Queerty has announced their 2020 Queertie Award Nominations and two former CBS soap faves made the cut. Murray Bartlett (ex-Cyrus, Guiding Light) is nominated for his role in Netflix's revival series Tales of the City. Bartlett snagged a nomination for TV Performance for his role as Michael "Mouse" Tolliver.

Tales of the City is based on a series of novels by Armistead Maupin. An adaptation first aired as a miniseries in 1993 on PBS before moving to Showtime. The series features heavy hitters like Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis, who also returned to the Netflix revival, which started airing in 2019.

Van Hansis (ex-Luke, As the World Turns) is up for a Digital Series Performance award for his portrayal as Thom on EastSiders. The digital series, created by Kit Williamson, premiered in 2012. It started out on YouTube before eventually landing on Netflix, where all episodes can be watched.
