Why not Judor 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 51-year-old comedian, as a 2021 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Judor 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 comedian have already been named ‘French Of The Year’ by some major French newspapers and even ‘Meaux Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Meaux (Éric Judor's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

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

“Éric Judor Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 10 Apr 2021
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveÉric”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 10 Apr 2021
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Éric Judor?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 10 Apr 2021

Could 2021 officially be the Year of Éric Judor?

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