For his work and contribution in the pop culture, the ex-boybander was given the gold pot, hailed in a roast and cheered in a parade.
The Hasty Pudding "Man of the Year" ceremony honoring Justin Timberlake has taken place at Harvard University's New College Theater on Friday, February 5. The singer, wearing all-gray suit with matching fedora, received the pudding pot from America's oldest undergraduate drama troupe.
Beside doing a little speech, Timberlake was also given the annual parade and the celebratory roast. He was selected to receive the title of 2010 "Man of the Year' because he is "one of pop culture's most influential entertainers". Previous years' honorees were James Franco (2009), Christopher Walken (2008) and Ben Stiller (2007).
Receiving the 2010 "Woman of the Year" title last month was Anne Hathaway. During the 30-minute roast she parodied her own movies "The Princess Diaries" and "Brokeback Mountain" accompanied by some drag queens impersonating Julie Andrews, Liza Minnelli and Meryl Streep.
