Actress Priyanka Chopra won Favourite Dramatic TV Actress at the 43rd edition of the People's Choice Awards held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, which is Thursday morning in India. Priyanka headlines popular American crime drama Quantico, which is in its second season now. Priyanka's award at the People's Choice Awards this year, marks her second win at the gala. Priyanka features as FBI recruit-now-CIA agent Alex Parrish on Quantico. Ahead of the show, the 34-year-old star redefined chic on the red carpet in pale peach separates as she rubbed shoulders with Hollywood bigwigs like Blake Lively.
"I'm really happy being a drama queen if this is how it's done," Priyanka said after she collected her award on stage. Priyanka added: "This has been an incredible journey. Every single woman, all the actresses who were nominated with me today... all of these incredible actresses were the reason that I joined television. They were the reason that I am here today receiving this award. Being in the same category as them is just so overwhelming."
But Priyanka was not done even after her acceptance speech. An over-enthusiastic Priyanka continued: "I'm really psyched. Can I like do a little wiggle?" She then sarcastically dismissed it saying: "It's the concussion talking." For the uninitiated, Priyanka recently suffered a concussion on the sets of Quantico in New York.
As the crowd burst into hoots and cheers, Priyanka signed off saying: "This means the world to me." It appeared that Dwayne The Rock Johnson, with who Priyanka co-stars in Baywatch, and her mother Madhu Chopra clapped the loudest.
 
This is how Priyanka reacted:

Priyanka was nominated in the category with the likes of Ellen Pompeo, Kerry Washington, Taraji P. Henson and Viola Davis. Meanwhile, this is how Priyanka made a fashion splash at the red carpet:
