Why not Ducret 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 40-year-old actor, as a 2019 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

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

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

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

“Arnaud Ducret Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 11 Dec 2018
“Congrats! Arnaud has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 11 Dec 2018
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Arnaud Ducret?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 11 Dec 2018

Could 2019 officially be the Year of Arnaud Ducret?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2019 Person of the Year.
