(L-R) Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton and Jane Fonda speak at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Sept. 17, 2017 in Los Angeles.

Dolly Parton appeared at the 2017 Emmys with nominees Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, staging a long overdue reunion of the trio's movie 9 to 5.

"I have been waiting to a 9 to 5 reunion since we did the movie," Parton

Both Tomlin and Fonda took a few shots at Donald Trump, comparing him to Dabney Coleman's Franklin Hart Jr. from the 1980 film.

Fonda began, "in 1980, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot boss."

"And in 2017 we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot boss," Tomlin added.

"Tonight we're here to recognize some men who conduct themselves with the utmost integrity," Fonda said, as they announced the award for outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie, which went to Alexander Skarsgard for his work in Big Little Lies.
