Time Magazine Hypes Daniel Day-Lewis

It was bad enough when People magazine recently declared Beyonce The World’s Most Beautiful Woman. But People is a gossip rag and I don’t expect accuracy or enlightened consciousness from it. But when People’s sister publication Time uses stoopid coverlines it is annoying. The new issue of the “news”magazine declares Daniel Day-Lewis The World’s Greatest Actor. Really? Do you think the editors seriously considered non-English-speaking actors in their discussion? Of course not. What’s more, an actor can’t begin to be considered the world’s greatest unless he or she works in more than one medium. Day-Lewis only does (occasional) movies, so he wouldn’t even be in my top ten candidates for the honor. Time magazine is turning into hype-filled rubbish.
