The awards ceremony, hosted by Harvard University’s theatrical student society Hasty Pudding Theatricals, is highly regarded by the famous honorees who are traditionally roasted at the ceremony and take place in a subsequent parade through the Boston area. Last week, the troupe announced Helen Mirren as the recipient of its 2014 Woman of the Year award.
Our source tells us that NPH will be in attendance to accept his award this year at a brand new facility, and will also take part in the ceremony—hopefully in a hilarious skit! Last year, actors dressed as NPH “and his unicorn” entertained the crowd while honoree Jason Segel looked on.
With so many riotous Tony Awards performances under his belt, lord only knows what NPH has cooked up for this year’s Hasty Pudding Awards!
Allow us be the first to congratulate you, Neil!
