Actress Priyanka Chopra has won a nomination at People Choice Awards 2016 (PCA) in the ‘Favorite Actress in a New TV Series’ category for “Quantico.” After weeks of voting by fans (registering 72 million votes), which ended Oct. 24, PCA announced the final list of nominations Nov. 3, at an event hosted by Jane Lynch.
The actress has received much praise for her portrayal of Quantico’s top FBI recruit, Alex Parrish, who is accused of masterminding a terrorist attack on the U.S. and is forced to prove her innocence. It’s clear that apart from the critics, the actress also has a nod from the audience.
“Quantico” too has been nominated in the ‘Best New TV Drama’ category.
Priyanka has been nominated alongside actresses Emma Roberts (Scream Queens), Jamie Lee Curtis (Scream Queens), Lea Michele (Scream Queens) and Marcia Gay Harden (Code Black).
After receiving tons of nominations and awards at several Indian awards for her brilliant performances in films like “Aitraaz,” “7 Khoon Maaf,” “Barfi” and “Mary Kom,” the actress has now scored her first American nomination.
