Robin Van Persie and Michael Carrick were both included in the PFA Player of the Year award shortlist alongside Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez.
The two players' outstanding performances for United have helped propel to club to the top of the table, and the Red Devils are expected to be crowned Premier League champions come the end of the season.
Another United player, striker Danny Welbeck, was also nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Ferguson has expressed his joy over seeing due recognition being awarded to three of his most influential players this season and admitted he would be rooting for them to take home the awards when it is handed out later this month.
"I'm delighted," Ferguson told MUTV.
"They deserve to be nominated, there's no doubt about that. And I obviously hope one of them wins.
"Robin has had a fantastic season - his goals emphasise the impact he has made at our club.
"I think this is Michael's best ever season at United. He's been absolutely magnificent.
"It's amazing Michael has had to wait until he's 31 to get nominated for anything!
"He really deserves it.
"Danny has also shown some great performances this season for us and his country, and I'm delighted for him too."
Van Persie, Carrick and Welbeck will likely feature for United when they take on Aston Villa in their next Premier League fixture.
