NEW YORK — Harvard U.’s zany Hasty Pudding Theatricals will bestow its yearly man and woman of the year awards upon thesps Tim Robbins and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
On Feb. 10, Zeta-Jones will lead a parade through Cambridge, Mass., followed by a ceremony in which the actress will be roasted by Hasty Pudding members and receive a Pudding Pot. Robbins will be feted on the 17th in a similar ceremony.
Past recipients of the Hasty Pudding award, established in 1950, include Katharine Hepburn, Julia Roberts, Robert De Niro and Tom Cruise.
The awards are characterized by silliness. Presenters often wear drag and mercilessly skewer the celebrity honorees.
