Actress Renée Zellweger is this year’s Woman of the Year, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals folks announced today. Like her most recent predecessors – Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson, and Halle Berry – the Texas-born actress will be feted by the drama club’s drag queens in the streets of Cambridge in a no-doubt chilly celebration planned for this Thursday. After the parade, Zellweger will be roasted by the Hasty men and presented with her Pudding Pot at the newly renovated New College Theatre. The “Bridget Jones’s Diary” star, who we’ll claim as an honorary New Englander since she has a house and lots of friends in Connecticut, also has a new romantic comedy. She stars in “New in Town,” with Harry Connick Jr., this week. The Hasty’s Man of the Year celebration is planned for Feb. 13, but the recipient won’t be revealed until next week. Last year, Christopher Walken was honored. PAYSHA RHONE
