Who doesn't love pudding? Dame Helen Mirren has won a slew of super-sweet awards since her fabulous film career took flight nearly fifty years ago, but this might be her tastiest one yet. The 68-year-old actress has just been named Woman of the Year by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals. She stated "How very saucy of the Hasty Pudding organization to offer me their award. As someone who adores Pudding in all its manifestations, I am so looking forward to the famous Hasty Pudding.” Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the nation's oldest running theater troupe, specializing in burlesque shows that often feature Harvard hunks in drag. Hasty Pudding Award winners, including Claire Danes and Anne Hathaway, are traditionally subjected to a roast and a parade in their honor.
