“This is a special moment for Elle as we mark 20 wonderful years of Women in Hollywood,” says Elle editor-in-chief Robbie Myers in a statement. “The longevity of this annual celebratory event is a testament to the remarkable women we honor who have been setting an example in the entertainment industry with their brilliant work. We’re proud to continue championing these illustrious women in the years to come.”
Exciting news! The Hasty Pudding Theatricals named Marion Cotillard Woman of the Year.
The Woman of the Year festivities will begin at 2:45 p.m. on January 31st, when Cotillard will lead a parade through the streets of Cambridge. Following the parade, the president of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, Renée Rober ‘13, and the vice president of the cast, Ben Moss ‘13, will host a celebratory roast for the actress.
At 4 p.m., Cotillard will be presented with her Pudding Pot at Farkas Hall, the Hasty Pudding’s historic home in the heart of Harvard Square since 1889. A press conference will follow the presentation. Afterward, Hasty Pudding cast members will perform several musical numbers from the group’s 165th production “There’s Something About Maui.”

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. Established in 1951, the Woman of the Year award has been given to many notable and talented entertainers, including Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn, Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster, Elizabeth Taylor, Anne Hathaway, and, most recently, Claire Danes.
The Hasty Pudding Theatricals, formed in 1795 and known informally simply as The Pudding, is a theatrical student society at Harvard University, known for its burlesque crossdressing musicals and for its status as the oldest collegiate theatrical organization in the United States. They present original student-written and student-composed musicals with near-professional production values.
On Friday 18 January, Marion will be taking part in ‘Le Débarquement’, which will air live on Canal+ at 8:50pm.
A bit about ‘Le Débarquement’:
The idea came about when Jean Dujardin, Gilles Lellouche and Guillaume Canet wanted to do something in the style of Saturday Night Live and Funny or Die in France.
It is above all an adventure of friends, the desire to play, laugh together, and invite everyone to participate.
The Landing is a series of skits, with a freedom of tone.
A bit like some American shows, it was also an opportunity to “mix” actors and actresses “recognized” with lesser known actors but the talented blast
From the outset, the deal was clear to all: leave the ego at home, we accept self-mockery and is not calculated. It goes back into the ridiculous or absurd if necessary. It explodes.
In an interview with Dujardin, Lellouche and Canet, Marion’s name was mentioned as one of the guests.
Can you give us some guests that will accompany you?
Laurent Lafitte, Nicolas Bedos, Géraldine Nakache, Alexandra Lamy, Melanie Doutey, Marion Cotillard, Alex Lutz and others but we will not tell you everything now …
At this stage it is an one-off event, but they are hoping if it is a ratings success, it may come back for future installments.
