Christmas of Many Colors, Emmys

‘Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love’ found its home in NBC as the holiday film was released last November 2016. A sequel to Coat of Many Colors, it is a story of “Jolene” singer, Dolly Parton as she narrates the film and takes the role of a prostitute who befriends Alyvia Alyn Lind who is playing young Dolly.

The story revolves around the patriarch, Lee Parton and his heartbreaking sacrifice to buy his wife a ring he could not afford. Dolly and her siblings also tried joining the cause of helping her family while her Uncle Billy begins to see the country icon that she is destined to become as little Dolly serenades her way on the streets of rural Tennessee. All of these events make a very challenging yet heartwarming Christmas flick chronicling the Parton family’s story.

On her website, Dolly shared her sentiment about being nominated:

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

Jennifer Nettles who played the role of Avie Lee Parton can’t resist but share the same excitement with the film’s Emmy Nomination:

“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 Emmys thrills me.”

The film is nominated for “Outstanding Television Movie” and will be vying with the following TV films:

  • Black Mirror: San Junipero –  Netflix / House of Tomorrow
  • The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks – HBO / HBO Films in association with Your Face Goes Here Entertainment and Harpo Films
  • Sherlock: The Lying Detective (Masterpiece) – PBS / Hartswood Films in co-production with Masterpiece
