Top Ten Moments in Celebrity Activism

The Los Angeles Times’ Tina Daunt has created a list of ten moments to remember from 2008 when celebrity and politics merged, often in unexpected ways. Included: Paris Hilton’s response to McCain’s "Celeb" ad, Norman Lear’s mobilization of young voters via Declare Yourself and George Clooney’s play it cool support of Obama.

Not on the list, but not exactly an activist, is Tina Fey. She did, however, make it to the AFI’s "moments of significance" of 2008.
