WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- A conservative group plans to take out billboards in Hollywood "thanking" celebrities for helping re-elect President Bush.

Human Events magazine said that Citizens United has rented three billboards near the Kodak Theatre -- the permanent home of the Academy Awards -- for the month of February, including Feb. 27, when the Oscars will be presented.

One billboard features the faces of Ben Affleck, Chevy Chase, Whoopi Goldberg, Michael Moore, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen and Barbra Streisand with the caption: "4 more years. Thank you Hollywood!" The second billboard contains the caption: "W. Still President."

"We're taking on Hollywood," said Citizens United President David Bossie. "We've done it in the past."

A spokesman for Streisand had no comment Friday.
