The Hasty Pudding Theatricals (HPT) has named actors Bryce Dallas Howard and Milo Ventimiglia its 2019 Woman and Man of the Year, the awards presented annually “to performers who have made lasting and impressive contributions to the world of entertainment.” 

Howard is best known for her role as Claire Dearing in the Jurassic World series, as well as in films such as The Help and The Village. She is also recognized by HPT for her role in expanding opportunities for women in film as a producer and director. This year marks the first time that the Pudding cast includes women; the organization began admitting women performers last fall for the first time since its founding in 1844. Howard will receive her Pudding Pot tomorrow afternoon after the traditional parade through Harvard Square and celebratory roast, which will be followed by a preview of the Hasty Pudding’s 171st production France France Revolution.  

Ventimiglia currently stars as Jack Pearson in the drama series This Is Us, and has previously acted in Gilmore GirlsHeroes, and other TV series and films. He will receive his Pudding Pot on February 8 following a celebratory roast, and will attend the opening night of the new show

Last year’s awardees were Mila Kunis and Paul Rudd; past recipients have included Steven Spielberg, Ar.D. ’16,  Mikhail Baryshnikov, Ella Fitzgerald, and Meryl Streep.
