Hasty Pudding honors ‘Saltburn’ actor Barry Keoghan as its Man of the Year

Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals showered Barry Keoghan with applause as they bestowed upon him the prestigious 2024 Man of the Year Award. The Irish actor, recognized for his compelling performances in “Dunkirk,” “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” “Eternals,” and “The Banshees of Inisherin,” was handed the iconic pudding pot before being treated to the 175th production titled “Heist Heist Baby!”

In a delightful roast, Keoghan, donned in a comically oversized suit and hat, found himself in a whimsical boxing match against the character “Mr. Irish Potato Famine.” The laughter continued as he participated in a quirky romantic comedy scene, concluding with a face-first encounter with a plate of spaghetti. Known for his role in “The Eternals,” Keoghan humorously admitted his initial preference for the Hulk but quickly switched to Iron Man, assuming Robert Downey Jr. might be in the audience.

The festivities took an amusing turn as Keoghan, a BAFTA award winner, accepted a colossal “BAFTUB” award, literally climbing into the bathtub-sized accolade. To cap it off, he sportingly wore a bra adorned with Morton Salt cartons and cardboard flames.

Post-roast, Keoghan expressed his gratitude, joking about feeling intellectually elevated in Harvard Square. He couldn’t resist a playful remark about “Saltburn,” particularly the scene featuring a nude dance.

In parallel news, Annette Bening, a distinguished two-time Golden Globe winner with five Oscar nominations, earned the title of the 2024 Woman of the Year from Hasty Pudding Theatricals.

Established in 1844, Hasty Pudding Theatricals, holding the third-oldest theater group status globally, has been honoring the Man of the Year since 1967. Previous recipients, including Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, Harrison Ford, Samuel L. Jackson, and Ryan Reynolds, showcase the esteemed nature of the award. Bob Odenkirk, famed for reprising Saul Goodman in “Better Call Saul,” was the recipient in the previous year.

Bening, renowned for her stellar performances in “The Grifters” and “American Beauty,” secured her fifth Oscar nomination for portraying long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad in “Nyad.” These accolades celebrate individuals who have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment.
