Dolly Parton Reunites With Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda at 2017 Emmy Awards
Dolly Parton made a splash at the 2017 Emmy Awards Sunday night (Sept. 17), appearing alongside her longtime friends and 9 to 5 costars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. Parton helped present the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie to Alexander Skarsgard.
The fabulous trio received a spirited standing ovation from the star-studded crowd, which included Keith Urban and his superstar wife Nicole Kidman, who was nominated for her work on the critically acclaimed HBO show Big Little Lies.
Always one to crack a joke, Parton commented, "I'm just hoping that I'm going to get one of those Grace and Frankie vibrators in my swag bag tonight," which garnered big laughs from Fonda, Tomlin and the entire audience.
