The Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the oldest theatrical organization in the United States, honored Academy Award-winning actress Dame Helen Mirren as the recipient of its 2014 Woman of the Year Award yesterday. Check out a look back at the celebration below!
The Woman of the Year Award is the Hasty Pudding Theatricals oldest honor, bestowed annually on performers who have made lasting and impressive contributions to the world of entertainment. Established in 1951, the Woman of the Year Award has been given to many notable and talented entertainers, including Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn, Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster, Elizabeth Taylor, Anne Hathaway, Claire Danes, and most recently, Marion Cotillard.
The Woman of the Year festivities, presented by The Related Companies, were yesterday, January 30, 2014, when Mirren was featured in a parade through the streets of Cambridge. Following the parade, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals hosted a celebratory roast for the actress. At 4 p.m., Mirren was presented with her Pudding Pot at Farkas Hall, the Hasty Pudding's historic home in the heart of Harvard Square since 1888.
