We always thought that the most beautiful person on this planet was Angelina Jolie or Halle Berry or Zac Efron or maybe Idris ElbaBut But were we completly wrong. Obviously those people are very attractive, but when we were introduced to someone else recently, it was game over for our eyeballs. We're talking about Quantico's Priyanka Chopra, the most ridiculously beautiful specimen on planet earth. Chopra is actually one of the most famous celebrities in the world thanks to her Bollywood film career, but she is just now becoming notable in America since her ABC drama Quantico premiered.

On Sunday evening in Los Angeles, looking like a million dollars in sparkling Vera Wang, the actress hit the stage of the People's Choice Awards to collect her prize for Favourite Actress in a New TV Series. That may sound like one of the awards cooked up at ceremonies closer home-but there are many reasons why it is actually a pretty big deal. For one, the PCAs may not be serious awards but they are extremely popular ones-and considering the roster included Ellen DeGeneres, Johnny Depp, Sandra Bullock, Vin Diesel, Kate Hudson, Claire Danes and Chris Hemsworth, they're doing something right. Two, it suggests that Priyanka Chopra is steadily making her way into the American mainstream. And perhaps she was always the one to do it.Indian actress Priyanka Chopra has become the first South Asian actress to win a People's Choice Award. Chopra won the "favourite actress in a new TV series" award for her role as an FBI agent in the US thriller Quantico.Other actresses nominated for the award included Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele and Marcia Gay Harden.Priyanka becomes the first Indian actor to register a win at the People's Choice Awards. She beat popular Hollywood and TV actors like Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele and Marcia Gay Harden to bag the award.

The Bollywood diva won the Favourite New Actress in a TV Series trophy for her first American TV show 'Quantico'.Every time she has been surrounded by scandal, or teetered on the edge of being written off, Priyanka hasn't just changed tracks, she's built newer, bigger ones on which to blaze her trail Every Single Time.

The 33-year-old Indian actress/singer and former Miss World is almost too pretty to look at, who plays the role of an FBI agent Alex Parish in the show, was competing against Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele and Marcia Gay Harden in the category. The actress dazzled the stage wearing a sparkly Spring 2016 Vera Wang dress. Priyanka also presented an award for Favourite Movie alongside John Stamos. Quantico marks the actor’s first Hollywood project. She has received a lot of praise for her portrayal of Alex Parrish, suspected of committing a terrorist attack, in the thriller series.

What She has Does In Quantico that Others Nominee didn't ?

For starters, she is determinedly and successfully managed to keep her other foot firmly in Bollywood. And since we're always kinder to those who don't appear to be getting 'too big for their boots,' that was the first smart step. The second was that she kept it so slow, so steady that by the time it happened it seemed organic, even inevitable. And, again, to us, her fiercest critics back home. Overseas, well, they didn't have the baggage, and I suspect it had been building for a while. If I recollect, the first bit of the international buzz began when Gerard Butler was reported to be dazzled by her .

Priyanka Chopra has gone and done it again . while this is not the first time India has earned good name on a foreign platform, but surely this win has made the former Miss World a global face in all aspects. We wish to see our 'desi girl' winning more hearts and awards in future! . she has made a legitimate, mainstream debut, and the fans are clearly lapping her up. She's done the talk show circuit, acquitted herself pretty well; she's looked the part and kept the fashion police happy; she's on screen once a week with a show that boasts suitable if predictable cliffhangers and clearly she's charming the pants of everyone. Remember - this is a popularity award, and even accounting pockets of enthusiastic NRIs, to win this, just half a season in, is a pretty massive deal.

Priyanka went on a thanking spree when she clinched the Favourite Actress In A New TV Series award, but her speech was cut short by Stamos when he quipped: “It’s just a two-hour show.”

Thank you speech of Priyanka :

“I’d like to thank everyone who voted for ‘Quantico’. It is my first year in the US, and to come to another country and actually get this kind of acceptance is, I guess, what America is all about. (Read: Priyanka Chopra wins Favourite Actress award for Quantico at People’s Choice Awards) “So, thank you for accepting me, thank you to my mom, my manager, the cast and crew, the writer, ABC … everyone. I’m really overwhelmed,” she said.

She is kept her fanbase back home right where she wants them, even as she builds new ones overseas. Chopra tweeted “I am so fortunate! Thank you to everyone who voted for me at the #PCAs! My #PCManiacs-I am nothing without you! Big love,” an image of herself with the award, thanking fans for voting for her:

In her Interview she said She acknowledged her mother, she acknowledged her privilege, she equated herself as an every man ('if I can do this anyone can') and said repeatedly that she was thrilled to win this as an Indian overseas. She Also Said "I was trying to say as much as I could and thank as many people as I could but there was so much to say and I was presenting an award. I was completely crazy at that time because there was so much to do and so much to say and I was presenting an award and was completely crazy at that time. I kept looking at my mother as I gave my speech and I thanked everybody who chose me im really happy and this achievement makes me believe that if I can do it, so can anybody," .

Sunny Leone was the first to wish Priyanka :
