As the year draws to an end a lot of magazine’s and award platforms are putting together their “Person of the Year” nominee list and one of the most prestigious ones is TIME Magazine’s “Person of the Year” award.

The magazine has released a couple of names up for nomination and some of the people on the list have caused quite a reaction on Twitter.

When TIME tweeted this:

Time… a lot of people could not believe they were being asked to choose between Caitlyn Jenner and Kim Kardashian for the “POTY”.

TIME however later tweeted this:

Time 1

…and also shared a link revealing the other nominees.

They wrote on their website:
