CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Bryce Dallas Howard, who has made her mark as an actor, producer and director, was named Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals 2019 Woman of the Year on Tuesday.

“The Pudding is excited to honor an accomplished actress who has given such a wide range of critically acclaimed performances, and is committed to expanding the role of women in every aspect of storytelling,” the nation’s oldest collegiate theatrical organization said in a statement.

Howard will be honored with a parade through Cambridge on Thursday, to be followed by a roast where she will receive her pudding pot.

The roast will be followed by a preview of the organization’s latest production, “France France Revolution,” its first that features a cast that includes women.

“In addition to being fans of Bryce’s work in TV and film, we admire her efforts to forge new pathways for female artists and creatives in Hollywood,” Mariana Sanchez-Medina, the organization’s co-producer said in statement.

It has honored a Woman of the Year since 1951 and previous winners include Ella Fitzgerald, Meryl Streep and Halle Berry. Mila Kunis was last year’s honoree.
