Ben Platt Makes History as Youngest Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Winner!

Ben Platt is making history as the recipient of the latest Hasty Pudding Man of the Year award!

The 26-year-old actor became the youngest winner of the award when he was presented it during a ceremony on Friday (February 7) at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass.

The award is “bestowed annually on a performer who has made lasting and impressive contributions to the world of entertainment.” This was the second-ever Hasty Pudding Theatricals performance with a cast of both men and women after years of only men performing at the event.

Ben had to earn his award and among the tasks he was given were apologizing for stealing his bunkmate’s copy of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at summer camp, a sing-off of “Feeling Good,” a baptism of a group of Mormon worshippers, and giving an Oscar speech as his The Politician character Payton Hobart.

“It’s been a privilege to spend time here today. Thank you for welcoming me and I hope I do well by this award,” Ben said after receiving the award.

Camila Cabello & Ben Platt Perform in a Tribute to Education at Grammys 2020

Camila Cabello and Ben Platt appear on stage while performing in a tribute to music education at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 26) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The two young stars joined lots of other artists like John Legend, Cyndi Lauper, Gary Clark Jr., Joshua Bell, Misty Copeland, Lang Lang, Common, The War and Treaty, and Lee Curreri during the performance.

As part of a tribute to Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and his commitment to music education, the artists all performed “I Sing the Body Electric” from the movie Fame.

“It was pretty plain to me that, you know, rather than to put together a montage of great Grammy moments, which everybody has seen now a lot of times, … that this was a fresh way of doing something that really represented what I’ve tried to do with the Grammys,” Ehrlich told the Associated Press. “And it’s consistent with what the mission of the Academy is with regard to music education and music of the schools.”

FYI: Ben is wearing a Coach look. Common wore a Dolce&Gabbana look.
