It’s a big year for Amy Poehler with her stints as both recurring Golden Globes host and Parks and Recreation star coming to an end, and now she has been anointed the Woman of the Year by Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals.

“We are extremely excited to announce Amy Poehler as our 2015 Woman of the Year. She is an accomplished performer, incredible comedian, and an inspiration to everyone in the Hasty Pudding,” Hasty Pudding president Jason Hellerstein in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming Ms. Poehler and celebrating and honoring her achievements in a truly unique and memorable way.” Helen Mirren twerked last year, so the ball’s in your court, Poehler.

Poehler will be honored with a parade and roast Jan. 29. Poehler spoke at Harvard’s Class Day in 2011.

Hasty Pudding’s Man of the Year will be announced at a later date.
