They posed together on the red carpet with the signs, protesting the Immigration Ban that President Donald Trump put in place, banning refugees of seven nations from entering the United States.

Ashton Kutcher, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the cast of Orange Is the New Black were just a few more famous face who also took a moment to speak out against the ban during the awards show.
