Showered with teddy bears, flowers, and kisses from members of Hasty Pudding Theatricals, actress Claire Danes paraded through Harvard Square today as she was honored as the eccentric drama group’s “Woman of the Year.” Danes, who just won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Carrie Mathison on the hit Showtime series Homeland, waved and smiled to an animated crowd gathered on Massachusetts Avenue before entering Farkas Hall, where she accepted her Pudding Pot.

She joins the ranks of previous winners Scarlett Johansson, Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway, Katharine Hepburn, and Meryl Streep.
