On Wednesday, Mary Tyler Moore passed away at 80 in Greenwich, Connecticut.  Moore’s family said her death was caused by cardiopulmonary arrest after she had caught pneumonia.

Moore was revered for her hugely popular television shows, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and The Dick Van Dyke Show in the 1960s and 70s.  Moore is recognized by many as the person who pioneered the “modern career woman” character on TV.  Moore’s longtime representative Mara Buxbaum described her as, “A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile.”

Dick Van Dyke wrote a touching tribute letter to the late Moore, in which he said, “She left an imprint on television comedy.”  Dyke wrote of The Mary Tyler Moore Show: “It was a milestone, that show. It kicked off an awful lot of enthusiasm in a lot of women. She got it moving!”

Celebrities including Dick Van Dyke, Miley Cyrus, Ben Stiller, Ellen DeGeneres, Michael Keaton, Cher and Oprah Winfrey have paid tribute to Moore on Twitter and Instagram.  The WANNA has gathered the best celebrity reactions below.

MARTIN SHEEN, DEBRA MESSING AND MORE CELEBS WANT THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE TO VOTE AGAINST TRUMP

A group of celebrities have come together in a new PSA to urge the Republican members of the Electoral College to change the outcome of the 2016 Election and deny Donald Trump the Presidency.  The celebrities that take part in the video are Martin Sheen, Debra Messing, James Cromwell, BD Wong, Noah Wyle, Freda Payne, Bob Odenkirk, J. Smith Cameron, Michael Urie, Moby, Mike Farrell, Loretta Swit, Richard Schiff, Christine Lahti, Steven Pasquale, Dominic Fumusa, Emily Tyra, and Talia Balsam.  Martin Sheen kicks off the video saying, “Republican voters of the Electoral College, this message is for you.”  Debra Messing says that Trump “lacks the necessary stability” to be President of the United States.  The celebs go on to urge the Electoral College members to vote for anyone other than Trump: “I’m not asking you to vote for Hillary Clinton…Any eligible person, no matter which party they belong to.”

The celebs then address the EC directly: “You have the position, the authority, and the opportunity to go down in the books as an American hero who changed the course of history.”

Watch the whole PSA below.

This video seems to model the Joss Whedon directed PSAs during the campaign in which celebs such as Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson said don’t vote for Trump.  You can check out The WANNA’s previous post on all the 2016 political PSAs here.

The WANNA wants to hear from you!  Are you happy with the 2016 Election results?  Or do you agree with these celebrities about a revote against Trump?

ROBERT DOWNEY JR, SCARLETT JOHANSSON AND OTHER CELEBS WANT YOU TO “GET OUT THERE AND VOTE”

Election Day is tomorrow, November 8th, which means the craziest Presidential race in U.S. history will finally come to a close.  Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will take their place in the Oval Office as Commander in Chief.  But there is still a good chunk of Americans who have chosen not to cast a ballot for this particular Election.

Throughout the campaigns, celebrities such as Robert DeNiro, Kathy Griffin, Aziz Ansari, and tons more, have appeared in videos urging people to vote, usually against Trump.  You can revisit The WANNA’s previous roundup of celeb-driven videos here.

In a new SaveTheDay.Vote video, “Vote Tomorrow,” released Monday November 7th, director Joss Whedon rounded up several Hollywood celebrities in a final attempt to encourage people to go out and vote.  In “Vote Tomorrow”, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, James Franco, Neil Patrick Harris, and others urge viewers to “just get out and vote” on November 8th.  They add humor to the video, along with more serious intonations, such as Julianne Moore saying, “No one has the right to stop you from casting your vote.”

Watch the full video below, and then make sure to get out and cast your vote tomorrow!

WHO ARE THE CELEBS THAT WON'T BE VOTING FOR TRUMP NOVEMBER 8TH? WATCH THIS...

It's no surprise that when it comes to politics, the majority of A-listers tend to lean to the left and the 2016 Presidential election is no exception.  Safe to say, the current Presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, is a screenplay no one could have written.  Of course Tinsel Town still has a Conservative following but, several famous Democrats have made it their mission to publicly denounce Trump and stand behind Hillary this election year!  Over the years, Hollywood is known for creating PSA’s that encourage fans to vote.  This year, several stars took the message one step further and flat out revealed why you don't wanna vote for Trump.

The WANNA curated a list of celebs below, who took the time to create PSA’s and "video" messages that share one very clear message, vote for Hillary!

Kathy Griffin

The comedian says “Donald, F*** Off!” in this hilarious new take on a moving Hillary Clinton campaign video.

Aziz Ansari

Actor and comedian Aziz Ansari sarcastically addresses the fact that people seem to “need” celebrity voting ads to actually get out and vote.  On the more serious note, Ansari asserts that Trump “doesn’t believe in climate change” and “hates brown people.”

Robert DeNiro

This is one of the more scathing and direct anti-Trump videos, in which Robert DeNiro calls Trump a number of things, including “pig,” “blatantly stupid,” and says he would like to “punch him in the face.”  This one needs to be seen to be believed.

Keegan-Michael Key

Key & Peele star Keegan-Michael Key hilariously “forecasts” a Donald Trump presidency in this video from Joss Whedon.  Key references “smug looks” and “morons” who don’t believe in climate change, an apparent jab at Trump.

Joss Whedon Star-Packed “Save the Day” PSA

Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, James Franco, Julianne Moore, and more A-listers appear in this PSA created by Joss Whedon to address the more serious issues facing us this election.  One bit in particular has Don Cheadle emphatically calling out a “racist, abusive coward,” a not-so-subtle prod at Trump.  The celebs also address, “A man whose signature move is firing things.”  They insist that, “Every vote matters,” and jokingly bribe viewers with a Mark Ruffalo “nude scene” in his next movie.

Leonardo DiCaprio

In this short but important video, Leonardo DiCaprio, a longtime environmental activist and UN Representative for climate change, indirectly speaks about Trump’s ignorance to climate change.  If Leo can’t convince people to get out and vote, then no one can!
