Why not Baumbach 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 50-year-old director, as a 2020 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Baumbach 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 director 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 (Noah Baumbach's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

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

“Noah Baumbach Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 9 Jul 2020
“Congrats! Noah has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 9 Jul 2020
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Noah Baumbach?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 9 Jul 2020

Could 2020 officially be the Year of Noah Baumbach?

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