Julianne Moore given Hasty Pudding honor

Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatrical Group has named Julianne Moore their “Woman of the Year” for her contribution to the world of entertainment. The group is America’s oldest undergraduate drama group and has been naming a Woman of the Year since 1951. Learah Lockhart, Hasty Pudding’s press manager, says, “Julianne Moore has made a lot of bold choices in her career. She has acted in everything from movies to independent films to theatre to television. She has even authored two children’s books.” Past winners include Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock. The Man of the Year award, whose first recipient was Bob Hope in 1967, will be announced on February 4. Moore was recently nominated for a Golden Globe award for her work in The Kids are All Right, but lost to her co-star, Annette Bening.

    She’s a terrific actress. These winners are good sports though, I think those Harvard kids really run them through the mill.

    Agreed Amanda, she’s a super actress, and I suspect a wonderful person offscreen as well.

    YES! I think that Moore is great! Very good actress; involved in charities,etc. Also, whenever I’ve seen her interviewed, she’s right on top of it, very charming and smart! I give her the “Thumb’s Up”! Hope to see her in many more great movies.

    @Kathleen I agree with you, she’s a great choice for this year’s Hasty Pudding woman of the year!

    Maureen Gallimore What are you talking about? The topic is Julianne Moore, not Angelina Jolie and Unicef and her movie ‘Changeling’.

    Anyway, this is well deserved for Moore.
