Why not Brochet 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 57-year-old actress, as a 2023 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.
“What makes Brochet 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 ‘French Of The Year’ by some major French newspapers and even ‘Amiens Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Amiens (Anne Brochet'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:
“Anne Brochet Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 29 Nov 2023
“Congrats! Anne has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 29 Nov 2023
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Anne Brochet?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 29 Nov 2023
Could 2023 officially be the Year of Anne Brochet?
Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2023 Person of the Year.
