“Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love” Receives EMMY Nomination

Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle Of Love receives Emmy nomination in the “Television Movie” category!

In the two-hour movie, the Partons, a family of humble means living in the mountains of Tennessee, face a devastating event that challenges their will. But when they experience a bewildering Christmas miracle, the Partons are drawn closer together than ever — with deepened faith and love for one another. Alyvia Alyn Lind, Jennifer Nettles, Ricky Schroder, and Gerald McCraney co-starred in the holiday movie Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, which aired on NBC, with Dolly Parton making a special guest appearance.

“I am so very proud and excited to have “Christmas of Many Colors” be nominated for an Emmy award,” says Dolly Parton. “Special thanks to my partner and executive producer Sam Haskell, a wonderful cast and crew, Steve Herek (our producer) and Pamela Long for a great script. And a special thanks to all of the many fans that watched it.”

“This project for me was a celebration of the family and the beautiful story of Miss Dolly Parton. Each day I played Avie Lee Parton was a joy. For “Christmas of Many Colors” to be nominated and celebrated further by the Emmy’s, thrills me,” adds Jennifer Nettles.

The 69th Emmy Awards will telecast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Sunday, September 17 (8:00-11:00 PM ET/5:00-8:00 PM PT) on CBS. Stephen Colbert will serve as host.
