Lily Tomlin can still remember the moment she knew her comedy 9 to 5 with Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton would be a success.

The 1980 hit comedy followed three working women living out their fantasies of getting even with their sexist boss.

9 Great Live Performances from Dolly Parton, Our Forever Queen

19 January 2017 11:38 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

National treasure Dolly Parton turns 71 on Thursday, Jan. 19. There’s a long list of reasons why Dolly is forever No. 1 in our hearts — her wit, charm, benevolence — but first and foremost, it’s her music. As she’s grown into more of a cultural icon and celebrated personality, it can occasionally be difficult to remember that Parton is primarily an astonishingly talented musician. So we scoured the YouTube archives for some videos to prove just that. Enjoy.

“Appalachian Memories,” 1985:

Parton announces that the next song is “for all the hard-workin’ daddies” out there, which elicits a loud “wooo” from a member of the audience. »

Dolly Parton is queen of many things—country music, big hair, and wisecracks, to name a few. And although she frequently claims she “isn’t in style,” we have to disagree—Dolly’s big hair and Southern look has become so iconic that she’s actually created one all for herself.

Newswire: Lily Tomlin’s lifetime achievement award celebration will be a 9 To 5 reunion

17 January 2017 10:40 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It makes sense that Jane Fonda would be on hand for this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, where Lily Tomlin is set to receive a lifetime achievement award. After all, both are nominated for their work in Grace And Frankie. But the SAGs aren’t going to pass up on the potential for a full-scale 9 To 5 reunion. The show’s executive producer announced today that Fonda will present Tomlin with her big honor alongside Dolly Parton, who hopefully will just do her tribute as a musical number. Even if we don’t get a performance of the theme song from the 1980 film, Violet, Judy, and Doralee will be together once again right when we could use some badass ladies taking on sexist jerks.

The SAG Awards are set to take place January 29. No word on whether Dabney Coleman is also expected to attend, but if ...
