'Kennedy Center Honors': Watch the Buddy Guy tribute that stole the show, President Obama rock out for Led Zeppelin -- VIDEO

The 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors aired last night (read Ken Tucker’s review here), and it was another ceremony filled with memorable moments. Here are a few of the highlights that have already surfaced on YouTube:

Beth Hart’s performance of “I’d Rather Go Blind” with Jeff Beck for honoree Buddy Guy moved the crowd in the theater (including Barack and Michelle Obama, watch them at 2:32 in the clip below) and at home (I know I went to iTunes and purchased that song off of her album with Joe Bonamassa, Don’t Explain) READ FULL STORY

UPDATE: Oprah Winfrey parties with Jane Fonda, Alan Rickman as Nancy and Ronald Reagan in 'The Butler' -- PHOTO

What would happen if Oprah Winfrey partied with Nancy and Ronald Reagan? It would hopefully look like the image to the right, which Winfrey posted to Instagram from the set of director Lee Daniels’ The Butler. The film is based on the life of Eugene Allen (played by Forest Whitaker), a man who worked at the White House through eight presidencies, from Dwight Eisenhower to Ronald Reagan. Winfrey, who plays Whitaker’s wife, captioned this shot: “Director Lee Daniels, Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan, Alan Rickman as Prez Reagan, and me … gonna be a long nite.” Gotta love that both Fonda and Rickman remain in character.

Daniels has landed an all-star cast to play the famous residents of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington D.C. in his film. Along with Fonda and Rickman, there’s Robin Williams (President Dwight D. Eisenhower),  Melissa Leo (Mamie Eisenhower), James Marsden (President John F. Kennedy), Minka Kelly (Jackie Kennedy), Liev Schreiber (President Lyndon B. Johnson), and John Cusack (President Richard M. Nixon). The film also boasts several more heavy hitters in non-presidential roles, including Vanessa Redgrave, Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr., Mariah Carey, and Lenny Kravitz.

In fact, check out another photo Winfrey posted to Instagram account of her and Kravitz from the set of The Butler below:  READ FULL STORY
