Jason Bateman named Hasty Pudding Man of the Year

AMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) – Jason Bateman was named 2022 Man of the Year by Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals on Thursday, the first award winner since 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Bateman, actor, producer and director of the Netflix series “Ozark,” who also played a starring role in “Arrested Development,” will receive his pudding at a roast on February 3, the theater company said in a statement.

“We are delighted to present Jason Bateman with Hasty Pudding’s 55th Annual Man of the Year Award. It’s been a hot minute since we delivered one of these, so we thought we’d give it to the boy all our moms have a crush on after seeing ‘Ozark,’ “said the organization’s president, Nick Amador.

The last Man of the Year was Ben Platt in 2020. Previous recipients include Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson.

Bateman, 52, won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Directing in a Drama in 2020 for “Ozark,” two SAG Awards for acting in “Ozark,” and a Golden Globe for Best Actor in 2005 for his portrayal of Michael Bluth in “Arrested Development”. ”

Bateman, whose acting career dates back to the early 1980s, has appeared on various television shows and starred in several films, including the films “Horrible Bosses,” “Game Night,” and “Identity Thief.”

Bateman at age 18 became the youngest director in the Directors Guild of America for directing three episodes of “Valerie,” according to Hasty Pudding Theatricals, which dates back to 1844 and calls itself the third oldest theater group in the world. .

The Man of the Year Award has been given since 1967. The Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year Award was established in 1951. The 2022 Woman of the Year has yet to be announced. The 2021 winner was Oscar winner Viola Davis.

The awards are given to individuals who have made lasting and impressive contributions to the world of entertainment.
