My First Award: Oliver Hudson
TV holiday joy means ‘Wonderful Life,’ Reba, romance, Santa
LOS ANGELES (AP) — In need of a jolt of holiday joy? Or a comforting spot of romance or silliness or spirituality?
Television has you covered. There are classic old movies ("It's a Wonderful Life") and a sleigh full of new wannabes; Christmas carols galore; the majesty of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir; and, for New Year's Eve homebodies, Manhattan's Times Square ball drop among the possibilities.
Here are some of the highlights to consider (all times EST):
Oliver Hudson is reconnecting with estranged father Bill Hudson
Oliver Hudson is reconnecting with his estranged father Bill Hudson.
Back in 2015, the 41-year-old 'Splitting Up Together' star took to Instagram on Father's Day to post a picture of himself, his sister Kate Hudson, and their actor father - who said at the time that his two children with ex-wife Goldie Hawn were dead to him - with the caption: "Happy Abandonment Day (sic)".
Goldie Hawn has finally "graduated" - from pre-school.
The 71-year-old actress joined her son Oliver Hudson and his partner Erinn Bartlett to proudly watch her three-year-old granddaughter Rio at a ceremony to mark the end of her first foray into education and joked it was a big day for her too.
She shared a picture of herself and Rio, wearing flowers in their hair, on Instagram and wrote: "Me and my baby Rio. Pre school Graduation day. At last I graduated!"
