The White House Correspondents' Association Dinner will take place Saturday night with President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama confirmed to attend as the highlighted guests.
ABC's late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel will host the event, which is taking place at the Washington Hilton and is the 98th annual dinner.
The White House Correspondents' Association dinner is traditionally attended by the U.S. president and the first lady, and sees various government officials, press representatives, as well as celebrities come together for the event.
The event is also used to raise money for a scholarships program, as well as to support awards to recognize excellence in journalism.
The dinner tradition began in the 1920s as a modest gathering of politicians and reporters who covered them. Since then, it's developed into a recognized and celebrated event where the U.S. president is expected to make an entertaining speech in front of top journalists and celebrities.
During last year's event President Obama mocked Donald Trump and any thoughts he had of making a bid for the White House. The event traditionally sees the president poking fun at Washington institutions and other politicians, and this year is expected to be no different.
Winners of this year's awards include ABC'S Jake Tapper, The Washington Post's Scott Wilson, and reporting teams from Politico and The Associated Press.
