Spencer and Reynolds to get Hasty Pudding Pots
Hasty Pudding Theatricals Announces Octavia Spencer and Ryan Reynolds as the Woman and Man of the Year 2017.
The Woman of the Year is the oldest honor for performers who have "made lasting and impressive contributions to the entertainment world." The award was established in 1951.
"We could not be more excited to offer Ms Spencer our Woman of the Year award. We are humbled by her talent and are so honored that our little Pudding Pot will be sitting alongside Ms. Spencer's Oscar and Golden Globe on her mantle," said Hasty Pudding Theatricals' Co-producer Adam Chiavacci. "Everyone here is really looking forward to meeting her – as long as she doesn’t prove as difficult as her character on 30 Rock!" added Pudding Co-producer Natalie Kim.
The Woman of the Year festivities kick off at 3:00p.m. on January 26, 2017 when actress Spencer will lead a parade through Cambridge, Massachusetts. A roast of the actress will follow at 4:00p.m. and her Pudding Pot at Farkas Hall.
The Man of the Year Ryan Reynolds will be celebrated on February 3, 2017. This award was established in 1963. Reynolds will be roasted and potted at Farkas Hall.
