2. Hasty Pudding Award

On January 29th of 2015, Poehler received the Hasty Pudding Club’s Woman of the Year Award. In a humorous ceremony at the organization’s official clubhouse, Poehler became an honorary member of the historic club (which dates to 1770). The Hasty Pudding Club, a Harvard College Institution, is particularly relevant to Amy as she is a native of the Boston area herself. In the afternoon of her big day, she was the focus of a parade held in her honor and which passed down the city’s famous Massachusetts Avenue. Accompanied by Hasty Pudding Ladies (men in garish drag outfits), she waved to crowds lining the streets and then made her way to a celebrity roast held to celebrate her special recognition. The roast included games, silly dances, and a private dinner.
