Wisconsin Stuns Kentucky to Reach NCAA Championship: Hollywood Reacts
Ashley Judd, Jessica Szohr and Larry Wilmore were among those sharing their thoughts.
Kentucky's undefeated streak didn't quite last long enough.
In a Final Four showdown between two top-seeded teams, Wisconsin upset the Wildcats 71-64 on Saturday and will face off against Duke in the NCAA Championship game Monday. Kentucky had been 38-0 this season prior to the game.
Many prominent entertainment and sports figures took to Twitter to weigh in on the surprising outcome, and their tweets can be seen below.
