The goalkeeper has saved 50% of the penalties that he has faced as a madridista in LaLiga.
Goals from Bale, Casemiro and Kroos saw the champions pick up the first three points of the season against Deportivo.
The Whites' midfielder has struck eight of his nine goals as a madridista during the course of 2017.
There are seven madridistas on the 24-man shortlist for the award.
The madridista coach is among the 12 nominees.
