Honored at Harvard University as Hasty Pudding's 2012 Woman of the Year, the 'Homeland' actress receives kisses from two men in drag and catches a teddy bear that a fan threw to her.

Claire Danes has been honored as Hasty Pudding Theatricals' 2012 Woman of the Year at Harvard University. On Thursday, January 26, the Carrie Mathison of "Homeland" was treated to a colorful parade through the streets of Cambridge. Sitting in the backseat of a Bentley convertible, she's seen having a blast.

Photos from the parade capture the 32-year-old actress, who is dressed in a monochrome dress, black cardigan and a beige trench coat, getting kisses from two members of the Hastys, who are dressed in colorful drag. At one point, she reached for a teddy bear that a fan threw to her and gave it a kiss after catching it. Her husband, Hugh Dancy, was in the front seat.

Beside being treated to the parade, the three-time Golden Globe winner was also presented with her Pudding Pot and got a traditional roast for winning the top honor. During her roast, the Hastys reportedly took a jab at her decision to drop out of Yale, Harvard's rival, after just two years. Host James Fitzpatrick joked, "That's a normal amount of time to spend at a community college."

A mission statement explained that Danes was picked as the winner of the award because she "has made an indelible mark on the world of entertainment, in both drama and comedy." The honor came a little more than a week after the "Temple Grandin" star won her third Golden Globe for Best Actress.

While Danes won the Woman of the Year award, Jason Segel was named Hasty Pudding's 2012 Man of the Year. The "How I Met Your Mother" star will be presented with his Pudding Pot next Friday, February 3.
