Sophia Bush is feeling hopeful.
Just ahead of the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Chicago P.D. actress spoke to Et about why she believes in the power of storytelling amid a tumultuous political landscape.

Moore died on Wednesday at the age of 80, from cardiopulmonary arrest after she had contracted pneumonia.

"I would go to Mary's apartment on 5th Avenue to give her golden retriever, Dash, a bath," Day recalls. "She was always so much fun -- we would spray water in each other's faces and sit on the floor and sing. She would always get me lunch."
Day will never forget Moore's quick actions one harrowing day.

Candice Bergen visited Today show to say her CBS single-newswomen sitcom Murphy Brown owed an enormous debt to Mary Tyler Moore’s eponymous CBS sitcom a decade earlier.

That sitcom, which ran seven years on the network, “made women feel entitled to a… »
Moore portrayed an independent woman working in news in the 1970s hit sitcom, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and a decade later, Bergen got the opportunity to portray a tough female TV journalist on Murphy Brown.
"Mary Tyler Moore really opened the door for women not defined by a relationship, for women trying to have a career," Bergen told the Today show on Thursday, a day after Moore's death. "[Her show] also opened the door to quality television, because the writing was so exceptional and had such depth and was character-driven."
While Bergen and Moore's career inevitably draw comparisons -- both women received five Emmys each for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for their sitcom roles -- Bergen insisted that Moore was "in her own »
