The Emmerdale cast need your votes as nominations are revealed in the TV Choice and Radio Times awards.
It’s award season once more with Emmerdale up for multiple gongs, in both the TV Choice and Radio Times awards, announcing their nominees as the various serial drama’s jockey for the viewers’ votes.
Up for Best Actor at the TV Choice awards are Dominic Brunt (Paddy Kirk), Mark Charnock (Marlon Dingle) and Jeff Hordley (Cain Dingle). All three have had compelling storylines over the past year.
The Best Actress nominees are Zoe Henry (Rhona Goskirk), Claire King (Kim Tate), with the stupendous Natalie J Robb (Moira Dingle) rounding off the nominations for the Yorkshire based soap, which is also up for Best Serial Drama.
Emmerdale has been successful at the TV Choice Awards, in 2018 taking home the Best Serial Drama award while Emma Atkins (Charity Dingle) won Best Actress as her historical sexual abuse storyline garnered critical and audience acclaim.
Last year, Isabel Hodgins (Victoria Barton) missed out as did Ryan Hawley (Robert Sugden) for the magazine’s Best Actress and Actor awards respectively. However, Emmerdale did win Best Soap once again!
The longest voting is open until midnight on Friday 12th June, with the short list revealed on 7th July.
Hot on the heels of the TV Choice gongs are the prestigious Radio Times awards, which sees Emmerdale up for five awards. Jeff Hordley secures a second nomination for Best Actor, for Cain Dingle’s turmoil of finding out he had a son in explosive circumstances.
Michelle Hardwick (Vanessa Woodfield) is nominated for Best Actress as Vanessa’s bowel cancer storyline continues to show real verve, not to mention her portrayal of her character’s hostage drama at the hands of Pierce Harris.
Mark Womack (DI Mark Malone), who has been at the heart of some drama in the village, is in the running for Best Newcomer with Who Killed Graham up for Best Storyline. Rounding of the Radio Times nominees list is Emmerdale for Best Soap.
