Never before has the nickname “Nerd Prom” been more appropriate for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Each year, hundreds of journalists and politicians are joined by a handful of seemingly random celebrities to watch the president give a (hopefully) funny speech and get roasted in return. This year, the three most interesting guests were undoubtedly Tom Hiddleston, Carrie Fisher, and her dog Gary.
Gary is a constant presence at Carrie Fisher’s side, and even has his own social media following on Twitter and Instagram. He’s also a professional therapy dog, which is how he’s wound up being allowed everywhere, from movie premieres to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Saturday night proved that Carrie Fisher has invented the ultimate formula for red carpet success: Show up with Tom Hiddleston on one arm and an adorable French bulldog on the other. As ever, a true role model to us all.
