Exciting news!

On Wednesday, it was confirmed that Kerry Washington was named the recipient of the Hasty Pudding Club‘s 2016 Woman of the Year award. AH-Mazing!

As the official W.O.T.Y. by Harvard University‘s famous social club, the Scandal star will be subjected to a parade through Cambridge, MA’s Harvard Square with the group’s men in drag — as well as be roasted by the members of the organization. What fun!

And it seems the Emmy nominee is a tad nervous for the event, as she took to Twitter following the announcement and wrote:

HIGHlarious! We think Miz Washington will do just fine, tbh.

Despite the fact that the crew will be making fun of the 38-year-old, the students couldn’t be more excited to have the brunette beauty visit. The producer of the event, named Kennedy Edmonds, stated in an announcement:

“We are so excited to honor Kerry Washington as the Hasty Pudding Theatricals Woman of the Year and welcome her to Cambridge to celebrate her many achievements. Kerry is an amazing actress with many fans in the company, and the perfect choice for this honor… But we also feel a bit nervous as we set out to coordinate a perfect event for legendary PR whiz Olivia Pope!”

LOVES it! In fact, the Shondaland celeb will join a long list of other A-listers who’ve been roasted by the group — including Amy Poehler, Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, and more!

It’ll certainly be inneresting to see if this industry vet will be able to turn the tables on the Ivy league jokesters during her visit on January 28. Not to mention, we’ll probably learn about the Man of the Year nominee some time soon.

Stay tuned!
