Why not Barbeau 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 76-year-old actress, as a 2021 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Barbeau 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 ‘Sacramento Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Sacramento (Adrienne Barbeau'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:

“Adrienne Barbeau Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 4 Aug 2021
“Congrats! Adrienne has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 4 Aug 2021
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Adrienne Barbeau?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 4 Aug 2021

Could 2021 officially be the Year of Adrienne Barbeau?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2021 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2021?
