"Scandal's" Kerry Washington, who hosted part of the Democratic National Convention in August, joined the chorus of performers lauding Biden's win.

Comedian Kathy Griffin, who days earlier had reposted a controversial photo of herself holding a prop meant to look like Trump's severed head, called the president "nothing."


"Crazy Rich Asians" actor Ken Jeong and "A Few Good Men" director Rob Reiner marked Trump's election loss with references to the 1939 classic film, "The Wizard of Oz."


Samantha Bee, host of "Full Frontal," said she was "celebrating" Trump's loss with a video produced four years ago:

Author Stephen King, who once said Trump was "scarier" than his novels, expressed his satisfaction with the race being called for Biden.


Other stars took to social media to root on the president-elect and denounce Trump, even as the president said Saturday that he refused to accept Biden's victory and vowed to fight the election results in court.
