Barack Obama will be the President of the United States for four more years -- and Hollywood has plenty to say about that!

Following a divisive and expensive race, Obama, 51, defeated Republican nominee Mitt Romney on Tuesday night, clinching an overwhelming majority of Electoral College votes with voting victories in battleground states like Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Iowa (with Florida still too close to call).
