CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Oscar-nominated actress Anne Hathaway can add another honor to her list: a Hasty Pudding award.
She will receive the award at a roast Jan. 28 by Hasty Pudding Theatricals at Harvard University. It's the nation's oldest undergraduate drama troupe.
The roast features the Harvard men in drag and takes place after a parade down Massachusetts Avenue near the university in Cambridge, Mass.
Hathaway made her name as a teen in "The Princess Diaries" and has shown her acting range in comedies such as "Get Smart" and dramas such as "Brokeback Mountain."
She was nominated for an Academy Award for best actress in 2009 for her role in "Rachel Getting Married."
Recent honorees have included Renee Zellweger, Charlize Theron and Scarlett Johansson.
NBC FILLS PRIME-TIME SLOTS LEFT BY LENO
LOS ANGELES — New and veteran NBC dramas and a comedy produced by Jerry Seinfeld will take over the bulk of the prime-time slots soon to be vacated by Jay Leno.
NBC announced yesterday that the freshman drama "Parenthood" and the relocated "Law & Order" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" will fill three slots. Another will go to the comedy panel series "The Marriage Ref" from Seinfeld. "Dateline NBC" will fill another 10 p.m. slot.
The new lineup will debut after NBC's coverage of the Winter Olympics from Feb. 12 to 28.
Yet to be resolved is NBC's effort to make way for Leno's return to late-night TV by bumping Conan O'Brien and "Tonight" to midnight, a plan O'Brien has rejected.
