Priyanka became a known name in the West with ‘Quantico’ in which she essays the role of the protagonist Alex Parrish.

She hoped through her role people understand that Indians are more than Apu from ‘The Simpsons’.
The nomination for the award, however, comes at a time when her TV series ‘Quantico’ is reportedly not doing really well. The ratings of the crime-thriller show have dipped, and it is being speculated that the series may end after the ongoing second season.
However, the nomination of Priyanka hints that despite the ratings going down, her popularity is only going high. In fact, popularity is what forms the spine of this award show. Fans from across the globe nominate their favourite stars, and later vote for their win.
While, PeeCee is facing tough competition, maybe her fans’ love and votes could take her to the win. The award function will be held on January 18, 2017.
