According to The Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the awards are given to “performers who have made lasting and impressive contributions to the world of entertainment.” Previous Man of the Year honorees include Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, Robert de Niro, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, Bruce Willis, Justin Timberlake, Jason Segel, and Kiefer Sutherland.
Harris will be presented with a Pudding Pot at a ceremony to be held on February 7th at Farkas Hall in Harvard Square.
“I assume this is for that pudding wrestling competition I won last April…right?” said Neil Patrick Harris. “It was dark and seemed quite seedy at the time – I’m stoked that it’s connected with Harvard. Fancy! Can’t wait!”
“We are pleased to present Mr. Harris with our Man of the Year Award honoring his distinguished contributions to the arts and entertainment industry,” said Tony Oblen, ’14, President of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals. “With his enviable reputation as a host and showman, we look forward to hosting Mr. Harris for an entertaining and unforgettable evening to recognize his achievements.”
