Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra has made it to the final nomination in the Favourite Actress in a New TV Series category of People’s Choice Awards 2016.

The 33-year-old actress, who has made it to the top five, will be competing with big names like Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Marcia Gay Harden and Lia Michele.

“Wow my first nomination for #Quantico... Feel like a true debutante again. Thank u @peopleschoice , fingers crossed,” Priyanka tweeted.

In her debut American TV thriller “Quantico” she plays the lead role of a young FBI recruit Alex Parish.

The news of her being one of 15 actresses vying for a final nomination in the category came last month.
