Hollywood comes to Washington, D.C. this weekend for the 35th annual Kennedy Center Honors.

Each year, the Honors celebrate the careers of seven individuals for their life’s work.

This year, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin will receive awards, as well as actor Dustin Hoffman, comedian David Letterman, Russian ballerina Natalia Marakova and blues singer Buddy Guy.

Jack Black, the Foo Fighters and Lenny Kravitz will pay tribute to Led Zeppelin during Sunday’s star-studded ceremony, The Daily Caller has learned.

Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and Jimmy Kimmel will be there to honor the longtime “Late Show” host, while screen legend Robert De Niro will be there to celebrate his “Meet the Fockers” co-star Dustin Hoffman.

The honorees will be given their awards at a ceremony held by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Saturday, and greeted by President Barack Obama and the first lady prior to the ceremony and performance on Sunday.

The Kennedy Center Honors airs Dec. 26 on CBS.
