Octavia Spencer is having the best year EVER!
The actress killed it in Hidden Figures, is nominated for an Academy Award, and is the new recipient of Harvard University‘s Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year Award, which has been given out to prominent women in entertainment since 1951.
So well deserved!
The Oscar winner arrived in Cambridge, Massachusetts Thursday to much fanfare, even being treated to her own parade accompanied by Harvard students dressed in drag.
Later, they roasted Octavia onstage by making fun of her various movie roles, and the 46-year-old even participated in singing James Brown‘s I Feel Good with a student! Finally, Miz Spencer enjoyed some schadenfreude by hitting a student dressed as KellyAnne Conway in the face with a “poop” pie! Ha!
Ryan Reynolds is set to receive the Man of the Year Award next week!
Congrats to Octavia!
