"We had one job."

Donald Trump has won the presidential election, and members of Hollywood — both those who didn't cast their ballots for him Tuesday and those who did — are sharing their thoughts on this historical election.

The Republican candidate led the electoral vote race by winning over the battleground states of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina. Hillary Clinton trailed Trump throughout the night, being almost 40 electoral points behind at one point. 

After the news broke, Trevor Noah, Seth MacFarlane and Judd Apatow shared their shock and anger, while Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jessica Chastain, Mark Duplass and Lupe Fiasco tweeted forward-thinking encouragements. Rose McGowan penned an open letter to the media: "You all had a hand in this. You must take ownership of this situation."

See some of the reactions below. 


9/11- 11/9 we will never forget.
