With a diverse range of comedic talents, Andy Samberg has emerged as a captivating and hilarious leading man on screens both big and small. As an Emmy® award winning writer, Samberg is achieving as much success behind the scenes as he is on screen.
Samberg will next be seen in Sean Anders’ That’s My Boy, co-starring Adam Sandler. The film will be released by Columbia Pictures and Happy Madison Productions on June 15th.
Samberg, along with his LONELY ISLAND partners Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, released their sophomore album Turtleneck and Chain on May 10. Turtleneck and Chain was nominated for a 2012 Grammy for “Best Comedy Album.”
Other film credits include: Friends With Benefits opposite Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis; I Love You, Man opposite Paul Rudd and Jason Segel; and Hot Rod, starring Jorma Taccone, Ian McShane, Sissy Spacek, Isla Fisher, and Bill Hader.
Samberg is currently in his seventh season as a cast member on Saturday Night Live.
Rep. Barney Frank ’61
Barney Frank represents the Fourth Congressional District of Massachusetts, and he is also the Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee. Last year, he helped pass the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act,” a new law that the Washington Post has called “the most sweeping overhaul of the nation’s financial regulatory system since the Great Depression.”
Frank began his career in the Massachusetts State House, where he served for eight years before winning a seat in the U.S. Congress in 1980.
Although he is widely-recognized for his work on national issues, Frank has also fought to help New Bedford fishermen, to bring commuter rail to the South coast, to provide affordable rental housing, and to support many local organizations and businesses.

Get stoked to hear these awesome seniors make us laugh, cry, and remember all of the best parts of our HA12VARD experience!
The AMES Award
This very prestigious honor will be granted to one man and one woman of the senior class during the Class Day ceremonies, on the day before Commencement.
On June 19, 1935, Richard Glover Ames and Henry Russell Ames, brothers and Harvard students, gave their lives to save their father, who was washed overboard during a storm off the coast of Newfoundland. Every year since, the Ames Award has been given in their memory to recognize one man and one woman who have shown energy in helping others and who exhibit the same heroic character and inspiring leadership of the Ames brothers.
While Harvard students are often commended for their many achievements, this award is unique in striving to identify individuals whose substantial contributions have not been acknowledged. In effect, the goal of this award is to honor two unsung heroes of the Class of 2012. We welcome nominations of seniors whom you consider worthy of such an honor, whether their service has impacted the community inside or outside of Harvard, on a large or small scale. We ask for your help in bringing their stories, and the lesser-known facets of our classmates’ personalities, to light. At the same time, please do not hesitate to nominate individuals who may already have received some recognition for holding leadership positions in organizations or activities.
We believe that many seniors are worthy of the Ames Award, and the Ames Award Committee’s task of choosing one woman and one man will undoubtedly be very difficult. We ask for your assistance in our selection process by nominating individuals in the form of a letter. These letters will be the sole basis of our decision, so please be as specific as possible and provide us with as much relevant information as you can about your nominee or nominees.
Traditionally, one of the most special aspects of the Ames Award is that it comes as a joyous surprise to the recipients and the entire senior class on Class Day. Thus, in keeping with the spirit of the award, we request that, if possible, you refrain from discussing your nominations with anyone, including peers, and especially the nominees themselves. If you have any questions about the award itself or the selection process please feel free to contact The Harvard Alumni Association.
Submissions were due April 13, 2012 and are no longer being accepted.
