Hollywood's top talent is putting their money where their mouths are in supporting their favorite candidates in year's presidential campaign.

According to Business Insider, here's what some of the biggest movers and shakers in entertainment have doled out to their favorite politicians — and not surprisingly, most give to the Democratic contenders:

Hillary Clinton
  • $2,700 donations from Leonardo DiCaprio, Kanye West, Beyonce, Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Witherspoon, Ben Affleck, Tom Hanks, Kate Hudson, Katy Perry, Steven Spielberg, JJ Abrams, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Chuck Lorre.
  • In addition, Priorities USA Action, the super PAC that supports Clinton, got $1 million donations from Spielberg and Katzenberg, while Abrams gave $500,000.
Bernie Sanders
  • $2,700 donations from Danny DeVito, Seth MacFarlane, Bonnie Raitt
Some stars donated to campaigns whose candidates have since dropped out, including Kelsey Grammer who gave Ben Carson and Rand Paul $5,000 apiece, DeVito, who gave $2,700 to Martin O'Malley, and Jerry Bruckheimer, who gave $2,700 to Jeb Bush.

$2,700 is the maximum donation amount allowed by federal campaign finance law to an individual candidate.
