Even Donald Trump can’t deny that Hillary Clinton has Hollywood on her side.

After Morgan Freeman, Shonda Rhimes and fellow “Scandal” executive producer Betsy Beers created an Oscar-worthy intro video about Clinton’s life and career ahead of her historic nomination acceptance speech Thursday night, the biggest stars in entertainment pledged their support on social media.

“So moved, Herstory in the making tonight!” Jennifer Lopez tweeted.

Kelly Clarkson pledged her vote using the hashtag “#ImWithHer.”

Actor Josh Gad said he was voting for Clinton because, “#ImWithHer because she inspires. #ImWithHer because she doesn’t instill hatred. #ImWithHer because she is with all of us.”

“Glass ceiling Cracked Wide Open!” gushed Oprah Winfrey.

Thursday’s Democratic Convention speaker lineup in Philadelphia included Carole King, Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen (two of Clinton’s closest Hollywood confidants), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Chloe Grace Moretz, with a live performance by Katy Perry.
