Hasty Pudding Honors Cotillard

Cambridge, Mass. — Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals has honored its woman of the year — Academy Award-winning actress Marion Cotillard.

The nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe gave Cotillard a parade in Cambridge yesterday, followed by a roast where she received a traditional pudding pot.

The 37-year-old French actress won the 2007 best actress Oscar for her role in La Vie En Rose. She has appeared more recently in Inception, Contagion and The Dark Knight Rises.

Claire Danes was the woman of the year last year.

The man of the year will be announced at a later date and honored on Feb. 8.

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