40+ Celebrities Celebrate Joe Biden And Kamala Harris Winning The 2020 US Presidential Election

For many of them, this victory feels like the time to heal has come

As possibly the best news that the world can all share in this 2020, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have won the US Presidential elections and will be sworn into office a little more than two months from today. 


The final results came in the wee hours of the morning, Manila time, but America had been wide awake for days, including Hollywood celebrities that campaigned for Biden-Harris and proudly celebrated the tandem's emotional—and in many respects, historic—win.




A number of Hollywood celebrities reacting to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris' election didn't hold back with how enthusiastic they were at all the changes they can now look forward to with a change in administration. Many of them talked about rebuilding a society with tolerance and not division, how Kamala Harris has become the biggest role model for women of color this year, and how it would be good to take Joe Biden's advice—which was to celebrate their wins, and not the losses of their opponents. 



See what the 44th US President Barack Obama and his wife, former First Lady of the US Michelle Obama, had to say about this historic victory:

I could not be prouder to congratulate our next President, Joe Biden, and our next First Lady, Jill Biden. I also couldn’t be prouder to congratulate Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff for Kamala’s groundbreaking election as our next Vice President. In this election, under circumstances never experienced, Americans turned out in numbers never seen. And once every vote is counted, President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris will have won a historic and decisive victory. We’re fortunate that Joe’s got what it takes to be President and already carries himself that way. Because when he walks into the White House in January, he’ll face a series of extraordinary challenges no incoming President ever has – a raging pandemic, an unequal economy and justice system, a democracy at risk, and a climate in peril. I know he’ll do the job with the best interests of every American at heart, whether or not he had their vote. So I encourage every American to give him a chance and lend him your support. The election results at every level show that the country remains deeply and bitterly divided. It will be up to not just Joe and Kamala, but each of us, to do our part – to reach out beyond our comfort zone, to listen to others, to lower the temperature and find some common ground from which to move forward, all of us remembering that we are one nation, under God. Finally, I want to thank everyone who worked, organized, and volunteered for the Biden campaign, every American who got involved in their own way, and everybody who voted for the first time. Your efforts made a difference. Enjoy this moment. Then stay engaged. I know it can be exhausting. But for this democracy to endure, it requires our active citizenship and sustained focus on the issues – not just in an election season, but all the days in between. Our democracy needs all of us more than ever. And Michelle and I look forward to supporting our next President and First Lady however we can.

I’m beyond thrilled that my friend Joe Biden and our first Black and Indian-American woman Vice President, Kamala Harris, are headed to restore some dignity, competence, and heart at the White House. Our country sorely needs it. Thank you to all of you who poured every ounce of your hope and determination into this democracy over these past four years, registering voters, getting them to the polls, keeping folks informed. More votes were cast in this election than ever before. It’s because of you. And after we celebrate — and we should all take a moment to exhale after everything we’ve been through — let’s remember that this is just a beginning. It’s a first step. Voting in one election isn’t a magic wand, and neither is winning one. Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division. We’ve got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us. But we’ve also got to recognize that the path to progress will always be uphill. We’ll always have to scrape and crawl up toward that mountaintop. And two years from now, four years from now, there will once again be no margin for error. We see now the reality that we can’t take even the tiniest part of our democracy for granted. Every single vote must count — and every single one of us must vote. And as a country, we should be making it easier, not harder to cast a ballot. So it’s up to us to stay engaged and informed, to keep speaking out and marching on. We’ve got to vote in even greater numbers in the upcoming Senate runoffs in Georgia — and every state and local election going forward. We’ve got to promise each other that our focus in this election won’t be an anomaly, but the rule. That’s how we can not only feel this way right now, but in the months and years ahead. It’s the only way we’ll build a nation worthy of our children. My warmest congratulations again to Joe and Jill, Kamala and Doug — and each of you who stepped up when your country needed you.

We can't ignore good old Jennifer Lawrence. She didn't write about how she felt about the elections. Instead, she made herself heard. Enjoy this clip of her going nuts at the news on the street, in her PJs, and with her spirits soaring.



She could have been joined by Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness who was just as enthusiastic. 



And award-winning director Spike Lee who took to the streets and jumped for joy with a champagne bottle in hand. 




While another filmmaker, Jordan Peele, knew exactly what to say for maximum impact. 



Comedian and writer-actor Kumali Nanjiani of Silicon Valley, a Pakistani-American, didn't hold back either. 



And last but not least we have Lin Manuel Miranda who referenced his own musical Hamilton to send the message.
