Mariska Hargitay, Richard Belzer Attend White House Correspondents’ Dinner (AKA ‘Nerd Prom”)

Mariska Hargitay and Richard Belzer, both of Law & Order SVU, were in attendance at last night’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. The dinner is sometimes referred to as the ‘Nerd Prom” as it is a big night for Washington D.C. journalists. The dinner is always a hot ticket, but this year it pulled in a lot more entertainment celebrities than normal. I wonder why I wasn’t invited?

The New York Times reported that Richard Belzer “turned left and held court at the bar. “The difference is palpable,” Mr. Belzer said, who attended the dinner once before during the Bush years. “It just seems more glamorous. Now it’s rock-star, Kennedy elegance.” “Nothing wrong with being cool,” he added quickly.

Here are some pictures of The Belz, and Mariska and her husband Peter Hermann at the event.

Be grateful you didn't go. You're too cool for that, anyway. Heh.
