Color us super jealous! No doubt her speech is going to be HIGHlarious!

The prestigious Harvard University has had many great artists and famous faces speak at their previous commencement ceremonies and adding her name to the ranks is SNL alum Amy Poehler, who has been selected by the class of 2011 to speak at their graduation.

Amy grew up in the Boston area and will undoubtedly make sure her accent is in rare form for the event. Hopefully, she'll remember not to pahk her cah to fah from Havard Yahd. It's a bitch of a walk! LOLZ!

Congrats, Amy! Hopefully they'll put your bit on Youtube so we can hear your speech too!

Well deserved! We'll clap for this!

Harvard University announced this morning that Colombian singer, songwriter, and philanthropist Shakira has been named their 2011 Artist of the Year by the school's foundation. Gorgeous!

S. Allen Counter, director of the Harvard Foundation, released a statement, explaining their choice, saying:

“The students and faculty of the Harvard Foundation are honored to present multiplatinum artist Shakira with the 2011 Artist of the Year award. Her contributions to music and distinguished history of creativity have been applauded by people throughout the world, and she is greatly admired worldwide for her humanitarian efforts through her Barefoot Foundation.”

Honestly, she is such a beautiful person, inside and out. They really couldn't have picked anyone better to honor.

Shakira will be awarded the foundation’s most prestigious honor at the annual Cultural Rhythms award ceremony on Feb. 26.

Congrats, BB! Put it right next to all your Grammys!

Conan Jay Leno Honored As Man Of The Year At Harvard

Filed under: Jay Leno

Looks like he enjoyed himself. (Bet Conan O'Brien would have enjoyed it more. )

Over the weekend, Jay Leno accepted the honor of Man of the Year from Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals. As is customary, the ceremony poked fun at the late night host, though it doesn't seem like he got as roasted as Justin Timberlake did last year.

Check out the rest of the pictures from the ceremony in the gallery (below).

So, how likely is it that Conan will throw a jab Harvard's way about this in tonight's monologue, hmm?

Ouch! Harvard's Team Leno, Not Team Conan!

Fine way to treat an alum!

Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals has named Jay Leno as their Man of the Year, alongside Julianne Moore, who was named Woman of the Year late last week.

You would think they would want to pick an alum and former editor of the Harvard Lampoon for the esteemed honor, but the pudding peeps think Jay's the better fit as he's “entertained millions of people over his long and accomplished career in comedy."

Whatever, your decision. Just don't be expecting anymore donations from Conan O'Brien!

Attention, College Grads! Justin Timberlake Is Jealous

justin timberlake wishes he went to college

Okay, so you may not be a college grad, Justin, but you did receive Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals Man of the Year award. That's gotta count for something, right?

During the Hasty Pudding press conference, the Social Network star had the following to say about his nonexistent college experience:

"Secretly, I always wanted to go to college, and I didn't get the chance to do that."

You can always go back, Justin!

Talk to James Franco…he'll give you the inside scoop.
