Why not Mulcahy 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 69-year-old director, as a 2022 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Mulcahy 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 ‘Australian Of The Year’ by some major Australian newspapers and even ‘Melbourne Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Melbourne (Russell Mulcahy'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:

“Russell Mulcahy Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 18 Aug 2022
“Congrats! Russell has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 18 Aug 2022
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Russell Mulcahy?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 18 Aug 2022

Could 2022 officially be the Year of Russell Mulcahy?

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?
