Why not Roberts 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 67-year-old actor, as a 2023 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Roberts 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 ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Biloxi Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Biloxi (Eric Roberts' 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:

“Eric Roberts Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 28 May 2023
“Congrats! Eric has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 28 May 2023
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Eric Roberts?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 28 May 2023

Could 2023 officially be the Year of Eric Roberts?

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?
