Why not Hannah 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 59-year-old actor, as a 2021 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.
“What makes Hannah 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 ‘Scot Of The Year’ by some major Scottish newspapers and even ‘East Kilbride Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in East Kilbride (John Hannah'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:
“John Hannah Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 27 Nov 2021
“Congrats! John has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 27 Nov 2021
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not John Hannah?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 27 Nov 2021
Could 2021 officially be the Year of John Hannah?
Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2021 Person of the Year.
Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2021?
