Last year Priyanka Chopra became the first South Asian actress to win a People's Choice Award (Favourite Actress in a New TV Series) and this year she just became the only one to win two.
Chopra has won the People's Choice Award 2017 for the Favourite Dramatic TV Actress for Quantico. Jamie Chung and Adam Rodriguez presented her with the trophy.
Chopra's act as Alex Parrish has surely won millions of hearts and the actress is blowing up in the American entertainment industry, considering she won in one of the toughest categories.
The actress beat the likes of Ellen Pompeo (Grey's Anatomy), Kerry Washington (Scandal), Voila Davis (How To Get Away With Murder) and Taraji P Henson (Empire) to take home the trophy.
Receiving her award on stage, Chopra said, "Thank you to the people. This has been an incredible journey. Every single woman who was nominated with me today... all of these incredible actresses were the reason that I joined television. They were the reason why I wanted to be the actor that I am here today, receiving this award and being in the same category as them is so overwhelming. Thank you to all of you who have accepted me and loved my show. Thank you to Josh Safran, Mark Gordon, Nick Pepper... everyone who has been a part of Quantico and my wonderful cast. And to all of you who are going to watch Quantico on Monday now, which we love!"
Her Baywatch co-star Dwayne Johnson was seen cheering her on from the sidelines, saying, "Go PC."

The actress was all kinds of adorable when after her speech she said, "I am really psyched... can I do a little wiggle (while actually doing it). Sorry it's the concussion talking."
The actress later took to Instagram to thank her fans aka PC Maniacs, saying, " A special shout out to my #PCManiacs... big love to you all. You know how much you mean to me, guys! Thank you all for the love you've given #AlexParrish and @AbcQuantico."
Speechless! Thank you to everyone who voted... this would not have been possible without you. A special shout out to my #PCManiacs... big love to you all. You know how much you mean to me, guys! Thank you all for the love you've given #AlexParrish and @AbcQuantico ... Don't forget to tune in to Quantico now on Mondays... starting Jan 23rd!
Last week the actress took a bad fall while filming a stunt on the sets of Quantico. She hit her head and suffered a concussion and was ordered by the doctors to take complete rest at home. There was a question mark on whether the actress would be able to attend the PCAs.
Chopra did mention on the red carpet that her "neck was still sore" but that didn't stop her from doing her famous twirl. The fringes on her dress were simply perfect for it too. Priyanka looked beautiful in a classy nude pink outfit by Sally LaPointe.
The People's Choice Awards 2017 were held at the Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles.
