You can slap bet Jason Segel is celebrating this morning. No, The Muppets didn’t score a Best Picture Oscar nod. (It did, however, bag a Best Song nomination for “Man or Muppet”!) But while the Academy might not have the How I Met Your Mother actor on its radar, Harvard University certainly does.

The actor was named today the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year. Sounds delicious.

To celebrate, Hasty Pudding Theatricals society, the nation’s oldest undergrad drama troupe, will have a parade and roast in Segel’s honor. (Please book Kermit to skewer him! PLEASE!) Actress Claire Danes will also be honored for Woman of the Year, which was announced earlier this week.

Last year’s winner was Jay Leno. Upgrade, my yummy friends. Upgrade.
