Jay Leno, Tonight Show

If you're Harvard alum Conan O'Brien, this little tidbit of info might just sting a little.

Jay Leno will be honored as Hasty Pudding's Man of the Year over at the Ivy League institution on Feb. 4.


The award, according to the legendary theatrical group, is given annually to "performers who have made a lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment."

Of course, don't let such a lofty description fool you into thinking there's anything high-brow about the cross-dressing ceremonial roast, as last year's male honoree, Justin Timberlake, can attest to.

The selection of Leno follows the recent announcement that Julianne Moore has been chosen by the group as 2011's Woman of the Year.
