Miguel Ángel Silvestre among finalists for TIME’s 2024 Person of the Year?

Why not Silvestre 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 41-year-old actor, as a 2024 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Silvestre 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 ‘Spaniard Of The Year’ by some major Spanish newspapers and even ‘Castellón de la Plana Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Castellón de la Plana (Miguel Ángel Silvestre'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:

“Miguel Ángel Silvestre Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 27 Feb 2024
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveMiguel Ángel”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 27 Feb 2024
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Miguel Ángel Silvestre?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 27 Feb 2024

Could 2024 officially be the Year of Miguel Ángel Silvestre?

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

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2024?
