Here are Hollywood's biggest donors in the 2016 election -- and how much they're spending
From more than a million dollars in donations to a relatively meager few thousand, Hollywood A-listers are putting money forward to support their favorite presidential hopefuls in the 2016 election.
Hillary Clinton has raised the most money during the campaign, and this is especially true when it comes to power players in the entertainment world. Both Steven Spielberg and studio head Jeffrey Katzenberg have donated more than a million to support her run. However, as the New York Times points out, the upper echelon of donors in elections tends to include more people from finance and energy.
Business Insider has compiled reporting on contributions and searched the Federal Election Commission database to highlight the biggest donors from Hollywood in the current election. While not a comprehensive list (there are many, many smaller amounts coming from individuals in entertainment), it includes the largest known sums and only focuses on donations of $2,500 or more.
Here are the top Hollywood backers in the election, the campaigns they're supporting, and how much they've given:
