Deepika Padukone has bagged nominations at three Bollywood awards for her performances in her films released last year.

She was nominated for the Best Actor (female) category at 59th Idea Filmfare Awards and 20th Annual Screen Awards 2014 for her performance in 'Ram-Leela' and 'Chennai Express'.

In addition to these two films, the Star Guild Awards also nominated her for her performance in the film 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'.

The 20th Annual Screen Awards 2014 also nominated Deepika for the Popular Choice (Female) category for her films- 'Chennai Express', 'Ram-Leela', 'Race 2' and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'- released last year.

The actress began 2013 with a bang, with her suave role in 'Race 2'. Then came Deepika's hat-trick- 'Chennai Express', 'Ram-Leela' and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'- blockbusters that set the cash registers ringing, each garnering over Rs 100 crores at the Box Office.

All her movies released in 2013 had the actress donning different looks and diverse avatars, adding to her already vibrant profile.

Being nominated for almost all her films at every award function, goes on to speak volumes of her transformation over the years as an actress. This, undeniably, makes her an absolute favorite this awards' season.
