Dolly Parton continues to enjoy a successful music career on many levels. Her Pure & Simple album and tour were both resounding successes, as have been her two NBC-TV movies from the holiday seasons, 2015’s Coat of Many Colors, and 2016’s Christmas Of Many Colors: Circle of Love. Both films were resounding successes for the network, and have resulted in a series of awards for the singer.
Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love was cited as one of the TV and Cable winners of the 68th Annual Christopher Awards, along with This Is Us, the runaway hit of the season, Academy Award Nominees Hidden Figures and Hacksaw Ridge, and Gold Star Parents, an episode of the long-running CBS news magazine staple 60 Minutes. The award will be presented in a May ceremony.
The Christopher Awards win is the latest for the film, which also includes the Movieguide® Epiphany Prize for Television. It marks the second straight win for a Parton-related project, following Coat of Many Colors.
