Accompanied by Harvard men in drag, Renee Zellweger has been honored as the Hasty Pudding Theatricals woman of the year. Hasty Pudding is the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe. By tradition, many of its male members wear women’s clothes for the parade.

The actress rode in the back of a silver convertible Bentley during a parade through Harvard Square on Thursday. She waved to spectators while capturing the event on her cell phone camera.

The Hasty Pudding Theatricals Man of the Year is James Franco. James is set to receive his award on February 13th.

The Man and Woman of the Year awards are presented annually to performers who have made a “lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment.” The Woman of the Year award has been granted to many notable entertainers, including Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn, Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster, Elizabeth Taylor, and, most recently, Charlize Theron. The Man of the Year’s past recipients include Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, Robert De Niro, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, Bruce Willis, and, last year, Christopher Walken.

Congratulations to Renee and James!!

The Golden Globes are scheduled for tonight at 8PM.  A guaranteed star studded event. 

The presenters alone are reason enough to watch the show.  What a list:  Zac Efron,Jake Gyllenhaal, Salma Hayek, Pierce Brosnan, Sandra Bullock, Demi Moore, Renee Zellweger, Dustin Hoffman, Drew Barrymore, Sacha Baron Cohen, Gerard Butler, Johnny Depp, David Duchovny, Megan Fox, Eva Longoria, Eva Mendes, Jane Krakowski, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Sting, Mark Wahlberg, Aaron Eckhart, the Jonas Brothers, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Chris Rock, Hayden Panettiere, Amy Poehler, Sean Combs… to name a few.

This year they have re-designed the award – the trophy consists of an angel standing on top of a Golden Globe with a black crystal vase.  They have also included the special Cecil B. DeMille Award, which will be given to Steven Spielberg, for his “outstanding contribution to the entertainment field.”

Kate Winslet, Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench, Kirstin Scott Thomas and Hugh Laurie are all in the running for top prizes at the show which recognizes the best in film and television. 

Kate Winslet, Kirstin Scott Thomas, Rebecca Hall, Sally Hawkins and Emma Thompson are all nominated in the two best actress categories for their performances this year.

On a sad note, John Travolta, who is mourning the death of his 16-year-old son Jett, has canceled his appearance at the Golden Globe Awards.

John, whose latest movie, Bolt, is nominated for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for his duet with costar Miley Cyrus (“I Thought I Lost You”) — was scheduled to present.
