Why not Desagnat 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 42-year-old actor, as a 2018 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Desagnat 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 ‘French Of The Year’ by some major French newspapers and even ‘Paris Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Paris (Vincent Desagnat'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:

“#DesagnatPOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”

“Congrats! Vincent has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 13 Aug 2018
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Vincent Desagnat?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 13 Aug 2018

Could 2018 officially be the Year of Vincent Desagnat?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2018 Person of the Year.
