"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:
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!
