Why not Garner 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 48-year-old actress, as a 2020 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

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

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

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

“Jennifer Garner Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 28 Oct 2020
“Congrats! Jennifer has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 28 Oct 2020
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Jennifer Garner?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 28 Oct 2020

Could 2020 officially be the Year of Jennifer Garner?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2020 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2020?
