As if Neil Patrick Harris wasn’t legendary enough, The Hasty Pudding Theatricals declared him 2014’s Man of the Year. Their Woman of the Year, announced last week, is actress Helen Mirren.

The Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the oldest theatrical organization in the U.S., and they’ve been awarding notable performers with the Man of the Year title since 1963. Harris is joining the ranks of past honorees such as Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, and Justin Timberlake.

Festivities, including a roast and premiere of production Victorian Secrets, will take place on February 7, 2014 in Harvard Square. “I assume this is for that pudding wrestling competition I won last April, right?” Harris joked in a statement. “It was dark and seemed quite seedy at the time, I’m stoked that it’s connected with Harvard. Fancy! Can’t wait!”
