The Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the oldest theatrical organization in the United States, announces JENNIFER GARNER as the recipient of its 2022 Woman of the Year Award. From her performances in Alias, 13 Going on 30, Love Simon, and YES DAY to her role as a philanthropist and entrepreneur, the Pudding is proud to present this honor to an iconic and talented actress who has had such an impactful presence in the world of entertainment.


The Woman of the Year Award is the Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ oldest honor, bestowed annually on performers who have made lasting and impressive contributions 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, Julia Roberts, Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington, and most recently Viola Davis, the 71st Woman of the Year.


The Woman of the Year festivities will begin at 3:00pm on February 5th, 2022, when Ms. Garner will lead a parade through the streets of Harvard Square. Following the parade, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals will host a celebratory roast for Ms. Garner at 8:00pm, after which she will be presented with her Pudding Pot at Farkas Hall, the Hasty Pudding’s historic home in Harvard Square since 1888. A press conference will follow the presentation at 8:30pm. This year, the Woman of the Year event and Opening Night will coincide and after the press conference, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals will perform HPT 173: Ship Happens!


“We are thrilled to honor Jennifer Garner, who will be the first Woman of the Year to be honored on Opening Night! 13 Going on 30 was my go-to movie growing up, so I can’t wait to meet her,” said co-producer Molly Chiang. “As a talented actress and philanthropist, Jennifer is a role model to all of us at Hasty Pudding Theatricals. It is so wonderful to celebrate her in this exceptional year with the organization’s return to the stage,” added Man and Woman of the Year Coordinator Jacqueline Zoeller.
