Diane Keaton, who won an Oscar in 1977 for "Annie Hall," has collected another award - the brass pudding pot awarded annually to the Hasty Pudding Theatricals' Woman of the Year.
The actress, who has been featured in all three "Godfather" movies as well as a string of Woody Allen films, rode in a parade Tuesday through Harvard Square in subfreezing weather in Cambridge, Mass. With her in the open limousine were actors from the Harvard theatrical society - the oldest undergraduate organization in the country - dressed in drag."This is insane!" Keaton, 45, said as she took the theater company's stage to accept her award.
With a big lipstick smudge on her cheek and dressed in a baggy black pants suit reminiscent of the outfits her character wore in "Annie Hall," Keaton received the brass pot from the president and vice president of the organization.
Each year, Hasty Pudding Theatricals recognizes two performers who have made "a lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment." Clint Eastwood of "Dirty Harry" fame, the former mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif., and the group's Man of Year, will be honored in a Feb. 19 ceremony.
Previous recipients include Katharine Hepburn, Steven Spielberg, Steve Martin, Kathleen Turner, Sean Connery and the late Lucille Ball. Glenn Close and Kevin Costner were last year's honorees.
