Hollywood stars, it's time to meet the press!

The White House Correspondents' Dinner, held each year to honor journalists, including those who cover Washington, will once again be crowded with celebrity guests this Saturday, as media organizations bring star power to their tables in the Washington Hilton ballroom.

PEOPLE will be hosting Josh Hutcherson; Diane Keaton; Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's daughter Katherine; and Sen. Olympia Snowe.

Among the other VIPs: Lindsay Lohan, George Clooney and Zooey Deschanel – having been invited by Fox News, Time and Bloomberg, respectively, Politico reports. Ms. Lohan will be guest of Fox's Greta Van Susteren and accompanied by her lawyer, Shawn Holley.

Other A-listers expected to attend include Charlize Theron, Sofia Vergara, Viola Davis, Daniel Day-Lewis, Dakota Fanning, Jason Schwartzman, Aziz Ansari, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. Kim Kardashian will again be a guest of Fox.

President Obama, of course, will be the singular man of honor.

The dinner usually features a comedian as emcee. This year, it's Jimmy Kimmel. Speaking to Reuters, the ABC talk-show host admitted he was nervous to perform in front of the president, but said the political season has given him plenty of material.

"I will feast on stupid comments," he said. "There seems to be a glut of dumb things being said."
