“Scandal” actress Kerry Washington took home a shiny little pudding pot Thursday after being feted with a raucous parade through Harvard Square and a roast by Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals.

The nation’s oldest collegiate theatrical organization says it named Washington as Woman of the Year because she’s the first black woman to headline a network TV drama since 1974.

In a statement, the troupe called her a “talented and socially engaged film, TV and stage actress who keeps breaking barriers in Hollywood.”

Washington told WCVB-TV before the festivities kicked off that she was “crazy honored” to join the esteemed list of women that have been honored by the group.
