The Hasty Pudding Man of the Year is given annually to performers who “have made a lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment.” Last year’s winner was Justin Timberlake.

This year’s Woman of the Year is Julianne Moore.

WBZ-TV’s Jonathan Elias reports from Friday night’s award ceremony.

  • Italo

    Gawd, he’s annoying and overrated!

  • Cynic

    As I said when this first made the News a couple of weeks ago…”Jay left Harvard with a Pudding Pot,Conan left with a Degree.

  • Cliff Wood

    The pudding pot meant a lot more than the degree.

  • Reno

    It’s awesome to be able to win such honors for stealing other people’s jokes!

  • Cynic

    Hasty Pudding started in 1844…..(Some Say 1795)…. It took only 167 years for it to reach the bottom of the Barrel.
