Who's your choice?

Aziz Ansari all the way. . . woo hoo

Getting an Emmy nomination is very very hard especially now since there's so many channels and Netflix and all!

And the emmy for drama actress goes to Priyanka Chopra!
She has no nomination but she will win for sure!
There will be protests now all over the world for not nominating her and the most loved TV series.
She is the ruling Hollywood and Sooner Deepika will join her!

Deepika will join her? LOL yeah right... xxx is her first and last film. And that will flop too.

Oh, people. Grow up! Quantico is rightfully not on this list - it doesn't hold a candle to shows nominated. Don't you get it by now - it's an attempt by a largely unsuccessful network to attract the huge Indian diaspora around the world and NOT an achievement for Priyanka Chopra of making it "big" in Western TV!

Majority of Quantico viewers are non-Indian.

no one is complaining about Quantico not being nominated. It's made by the makers of Gossip Girl... it's not targeted for Emmys. It's still a hit show and doing very well for Priyanka. You like it or not, Priyanka is making it big in the west!

But fact is Priyanka is making it big in the west! that's why you're burning!

it's not an achievement for Priyanka Chopra? wow jealous loser spotted!

you're a moron!


congratulations to Aziz Ansari on being the first Indian American that has been nominated for an Emmy for lead role.

I'm a Priyanka fan and I want to tell the person saying she will get a nomination next year blah blah to stop it. ABC gets to make a push for one candidate to get nominated every year and when the choice is between Viola and Priyanka they will pick Viola because there's a greater chance of her winning the Emmy. Priyanka is the IT girl on TV right now... She's the lead of one of the biggest breakout hits of the year. ABC knows how valuable Priyanka is to there network but when it comes to winning an Emmy they will make a push for Viola because she's a veteran so don't expect anything. I'm super proud of Priyanka for a that she's accomplished and wish her all the best for the future! She deserves all the success and more!

There's some great shows/actors/actresses on TV that have never received Emmy nominations so using this to bring down Priyanka is pathetic! She's doing amazingly well and no one can take that away from her!

correct like monica from friends !she never won !!

That the actresses nominated in "lead drama actress" category are veterans! All the people hating on Priyanka or making fun of her need a reality check! Priyanka is new and it's hard/rare to get an Emmy nomination right away. That doesn't change the fact that Priyanka's doing very well out west. She is by far the biggest new actress on TV right now! If the Emmy's had a breakout/debut category then she would be nominated for sure but alas there isn't. Haters dont be so smug because I'm sure Priyanka will give you all lots more reasons to burn!

wheres the masterpiece quantico? LOL

Lol people saying that PC will get nominated next year because it's season one, man are completely blind. Voila Davis won Emmy for season one , rami malek, Aziz Ansari just have one season of their show yet are nominated. Wake and smell the coffee that her show isn't that good. Hope 2nd is better.
Also bringing DP in is stupid because a) her movie hasn't yet released and b) action movies barely get nominated in acting category whereas shows like QUANTICO do get nominated but it wasn't. Post it pv

so you did make me delete a whole lot of things pv!!nice!

yes PV you are very proud that Aziz got a nomination for Emmy,thats why we dont see a single post on that.yet you give us four posts on selena,blake,justin and taylor..i guess they are more south asian n make you more proud than can do so much better than this.

wow pv you are really something

where is my comment!hm

The emmy award is one of the most prestigious one waiting for the other nominations

Making fun of Priyanka for not getting an Emmy nomination for Quantico is like making fun of Deepika for not getting an Oscar nomination for Triple X. It doesn't make sense. Quantico isn't a clever show but it's ABCs only new hit show. It's not going to be winning Emmys. It's the gossip girl of the FBI world. I don't think anyone is upset because I doubt PC would have expected a best actress or drama nomination.

yeah well said but Quantico is hugely liked n season 2 will be bigger n better hopefully she shall be nominated then n she is a newcomer She won the New TY actress drama for people choice she shall win others soon

when is the award show taking place?

In september or august i think

I heard its september

Waiting for the newcomer nominations now

You win some, you lose some.... the wheel of life!

Was hoping to see Quantico in the list but its again new next year it will surely be on the list so haters need to chill down

The New Tv artist actress nomination if theres any Priyanka will be on tat list for sure

well said Priyanka is the New Tv actress drama

Soon we shall see nominations for Priyanka n her show Quantico as its gonna rock more on season 2 happy to see How to get away with murder House of cards n Game of thrones on nomination list

Game of thrones n How to get away with murder r my favourite as well as Quantico which shall be nominated next year as its still new n we r excited for season 2

Love Game of thrones next year Quantico will be nominated too

Priyanka shall be nominated soon she just started season 2 now theres so many actors actresses directors who worked for years n never win yet its talent which matters as Peecee has plenty n we r proud of her

If there would be newcomers actress she would have won definitely

Big yay for Aziz Ansari and Rami Malek. Their shows are outstanding and deserve to win the eventual awards. PV you should have at least dedicated a post to Aziz for this achievement.

I heard that Priyanka had already drafted her tweet expressing surprise and thanks for the Emmy nomination etc....poor thing...lolllllll

Ur dreaming hater? PC is always nice n be happy for others thats why she shall win soon n has been achieving a lot success gradually

Aww no nomination for the best show on American tv QUANTICO. PC was truly robbed.
Glad Aziz Ansari and his show got nominations. It is truly an important show depicting the life of a child of immigrant parents. It is the one show that truly discusses and breaks the Indian stereotypes. I hope he wins.

Dont worry she shall be nominated soon she just started season 2 now theres so many people who worked for years n never win yet its talent which matters as Peecee has plenty n we r proud of her

Priyanka and her PR can take rest now. Shows how popular PC is. Shakuntela must be mourning.

I totally love Quantico its so amazing n entertaining n its season 2 will be more great n its of High grade show thats why its Trp get increase so much n soon she shall win accolades n awards for the show n the casts n direction too will be much praised..also PC doesnt need to work hard on her PR like others do especially miss padukone n get real soon ok

why r u getting jealous of her success n she is new there she has achieved a lot n shall continue to do so soon u will see her being nominated n winning

Just wait n watch as its so early soon she shall be nominated n win big for Quantico n her other ventures

Priyanka will win

Dont worry she will be nominated soon n win soon we know u r being sarcastic here n yes she shall win very soon

Priyanka will win big next time n she will be nominated soon as Quantico is gonna rock more in season 2

Where's Priyanka? She deserves it more than anyone on this list.

Wait a little she will be nominated n win too

Oh!!!! Really???? Have you watched any of the above shows??????? First watch it and then say these kinda senseless comments. Everyone's well deserving and all the shows are great. Moreover you can't compare that low grade Quantico, which no one watches including Indian girl like me, to Game of Thrones which millions watches either downloading or on television or even going on YouTube and even watching its trailer 100 times.

I totally love Quantico its so amazing n entertaining n its season 2 will be more great n its of High grade show thats why its Trp get increase so much n soon she shall win accolades n awards for the show n the casts n direction too will be much praised

Quantico is new a Agrade amazing show u hAvent watched all episodes or ur a hater it looks like n u shall see the show gets nominations next year
