oprah harvard honorary degree commencement speech

When Oprah Winfrey agreed to give the commencement speech to Harvard University's Class of 2013, she probably didn't expect to be a part of it!

But that's just what happened as the renowned Ivy League institution of higher learning bestowed upon Oprah an honorary degree!

Gurl was moved to tears as she accepted the priceless (and yet also crazy expensive) honor!

Later today we'll hear just what it means to her as she delivers her epic speech! We have no idea what Oprah will say, but here's a bit of what she told last year's grads at Spelman College. She said:

Ben Affleck Is Getting A Degree From Brown University!

ben affleck honorary degree brown university

Does this mean someone might be sharing a dorm room with Ben Affleck?!

We'd be soooo jelly, but unfortunately, not quuuite!

Ben won’t be headed to college at Brown University, but he will be getting a degree…

…an honorary degree!

The actor and director has been selected to receive an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts (DFA) from the prestigious school.

We can't wait to see him donning the classic robe and cap as he accepts the degree next month for his achievements in cinema.

We have a feeling he’ll actually make that dorky cap look DAYUM good!

He might not have gotten an Oscar for directing, but he’s getting his degree!

We think that’s just as good!

Manolo Blahnik To Receive Honorary Degree From Bath Spa University

manolo-blahnik-received-honorary-degree.jpg

With a degree, or without, Manolo Blahnik will always shut it down in the shoe game!

The footwear designer will receive an honorary degree from the Vice-Chancellor of Bath Spa University on July 21 in recognition of his incredible contribution to the fashion industry.

Blahnik says of his degree:

"It is a great honor for me to be associated with such a wonderful institution which is Bath Spa University. I really adore Bath and everything that is there."

Manolo reportedly fell head-over-heels with the university when he visited the school with Vogue's creative director Grace Coddington in 1983.

And now, decades later, the luxury shoe maker has fallen even deeper in love with Bath Spa now that he's been given a special tribute.

Mr. Blahnik is surely going down in history as one of the best fashion pioneers!

Stephen Colbert To Receive Honorary Degree

Filed under: Stephen Colbert

stephen colbert to receive honorary degree

Well deserved!

Stephen Colbert's alma mater, Northwestern University, will be giving the Colbert Report host an honorary degree during the school's commencement on June 17.

Other folks who have received such an honor from Northwestern include computer science expert Barbar Liskov, death penalty/international criminal law scholar William Schabas, and opera singer Jessye Norman.

Those OTHER recipients may have some pret-ty impressive sounding jobs….but did any of them write, produce, AND star in Strangers with Candy? Didn't think so!

Congratulations, Stephen! We're happy for you!

Do U think Stephen Colbert deserves an honorary degree?
