Best: That '9 to 5' Reunion

Only the fates know why we had to wait 37 years to see the most iconic trio of 1980 — Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda — step into the spotlight together again. We're just glad it finally happened. The stars of America's favorite workplace revenge comedy reunited to present the Supporting Actor in a Limited Series award, and to see these three dynamos playing off each other again was a gift.

"Back in 1980, in that movie, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot," Fonda said, and Tomlin finished: "And in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot."
