CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Justin Timberlake soon will have a new piece of hardware for his trophy case — a pudding pot.

The Grammy- and Emmy-award winner was named Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Man of the Year on Tuesday.

Mr. Timberlake will receive the award at a roast set for Feb. 5.

Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe, said in a statement that the singer, songwriter, actor and producer was selected because he’s “one of pop culture’s most influential entertainers.”

His album “Justified” produced four No. 1 singles, making him the first artist in Nielsen Top 40 history with four No. 1 hits from one album. He also has appeared on television and in movies, including “Alpha Dog.”

Actress Anne Hathaway was named Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year earlier this month.
