CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WHDH) -
Friday night television and film actor Neil Patrick Harris was given the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year award at Harvard University.
He started as a child actor when he played Doogie Howser, he made cameos in several movies and now he’s popular for his portrayal of Barney on How I Met Your Mother.
"I don't know what to say this is super amazing, fantastic. I never went to college and I thought you were super pompous and pretentious, but you’re actually lovely and caring and I've had a really fun time. So thank you very, very much,” Harris said.
The Hasty Pudding Man of the Year award is presented annually to performers who have made a lasting contribution to the world of entertainment.
Past winners include Jay Leno, George Clooney and Justin Timberlake.
