A bevy of Oscars front-runners — including Emma Stone, Matthew McConaughey, Natalie Portman, Taraji P. Henson, Amy Adams and Chris Pine — has a message ahead of next week’s inauguration of President-elect Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpCensus Bureau intends to wrap up count on Oct. 5 despite judge's order Top House Republican calls for probe of source of NYT Trump tax documents New Yorkers report receiving ballots with wrong name, voter addresses MORE: “I Will Survive.”
 
The group of A-listers all appear in a video produced by W magazine singing the 1979 Gloria Gaynor hit.
 
In a story accompanying the celeb-filled tune, the magazine writes, “While the song has long been interpreted through a socially conscious lens, it's the kind of anthem we need now more than ever with the inauguration bearing down on us. With an impending Donald Trump presidency, I will survive.”

None of the stars mentions Trump in the music video released Wednesday.
 
But the “dramatic interpretation,” W mag writes, “is just the antidote for a still-grieving Hollywood, many members of which were outspoken Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonOvernight Defense: Government funding bill butts up against deadline | Pentagon reports eighth military COVID-19 death | Trump, Pentagon collide over anti-diversity training push Voters split on whether Trump, Biden will win first debate: poll New Monmouth poll finds Biden with 6-point lead MORE supporters over the past year — and a few of whom have found themselves on the unfriendly end of Donald Trump’s Twitter account.”
 
The Oscar hopefuls are just the latest entertainers to get political.
 
Meryl Streep made headlines around the world when she delivered an impassioned speech criticizing Trump while accepting the Cecil B. Demille Award at last week’s Golden Globes. 
 
“When the powerful use their position to bully others,” she said of the president-elect, “we all lose.”
 
In an interview published last week in Vanity Fair magazine, Madonna lamented what she described as “how quiet everybody is” in her industry when it comes to politics. 
 
“I mean, nobody in the entertainment business except for maybe a handful of people ever speak out about what's going on. Nobody takes a political stance or expresses an opinion.”
 
But last month, actor Mark Wahlberg encouraged fellow performers to keep their mouths shut about political issues. 
 
The “Deepwater Horizon“ star told Task & Purpose of stars who get political, “They did, do, and shouldn’t.” He added, “A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble.”
