Claire Danes just picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Showtime’s thrilling drama “Homeland,” and now she’ll have another trophy to add to her mantel.
The actress has been named the Hasty Pudding woman of the year, an honor bestowed upon a deserving celebrity by Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals, a more than 200-year-old theater group from the renowned Cambridge, Mass. university.
Also receiving a Pudding Pot is Jason Segel, the man responsible for the great Muppet revival of 2011 who also stars on CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother.” He’ll be roasted by the group on Feb. 3, while Danes will receive her trophy after a parade on Jan. 26.
The award is given out every year “to performers who have made lasting and impressive contributions to entertainment.” Past recipients include Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, Justin Timberlake and Jay Leno.
