Why not Pearce 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 56-year-old actor, as a 2024 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Pearce 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 ‘Australian Of The Year’ by some major Australian newspapers and even ‘Ely Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Ely (Guy Pearce'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:

“#PearcePOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”

“Congrats! Guy has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 21 Apr 2024
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Guy Pearce?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 21 Apr 2024

Could 2024 officially be the Year of Guy Pearce?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2024 Person of the Year.
