a whole new level in Soap acting, but due to Hollyoaks being the underdog and the whole publicity surrounding domestic violence in men, Alan will take the gong. (- I hope I’m wrong on this one…Emmet gets my vote)

BEST ACTRESS NOMINEES

JESSIE WALLACE (Kat Moon) Eastenders

JENNIE MCALPINE (Fiz Stape) Coronation Street

CLAIRE COOPER (Jacqui McQueen) Hollyoaks

MICHELLE KEEGAN (Tina McIntyre) Coronation Street

NINA WADIA (Zainab Masood) Eastenders

DONNATELLA’S PREDICTION

JESSIE WALLACE

Hollyoak’s, Claire Cooper deserves this award from this list but I’m thinking Jessie will win. She’s been central to many plots in Enders this last year and Kat Moon is the viewers favourite.  Surprised none of Emmerdale’s strong female characters never made the final five.

EMMERDALE

Hollyoaks hasn’t had a dull week all year with powerful, believable and well acted storylines. However, every year this category seems to be a two horse race…Eastenders and Coronation Street. I was certain that Corrie would take the gong but after talking to my soap spies, it appears that alleged sex charges against cast members of Corrie may swing voters.  This gives a running chance to underdog soaps, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks. Emmerdale drew in the viewers with a brilliant live episode last October so I’m predicting they might finally be awarded for Emmerdale’s outstanding drama and comedy interludes. One thing I definitely can predict…it won’t be Doctors taking the award home.
