Claire Danes has just been named 2012 Woman of the Year by the Hasty Pudding Theatricals of Harvard University, just a week after clinching her third Golden Globe win for her role in the TV series Homeland, which also made New York Magazine's 2011 Culture Awards. Along with leading a parade through Cambridge this coming Thursday, Danes will be feted at a celebrity roast held in her honor. The Pudding Pot has previously been bestowed on television greats such as Katharine Hepburn, Julia Roberts, and Meryl Streep, as well as other fast-risers like Anne Hathaway.
