Why not Colman 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 49-year-old actress, as a 2023 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.
“What makes Colman 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 ‘English Of The Year’ by some major English newspapers and even ‘Norfolk Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Norfolk (Olivia Colman'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:
“#ColmanPOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”

“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveOlivia”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 27 May 2023
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Olivia Colman?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 27 May 2023
Could 2023 officially be the Year of Olivia Colman?
Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2023 Person of the Year.
