James Woods Defends Dolly Parton Over Anti-Trump Emmys Presentation

Country music legend Dolly Parton participated in the Emmys to present the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. Joining her onstage were her 9 to 5 co-stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, who made their presentation a political statement against President Donald Trump.

James Woods, who worked with Parton on the film Straight Talk, insists Parton would never have approved of Tomlin’s and Fonda’s anti-Trump sentiment.

Woods said in a tweet that they had “sandbagged” Parton.

Sandbagging, according to the Urban Dictionary, refers to placing someone “on the spot in front of a large crowd,” resulting in their dignity sinking like a sandbag.

Woods asks fans not to judge Parton for the statements of the “gargoyles” next to her. He argues Parton was “so off-guard” that she was “literally speechless.”

After the three gathered on stage, Fonda began their presentation by referencing the movie 9 to 5.

“In that movie, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” said Fonda.

“And in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” added Tomlin.

When Tomlin speaks Parton has a shocked expression on her face.

After Fonda and Tomlin finished, according to the Tennessean, Parton attempted to defuse the situation.

“I think that Lily was talking about Mr. Hart,” she said, referring to the 9 to 5 villain who was played by Dabney Coleman.

“He’s still up to his no good stuff, right? How about a shout out for Dabney Coleman out there? I’m just here to have a good time tonight,” Parton said.

Parton has yet to comment on the presentation.
