Deepika Padukone has become one of the nominees for this year’s Teen Choice Awards. The nominations were announced recently and Deepika has been listed under the category Action Movie Actress for her film xXx: Return of Xander Cage, which became the first Hollywood blockbuster of 2017. What also has grabbed eyeballs is the fact that the leggy lass will be competing with Gal Gadot, who has been nominated for her superhero film, Wonder Woman.

Kaya Scodelario for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Michelle Rodriguez for The Fate of The Furious, Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose for xXx: Return of Xander Cage are the others who have been nominated in the same category.

For Deepika, this award show would mark her first show after debuting in Hollywood. Her film’s success has already made her an international star, and soon she would begin shooting for her next Hollywood film, which is the next film in the xXx franchise, as confirmed by DJ Caruso.

Interestingly, xXx: Return of Xander Cage has got five nomination under different categories followed by The Fate of The Furious and Power Rangers who have minted four nominations despite receiving mixed reviews. However, Deepika’s contemporary, Priyanka Chopra has not made it to the nominations in any category for her Hollywood debut Baywatch while Dwayne Johnson has been able to bag three nomination, one of which is under Comedy Movie Actor category for Baywatch.

In television, long-running and divisive Freeform series Pretty Little Liars dominates with seven nominations. The CW’s The Flash earned four nods, with Lethal Weapon, Arrow, Supergirl, This is Us, and The Vampire Diaries earning three, reports Screen Rant.

The Teen Choice Awards celebrates films or television shows which are crowd pleasers from major franchises along with highly rated shows. The show will be telecast live on FOX on August 13th from 8:00-10:00 PM ET.
