We’re not sure what was more moving, the Suicide Squad actress’ incredible speech or the outpouring of love for Viola on Twitter following her win?! LOVES it.
In fact, many of Hollywood’s A-list joined Miz Union and Miz Washington on the social media site to send their praise and adoration to the 50-year-old — including Oprah Winfrey, Diddy, Laverne Cox, and many more.
Ch-ch-check out their responses below:
