Reunion of '9 to 5' stars

Last night’s prestigious event hosted the sweet reunion of the stars of “9 to 5.” Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, and Lily Tomlin were tasked to be the presenters for the “Best Supporting Actor” award in a limited series or movie. “Big Little Lies” actor Alexander Skarsgard won the said title.

The reunion brought much delight to the audience as the two stars broke out a joke using a line from their previous movie. Fonda said that they did not allow a sexist, hypocritical bigot to control them in 1980, which Tomlin supported with a statement saying they still do not allow it in 2017.
