Why not Dunham 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 36-year-old actress, as a 2022 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Dunham 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 ‘New York Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in New York (Lena Dunham'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:

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

“Congrats! Lena has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 27 Sep 2022
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Lena Dunham?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 27 Sep 2022

Could 2022 officially be the Year of Lena Dunham?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2022 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2022?
