Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals is honoring its woman of the year — Academy Award-winning actress Marion Cotillard.
The nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe will be giving Cotillard a parade in Cambridge on Thursday afternoon, followed by a roast where she’ll receive a traditional pudding pot.
The 37-year-old French actress won the 2007 best actress Oscar for her role in ‘‘La Vie En Rose.’’ She has appeared more recently in ‘‘Inception,’’ ‘’Contagion’’ and ‘‘The Dark Knight Rises.’’
Claire Danes was the woman of the year last year.
The man of the year will be announced at a later date and honored on Feb. 8.
The awards are presented annually to performers who have made a lasting and impressive contribution to entertainment.
