Time announces shortlist for 2023 Person of the Year

Time has announced the shortlist for who will become the 2023 Person of the Year.

The publication started the tradition in 1927 of naming the person or group with the most influence, for better or worse, over 12 months.

Previous selections included American presidents Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump; international leaders such as Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin and Volodymyr Zelensky; tech titans such as Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg and finally groups like “The Silence Breakers,” “The Ebola Fighters,” “The Protestor” and “The Good Samaritans,” CBS News reported.
The Person of the Year for 2023 will be announced on Wednesday morning.

The shortlist for 2023 includes:

Hollywood strikers
Writers and actors walked the picket lines this year, causing television and movie production to come to a halt, Time said. Both the Writers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild both came to agreements and are getting back to work.

Xi Jinping
Chinese President Xi Jinping has already been part of Time’s 100 list, which honors the most influential people worldwide, 10 times. Xi was also a runner-up for Person of the Year in 2017.

Taylor Swift
Singer/songwriter Taylor Swift is once again on the list for Person of the Year after her “Eras Tour” and the release of her film documenting her concerts. She has already been part of a Person of the Year cover in 2017 as part of the “Silence Breakers” who spoke out about sexual misconduct, Time said.
