Why not Seinfeld 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 69-year-old comedian, as a 2023 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Seinfeld 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 ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘New York Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in New York (Jerry Seinfeld's hometown).

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

“Jerry Seinfeld Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”

“Congrats! Jerry has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 8 Dec 2023
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Jerry Seinfeld?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 8 Dec 2023

Could 2023 officially be the Year of Jerry Seinfeld?

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