CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (AP) - Academy Award-winning actress Marion Cotillard (koh-tee-YAR’) has taken home the pudding pot after being honored as woman of the year by Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals.

Cotillard smiled, waved and caught a teddy bear from the crowd during a parade through Cambridge’s Harvard Square on Thursday.

The procession was followed by a roast of the 37-year-old French actress at Hasty Pudding headquarters, during which Cotillard sang a song from “La Vie En Rose.” Cotillard won a best actress Oscar for her portrayal of famed French singer Edith Piaf in that 2007 film.

Cotillard has appeared more recently in `’Inception” and `’The Dark Knight Rises.”

Claire Danes was the woman of the year in 2012.

The awards are presented annually to performers who have made a lasting and impressive contribution to entertainment.
