Hollywood flocked to social media in droves to celebrate Democrat Doug Jones’s victory over Republican Roy Moore in Alabama’s Senate special election Tuesday night.

Politically outspoken celebrities including Chris Evans, Barbra Streisand, Mark Ruffalo, Rose McGowan, Alyssa Milano, Ellen DeGeneres, Pink, and Alec Baldwin all weighed in on Tuesday night’s result, with many thanking Jones and Alabama voters.

Some, like actors Kumail Nanjiani and Alyssa Milano, responded by blasting Moore. Milano had been a vocal supporter of Jones throughout the campaign.

Jones’s victory in the race to replace former Sen. Jeff Sessions shrunk Republicans’s already slim majority in the Senate, cutting it to just one.

Below, find the reaction to Jones’s victory from some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
