Octavia Spencer named Hasty Pudding’s 2017 Woman of the Year

theaterCongratulations to Octavia Spencer  who was named the Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year 2017. She not only starred in one of my favorite movies The Help, but her pie scene in that movie is perhaps among my favorites ever. That movie earned her a well deserved 2012 Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Golden Globe Award and SAG Award just to name a few. Past recipients of the Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year include: Meryl Streep, Debbie Reynolds, Katharine Hepburn, Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster, Dame Helen Mirren and most recently Kerry Washington.

Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the oldest theater organization in the country. Every year, the group honors a man and a woman who’ve made significant contributions to the entertainment world then, they roast the winners and host a parade in Harvard Square. Spencer will come to Harvard on January 26, 2017 to pick up her well deserved award.
