Parton Split Over Oscar Choice

Subscribe To:

Dolly Parton faces an Oscar night dilemma because she doesn't know which actress to cheer for.

The singer, who is nominated for Best Song and will perform at the Academy Awards next month (MAR06), is split between Reese Witherspoon and Felicity Huffman.

Huffman starred in Transamerica, the film Parton helped to score, but the country legend loved Witherspoon's portrayal of JUNE CARTER CASH in Walk the Line.

Parton says, "I'm kind of in a dilemma with my little Reese Witherspoon from Nashville. I know her and am so proud of her.

"Then there's Felicity, who is also up in the same movie I have the song (TRAVELIN' THRU) in... I'm going to have to cheer for both teams."
