And she not only won the red carpet — obviously, she won her second People’s Choice Award for Quantico as well. The actor defeated her ABC counterparts Ellen Pompeo, Kerry Washington, Taraji P. Henson, and Viola Davis to win in Favourite Dramatic TV Actress award.

Speaking about her injury on Quantico’s sets, the actor told media, “I was a little nervous… I didn’t know if I would make it, but I got so bored sitting on my couch for three days.” While shooting in New York on January 12, she slipped and fell, hitting her head. She had to be hospitalised after suffering a concussion. “I was supposed to be saving someone, as usual, Alex Parrish-style,” Priyanka added in the report, saying, “The doctors said another couple of days and I should be okay.” She also thanked her fans for sending their love.

Dressed in a peach ensemble by Sally LaPointe, she said in her acceptance speech, “I am really happy being a drama queen and this is how it is done… thank you to the people. As everyone has been saying, it has been an incredible journey. Every single woman who was nominated with me today, all these incredible actresses were the reason that I joined television. They were the reason that I am here today, receiving this award in the same category as them is so overwhelming. Thank you to all who have accepted me and liked my show… can I do a little wiggle? Sorry, that is the concussion talking. Thank you and this means the world to me.” She also thanked the entire cast and crew of “Quantico”, her first Hollywood project.
