Why not Chris 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 2020 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Chris 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 ‘English Of The Year’ by some major English newspapers and even ‘Tunbridge Wells Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Tunbridge Wells (Oliver Chris' 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:

“Oliver Chris Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 30 Sep 2020
“Congrats! Oliver has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 30 Sep 2020
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Oliver Chris?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 30 Sep 2020

Could 2020 officially be the Year of Oliver Chris?

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

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2020?
