Julianne Moore To Get Pudding Pot From Harvard

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) – Oscar-nominated actress Julianne Moore is being honored at Harvard University as the Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year.

The four-time Oscar nominee is to receive her pudding pot at a Jan. 27 roast by Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe.

Hasty Pudding Theatricals says Moore’s talents extend beyond the film screen to her roles in Broadway productions and to her success as author of two children’s book series.

In 2002, Moore became the ninth person in Academy Awards history to receive two acting Oscar nominations in a year for her performances in “Far From Heaven” and “The Hours.”

This year, she’s considered a potential Oscar contender for “The Kids Are All Right,” a comic drama about lesbian parents whose teenage children contact their sperm-donor father.
