Hollywood weighed in on social media during Sunday night’s Democrat presidential debate, with many progressive-minded celebrities loudly cheering for the insurgent Sen. Bernie Sanders as he squared off against Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley in South Carolina.

While some superstars like Katy Perry took to Twitter to reaffirm their support for Clinton, others praised the fiery Sanders, who sparred with Clinton on issues including healthcare, gun control, and the economy.

Perry enthusiastically tweeted her support for Clinton, while Rosie O’Donnell, Kat Dennings, Debra Messing, and director Ron Howard all re-tweeted pro-Hillary tweets.

Meanwhile, James Woods was having none of it.
