The White House Correspondents Dinner, also known as D.C.'s "nerd prom," is just three weeks away, and yet little has come out about which stars will descend on Washington to make the city feel Hollywood-cool for a night.

In part, that may be because this year is expected to be a more muted affair. This dinner marks the fifth since President Barack Obama has been in office, and stars a-plenty were just in D.C. for the inauguration.

Whispers hears that a bit of Washington fatigue has fallen over Los Angeles. Media organizations, which invite A-listers to sit at their table every year, are reporting advertisers, executives and flacks as this year's guests, instead of celebrities. Even the host, Conan O'Brien, has done this schtick before, having hosted the dinner back in 1995.
