Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren has been named woman of the year by Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals.
The 68-year-old Mirren won the 2007 best actress Oscar for her role as Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen and has been nominated on three other occasions.
Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe. Its awards are presented annually to performers who have made a lasting and impressive contribution to entertainment. The man of the year will be named at a later date.
Mirren will be honored with a parade and roast and given her ceremonial pudding pot at Harvard on Jan. 30.

The pop-rock trio fun. is launching a campaign to raise money for at-risk LGBT youth in Detroit.
The band said Friday it plans to raise $250,000 to build a community health center for the Ruth Ellis Center, which provides housing, meals, clothing and medical services for LGBT youth in need.
Members of fun. are singer Nate Ruess, guitarist Jack Antonoff and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Dost, who is from Detroit. The group had a breakthrough in 2012, topping the charts with We Are Young and Some Nights. Last year, fun. won Grammys for song of the year and best new artist.
