London: Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren has been selected as Harvard`s Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year.

The 68-year-old veteran actress will accept the award from America`s oldest theatrical group on January 30, reported Digital Spy.

"As someone who adores Pudding in all its manifestations - Suet, Christmas, Treacle, Bread and Butter, Yorkshire, Plum, Figgy, etc, etc - I am so looking forward to the famous Hasty Pudding," Mirren said in a statement.

The Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year prize has previously been given to Marion Cotillard, Claire Danes and Julianne Moore.
Mirren will next be seen in `The Hundred-Foot Journey`.
