White House Correspondents’ Dinner Leftovers

If you were busy watching “Dateline” or “48 Hours” Saturday night, and missed the 2014 White House Correspondents Association dinner, we’ve got a few highlights. Here’s the video shown during the dinner of the VP and the Veep, Joe Biden and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, with acknowledgements of David Gregory and Chuck Todd.

The WHCA also commissioned a video to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the organization, produced, appropriately, by the History Channel with a voiceover from ABC’s Diane Sawyer.

And for dessert, John Oliver has his take on the night, as seen on last night’s “Last Week Tonight.”

“The main purpose of the evening,” Oliver says, “seems to be providing photos of glamorous celebrities completely unaware of who they are standing next to.” WATCH: Read more

Behind the Scenes at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

For the White House Correspondents’ Association, it’s a night to celebrate the free press. For Joel McHale, it’s a night where “a guy like me can stand before the president, the press and Patrick Duffy, and tell jokes without severe repercussions.” And for TVNewser, it’s a night where the people we cover all year — executives, producers, reporters and anchors from every major network — are all together in the same room: the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which we attended this year as a guest of ABC News.

Our night began outside the entrance to the ballroom at the Washington Hilton, where we overheard now-NBC News correspdonent Cynthia McFadden ask for directions to the ABC News party. We followed her in, and a few minutes later we were chatting with Diane Sawyer, who told us she always looks forward to the Correspondents’ Dinner, and James Goldston, who said he was pleased with his first few weeks as ABC News president. In the back of the room, Fox News anchors Ainsley Earhardt and Kimberly Guilfoyle posed for a picture with Sofia Vergara; Earhardt told us afterwards that she’s “having a blast” anchoring “Fox & Friends First,” despite the crazy hours. We spotted Katie Couric chatting with former Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman and his daughter, Abby Huntsman, who is a co-host of MSNBC’s “The Cycle.”

Wolf Blitzer made the rounds with Diane Lane. We saw NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and ABC’s Lara Spencer snap a picture with Tony Goldwyn from “Scandal.” We spent a few minutes with Rebecca Jarvis, and chatted with Alicia Menendez about her participation in the TVNewser Show as well as her Twitter habit.

On the way into the ballroom, we spotted Guthrie and her husband, Mike Feldman, chatting with Bret Baier and his wife Amy. We saw Jessica Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson, chatting with fans. Simpson’s ex, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, was also at the WHCD as a guest of Fox News. Read more

‘Veep’ Julia Louis-Dreyfus on Sarah Palin

Tonight on Piers Morgan‘s show, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is on to talk about her new HBO show “Veep” which bows Sunday.

Morgan asks the actress if she had “more or less sympathy” for Fox News political analyst Sarah Palin as Louis-Dreyfus prepared for her role as the Vice President. “I have more sympathy for all women in government. I think that being…a woman in a position of power is tricky,” she says. “I think the more women we have in power the better off our country will be.”

“More Sarah Palins?” Morgan asks. “No. Not more Sarah Palins in my opinion,” adding, “I’d like a hundred more female democrats.”
