The Hasty Pudding award is bestowed to men and women who have made “an impressive contribution to the world of entertainment” annually by the Hasty Pudding Theatricals society at Harvard University, Cambridge MA. The award was created in 1951 and its first male and female recipients were Bob Hope, a British born American comedian, singer and actor in 1967 and Gertrude Lawrence, an English actress, singer and dancer in 1951 respectively.
