Julianne Moore heats up Harvard despite snow

Actress Julianne Moore, who sports a wicked Boston accent as Alec Baldwin’s love interest on NBC’s “30 Rock” and known for her acclaimed film work ranging from “The Hours” to the recent “The Kids Are Alright,” didn’t pahk the cah in Hahvahd Yahd on Thursday, January 27 … but she did ham it up on the steps of the New College Theatre.

Unfortunately, the annual Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ traditional Woman of the Year parade was canceled because of the snow. However, Moore did receive her Pudding Pot, an honor given by Harvard’s undergraduate drama troupe. And, yes, the fellas who gave the Oscar winner and Boston University grad her award were dressed in drag.

Meanwhile, the Harvard University press office announced that comedian Jay Leno has been tapped as their 2011 Man of the Year. The late-night TV host will be roasted by the troupe on Friday, Feb. 4 at the New College Theatre.

Anne Hathaway and Justin Timberlake were honored last year. Renee Zellweger and James Franco were honored in 2009. Christopher Walken and Charlize Theron were tapped as the Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ Man and Woman of the Year in 2008.
