It was the annual White House correspondents' dinner on Saturday, hosted by the late-night talk star Jimmy Kimmel, and the Comedian-in-Chief Barack Obama didn't waste the opportunity, poking fun at himself and his administration (a little) and at his foes in the overheated political chamber of an American election year (a lot).

Rebecca Tyrrel: Neo-Luddite Elton admitted that he didn’t know the web address of his own charity

Who knew that Elton John is a staunch enemy of modern technology? This news first emerged on The Larry King Show a few years back, when the Queen Mother of rock sheepishly admitted that he had no idea of the website address of his own charity, and only last year he revealed: "I don't have a phone, I don't have a computer, I don't have an iPad and I don't have an iPod".

Cultural Life: Sarah Lamb, ballerina

Dance: I saw the Nederlands Dans Theater 2 at Sadler's Wells, which was fantastic. The dancers are all aged between 17 and 23, and the final work in the triple bill was Paul Lightfoot's 'Passe-Partout'.

Geoffrey Macnab: This year the British found themselves out in the cold

After the triumph that The King's Speech enjoyed last year, the Baftas 2012 were a disappointment for the Brits. The hopes that Gary Oldman or Michael Fassbender might pip The Artist's Jean Dujardin to the Best Actor award were dashed. Many had thought that Kenneth Branagh would win a Supporting Actor award for his perfectly-measured portrayal of Laurence Olivier in My Night With Marilyn. In the event, Branagh lost out to Christopher Plummer for Beginners.
