Last night celebs headed to DC to celebrate five stars from different areas of the entertainment industry with Kennedy Center Honors. Cameron Diaz looked fabulous in her funky strapless dress to present Martin Scorsese with an award for his directorial work. Jordin Sparks (is it just us or is she already looking thinner?) and Vanessa Williams were in the house to pay homage to honoree Diana Ross by performing her songs, while musicians Brian Wilson and Steve Fleischer also walked away with medals around their necks. Steve Carell honored one of our favorite funny men Steve Martin and of course threw in a few of his own jokes, saying, "His act was that of an idiot savant, minus the savant. He's a national treasure in the loosest sense of the term."
We've definitely been missing Steve Carell on The Office, but we're glad that we're still getting a dose of his humor during the show's hiatus. Lots more pics including Aretha Franklin, Martin Short, and Ciara so just read more
