Emmerdale Big Winner at Soap Awards

Emmerdale is the big winner at the annual Soap Awards on ITV. The popular soap beat out Coronation Street and East Enders although both the others won four awards each. It’s good to see great talent rewarded for their efforts and the annual soap awards are a great way to do it.

Emmerdale Stars

Emmerdale has been named best soap at a TV awards event crowning a haul of prizes, which also included best storyline, outstanding achievement and best bad boy.

The long-running ITV show collected the prizes at the Inside Soap Awards, fighting off stiff competition from EastEnders and Coronation Street, the usual contenders for the main prize.

Emmerdale landed the best soap title at the annual event for the first time.

Further swelling the silverware cabinet, the show’s best storyline trophy was for Cameron Murray’s killer cover-up and the outstanding achievement award was in recognition of the 40th anniversary live episode.

Dominic Power – who plays killer Cameron Murray, whose reign of terror in the village culminated in a siege at The Woolpack – took the bad boy trophy, ro unding off the Yorkshire Dales show’s batch of four prizes.

Dominic Power said of Emmerdale’s success: “It’s great, it’s fantastic, it’s the best kind of award you can get because people vote with their feet and it’s great to get that kind of recognition from the viewers.”

Talking about his recent exit storyline which saw his character stage a siege at The Woolpack, he said: “The response to the siege was great, I’m leaving on such a high. It’s been so amazing to be a part of the show when it’s at its most successful. To be picking up these awards tonight, it’s just fantastic.

“Knowing that this was my last time filming with all my friends and buddies, how lovely is it to do it for this. The whole thing was just a brilliant experience, it’s a great way to leave.”

Emmercale is the big winner at the soap award –it makes me wonder what happened with Coronation Street.  Oh yaeh — Michelle Keegan picked up soap’s sexiest female award for the fifth year running!  That’s quite an accomplishment in my opinion, and very well deserved. Corrie picked up a few additional awards as well.
