The 'Parks and Recreation' star, who is chosen as the 2015 Woman of the Year by Hasty Pudding Theatricals, was honored with a parade and a celebratory roast on Thursday, January 29.
Amy Poehler was honored by Harvard's Hasty Pudding Theatrical with a parade and a celebratory roast on Thursday, January 29. During the parade, Amy were kissed by two male students who dressed as women with thick make-up and colorful wigs.

The "Parks and Recreation" star was paraded from Harvard Square to the theater hall with a marching band, costumed marchers and a duck boat in tow. Harvard students and Amy's fans lined the Massachusetts Avenue bringing signs which read "Leslie Knope for president" and shouting, "We love you, Amy."



According to The Boston Globe, one of Hasty Pudding's members joked at the celebratory roast, "Our Woman of the Year believes if she collects enough Emmy nominations, she'll actually win one."

Amy said, "When I was growing up in Burlington, Harvard University was a place we threw rocks at on our way to our real jobs. When I drove by and gave you the middle finger, I had no idea I'd be honored by you [one day]. I haven't seen this many white people since I took my top off at a mime convention."

When accepting her pudding pot, the 43-year-old actress joked, "I hope I treat this award with the respect any fake award deserves... There are times in your career when you know you've made it. And seeing these two nervous baby faces [roast me] is truly an honor."

At a press conference after the ceremony, Amy said she was "so happy to be able to roast right back. It's so fun to roast after just being roasted. everyone is so warm."



Amy's co-star on "Parks and Recreation", Chris Pratt, is chosen as Hasty Pudding's Man of the Year 2015 and will be honored on February 6.
