Lily Tomlin juxtaposes Trump's presidency to Nazi Germany

Jan 31, 2017, 00:32

In the midst of a politically dour Screen Actors Guild Awards, the country legend came through with more than enough pep for all of us. The star attended the Hollywood event in order to honor her close friend and '9 to 5′ co-star Lily Tomlin with a Lifetime Achievement Award. They kept wanting to see my IDs... well I think it was IDs. "I wanted to get that off my chest".

Besides former co-stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, Dolly couldn't stop herself from mentioning her other famous' girlfriends'. "It was something with IDs, maybe double D's", Parton joked as she took the spotlight. "They did stay in, and they worked OK", she admitted.

Parton's speech was amusing, but she was there for a very serious reason. Parton was just glad the award wasn't going to her.

Lily Tomlin accepting the Life Achievement Award at the 2017 SAG Awards. "Sag award? If I see something sagging, dragging and bagging I'm gonna call Dr. Markowitz to get that nipped up and sucked right away".

Over the course of her illustrious career, Tomlin has won Grammy Awards, Tony Awards, a Kennedy Center Honors, and the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. With her big hair, glittery dresses, and adorable personality, she's got to be one of my favorite people ever. During her SAG Awards speech, Parton got a round of applause when she suggested the idea of a 9 to 5 reunion - but Tomlin tells WUSA-TV that she and Fonda are now focused on getting Parton to appear on Grace and Frankie instead.

"When the great Ruth Gordon received an Oscar for the first time at 72, she said, 'I can't tell you how encouraging a thing like this can be, '" Tomlin continued. If you're already out, you must learn to tell when you've had too much to drink.

"Don't be anxious about missing an opportunity".

PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly are hosting the official live pre-show for the SAG Awards on Sunday, Jan. 29, in partnership with TNT and sponsored by Dunkin' Donuts. "Behind every failure is an opportunity someone wishes they had missed", she joked.

Without even trying, she had the whole audience laughing with her.
