Stars of the 1980s film 9 to 5, Jane Fonda, 79, Lily Tomlin, 78, and Dolly Parton, 71, reunited at the Emmys on Sunday night.


The Hollywood legends presented the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie to Alexander Skarsgård for Big Little Lies. The trio received a standing ovation, 37 years after their 9 to 5 success. “Well, thank you, that’s nice,” Parton said to the crowd. “Personally, I have been waiting for a 9 to 5 reunion ever since we did the first one.”

“Well back in 1980 in that movie, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” Fonda said. “And in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” Tomlin chimed in. The crowd exploded in applause at the shot at Donald Trump.

Following their clear political message, the three went on to have some fun when announcing the nominees. Parton joked that without support, “shock and awe would be more like flopsy and droopy,” she said, pointing at her breasts. And then later added that she hoped for a Gracie & Frankie vibrator in her Emmys swag bag.
