Why not Meaney 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 70-year-old actor, as a 2023 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Meaney 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 ‘Irish Of The Year’ by some major Irish newspapers and even ‘Dublin Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Dublin (Colm Meaney'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:

“Colm Meaney Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 2 Jun 2023
“Congrats! Colm has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 2 Jun 2023
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Colm Meaney?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 2 Jun 2023

Could 2023 officially be the Year of Colm Meaney?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2023 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2023?
