As much as Hollywood hates Donald Trump, it’s amazing how many of them actually watched the nominee’s highly anticipated RNC speech last night. What’s less amazing were the typical cries of doom and gloom on their Twitter feeds in the wake of Trump’s remarks.

A lot of celebrities had a real problem with how long the speech, which clocked in at over an hour, lasted. Many took to Twitter to vent their frustration. Seinfeld and Veepactress Julia Louis-Dreyfus demanded to know “Is this speech going to end soon? I’ve had it. “Tremendous problem” #RNCinCLE.”

Jeffrey Wright, known from The Hunger Games and Casino Royale, didn’t realize that watching the speech was actually optional.

The Good Wife actor Alan Cumming was extremely disappointed:

“I am bored of you @realDonaldTrump
I actually thought you were a better entertainer. But no, you are not even good at that #shabby

Actress Mia Farrow suggested that it “Helps if you turn down the sound. And maybe take a clonipin” for those who didn’t want to just change the channel.

Singer Clay Aiken lamented that:

All of Me singer John Legend used the speech’s length as a reason to vote for Hillary:

Michael Moore was one of many who compared the speech to that of a certain Nazi dictator, writing “To paraphrase Molly Ivins, I think this speech read better in the original German.”

Maybe not quite Hitler, but Josh Groban definitely thought Trump look monarchical:
