CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Oscar-nominated actress Anne Hathaway can add another honor to her list: the Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year award, presented annually by Harvard University’s budding thespians.

Miss Hathaway will be feted Jan. 28 at a humorous “roast” and parade held by Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe. Hasty Pudding men traditionally dress up in women’s clothes for the event.

Miss Hathaway made her name as a teen in “The Princess Diaries” and has since showed her range in comedies such as “Get Smart” and dramas such as “Brokeback Mountain.” She was nominated for an Academy Award in 2009 for “Rachel Getting Married.”

Hasty Pudding honors performers who have made a “lasting and impressive contribution” to entertainment. Recent women of the year have included Renee Zellweger and Charlize Theron.
