The annual Hollywood event rewards the past year's films, TV shows and music artists in a huge number of categories, with the winners all voted for by members of the public.
The top five nominees in various categories will be unveiled during a press conference on November 3.
Voting has opened on peopleschoice.com as well as on Facebook and twitter until October 22.
The winners will be announced on January 6.
Priyanka's performance as Alex Parrish, an FBI recruit who finds herself labeled a co-conspirator in one the biggest terrorist attacks on American soil since 9/11, has been warmly welcomed in most reviews and also by some of the 33-year-old actress' colleagues from Hollywood as well as Bollywood.
In its review of the first episode of Quantico, the New York Times review said: "The strongest human asset in Quantico is (Priyanka) Chopra, a Bollywood superstar and former Miss World who is immediately charismatic and commanding amid the otherwise generic ensemble. If there's a problem with her casting, it's that she may come across as too seasoned and assured to be persuasive as a shaky, neophyte recruit."
The show also stars Jake McLaughlin, Aunjanue Ellis, Yasmine Al Masri, Johanna Braddy, Tate Ellington, Graham Rogers, Anabelle Acosta and Josh Hopkins in pivotal roles.
