Fans nominate Dolly as Favorite Female Country Artist in the 2015 People’s Choice Awards

Dolly was one of five artists nominated as Favorite Female Country Artist. Nominees and winners, unlike at other award shows, are chosen by fans instead of industry insiders. People’s Choice Awards (PCA) have categories in movies, music and television. Fans vote for their favorites on the PCA website.

Dolly was thrilled about the nomination,

“I am so excited to be nominated for a People’s Choice Award. It is always a good feeling to be recognized for whatever you do… This year has been an amazing year! I released a new album ‘Blue Smoke,’ traveled to Australia, Europe, and across America and even performed for 170,000 people at one show – woo that makes me tired just saying it.”

This marks her eighth PCA nomination and her fourth in this category. Dolly has won four People’s Choice Awards.

‘Steel Magnolias’ wins the 1990 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Dramatic Motion Picture

Dolly starred as Truvy Jones in the 1989 film, “Steel Magnolias.” The all-star cast also included Sally Field, Julia Roberts, Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis and Daryl Hannah. Dolly talked about why she chose the role,

“Since I’m not an actress, and don’t exactly know what all that even means – the technical end of it – I took on Truvy ’cause I knew she was close enough to me, where I could play her real well.”

Olympia Dukakis was on hand to accept the award on behalf of the cast and producers. “Steel Magnolias” shared this award with co-winner “Batman” starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson.

The 16th Annual People’s Choice Awards were held at Universal Studios in Hollywood, CA. The show aired on the CBS network.

Dolly wins People’s Choice Award for Favorite Female Performer in a New TV Show

Dolly wins People’s Choice Award for Favorite Female Performer in a New TV Show for herr self-titled show, “Dolly,” which began airing on ABC in September of 1987.

Dolly talked about what motivated her to try the variety show,

”I convinced them that I should be on television. I felt I was sitting around waiting for good scripts for the movies; I wasn’t on the road (doing concerts) so much. So I just decided now was the time for me to do a TV show.”

The other nominees were Lisa Bonet in “A Different World” and Linda Hamilton in “Beauty and the Beast.” In her acceptance speech Dolly said,

“I want to thank all of you very much for voting for me as your favorite because it’s very much an honor to be nominated for any of these awards and it’s really a great honor to win, especially when the people vote for you.”

That same night, Dolly received the award for All-Around Female Entertainer presented to her by Kenny Rogers.

The 14th Annual People’s Choice Awards were telecast on CBS and hosted by Barbara Mandrell and Carl Reiner.

Dolly’s song, ‘9 to 5’ earned a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Song from a Motion Picture

The song appears on her album, “9 to 5 and Odd Jobs.” It is based on the film of the same name in which Dolly starred alongside Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. Dolly explained in her Rolling Stone interview why she accepted the role that inspired the hit song,

“‘Nine to Five’ fascinated me, and I knew instantly that I should do it – I knew that it was a career move. And it fell together really well – just according to my lists.”

Dolly was unable to attend the awards show. Her “9 to 5” co-star, Dabney Coleman, accepted the award on her behalf and Ann Jillian performed the song.

The 7th Annual People’s Choice Awards were held at the Desilu TV studios in Los Angeles, California on, March 9, 1981. The show was broadcast on CBS.
