— -- Arguably the best part of the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner isn't the president becoming Comedian-in-Chief for the night -- but the odd couple pairings of Hollywood stars hanging with political power players and media heavy hitters. This year's "Nerd Prom" was no exception, producing a bevy of interesting moments.

Tea Leoni and Madeleine Albright -- The star of "Madam Secretary" meets her real life counterpart, former Secretary of State Albright.

Katie Couric and Justice Antonin Scalia -- The Yahoo News Global Anchor sipped a drink while taking a moment with the SCOTUS judge.

Sophie Turner and Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee -- "Game of Thrones" royalty Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, smiles with ball cap wearing Cohen on the red carpet.

Donald Trump and Melania Trumpp -- The sometimes-politician Trump told ABC's T.J. Holmes that "stranger things have happened," when asked about him possibly hosting the White House Correspondents' Dinner as POTUS in the future.
