The announcement was made on Tuesday afternoon and fans of the show are outraged that actor Ndaba did not make the list.

Briefly.co.za learned that tweeps have been questioning why he did not make the list, seeing as the actor won the award the previous year.

Themba also lost out on a nomination for Personality of the Year.

However, his female co-star Thembise Matu who plays Petronella on the show, received a nomination.

It appears that maybe fans of ‘The Queen’ called off their boycott on DStv too early.

Tweeps threatened to stop paying their accounts with the company to pressure them into bringing the loveable Brutus back.

TimesLIVE reports that the nominees for the Best Actor category were Hamilton Dlamini, Masoia Msiza, Khulu Skeniana, Mduduzi Mabaso and Warren Masemola while Bonang, Somizi, Kagiso Rabada, Penny Penny and Nomzamo Mbatha all received the nod for Personality of the Year.
