On Dec. 14, Joe Biden officially became the president-elect after the Electoral College met and certified his win. Although the certification was merely a formality, it became somewhat intriguing due to the whispers of "faithless electors" and President Donald Trump's hope that electors would spurn the will of a pro-Biden state and cast a vote for him (none did). Much of Hollywood, which, by and large, overwhelmingly supported the Biden-Harris ticket, reacted with glee — and a few jokes — despite the fact that the result of the Electoral College's meeting was already known. Late night host Jimmy Kimmel, for instance, tweeted, "congratulations to @realDonaldTrump on his well deserved silver medal!" See who else sounded off on social media after Biden's win was certified…
