A morning mix of entertainment headlines...
The White House correspondents’ dinner, a.ka. the nerd prom, went down in Washington this weekend, which you already know if you follow Celebritology’s Twitter feed or this blog. In case you missed some of the crucial tidbits from the weekend, here’s a round-up of news from The Washington Post, with more to come in Celebritology later today.
Celebritology hit the pre-parties on Friday and spoke to Daniel Dae-Kim ; summarized the event in photos with silly captions; got George Clooney to comment on Noah Wyle’s recent arrest; and talked to “Glee’s” Matthew Morrison about fellow dinner attendee Lindsay Lohan’s guest spot on the show. “The work got done,” he said.
The Reliable Source’s notes from the scene include Woody Harrelson being confused for Matthew McConaughey ; Diane Keaton being cornered by an “Annie Hall” fan; George Clooney working it like a champ; and an account of Jimmy Kimmel’s speech.
President Obama gave America’s sweetheart a shout-out in a bit that preceded his speech: “What am I doing here? I’m opening for Jimmy Kimmel and telling knock-knock jokes to Kim Kardashian.” (AP)
