Pour yourself a cup of ambition, because this is an ‘80s dream come true: Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton will present Lily Tomlin’s lifetime achievement prize at the Screen Actors Guild Awards later this month.

Fonda, Parton and Tomlin starred in the successful 1980 feminist comedy “9 to 5,” playing secretaries who team up to take down their sexist boss. The film has since earned spot No. 74 on the American Film Institute’s list of greatest comedies, and Parton’s title song was nominated for an Oscar and three Grammys. The trio have also remained friends, making regular public appearances together over the years and hinting at a potential on-screen “9 to 5” reunion ― Parton recently floated the possibility of appearing on Fonda and Tomlin’s Netflix series, “Grace and Frankie.”

But now it appears they’ve decided not to wait for casting directors to get their act together. (What a way to make a living!

The SAG Awards air live on TBS and TNT on Jan. 29. In the meantime, you can make your day a little better with these photos celebrating Tomlin, Fonda and Parton’s friendship:
