After what felt like the longest week in American history, the nation breathed a sigh of relief and applauded Boston law enforcement officials, as the manhunt for Boston bombings suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev was captured on Friday night. (Well, according to a Fox affiliate, it was actress Zooey Deschanel, pictured, to which the New Girl actress reacted on Twitter, "Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!"). 

For better or worse, Twitter was the place that so many people went to share information (and misinformation), air their grievances, or even crack a joke during this week's horror and hysteria. But, with the exception of humanity troll Donald Trump, there was a universal mood on the social media site when the news broke that Tsarnaev was in custody: elation and appreciation. 

Celebrities — many with ties to the Boston area (including Joey McIntyre, who finished the race on Monday just moments before the explosions) that dealt with a terrible tragedy that took the lives of three and injured dozens during the marathon bombings, the fatal shooting of an M.I.T. police officer, an intense manhunt, and a lock down within the span of just five days —once again took to Twitter, this time to celebrate, at long last, something good.  

Here are some of the best responses on Twitter out of Hollywood to the big news.
