David Letterman and Dustin Hoffman were among those receiving Kennedy Center Honors Saturday in Washington, DC.
In toasting the late-night talk show host, Stephen Colbert said, "I knew Johnny [Carson], and I loved Johnny. Johnny was beyond reproach. Dave was stupid. Dave was ours. Dave was like us. We wanted to throw things off of buildings. ... We would love to stick our heads out the window of 30 Rock and yell at passers-by, 'I'm not wearing any pants!"'
Meryl Streep and Glenn Close both toasted Dustin Hoffman. Other artists honored Saturday included Led Zeppelin and Buddy Guy.
