Why not MacDowell for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 59-year-old actress, as a 2017 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes MacDowell so important is the potential and influence she now has, rather than anything she has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the actress have already been named ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Gaffney Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Gaffney (Andie MacDowell's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the actress was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Andie MacDowell Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 25 Apr 2017
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveAndie”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 25 Apr 2017
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Andie MacDowell?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 25 Apr 2017

Could 2017 officially be the Year of Andie MacDowell?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2017 Person of the Year.
