The Internet Is Petitioning Keanu Reeves To Become Time’s 2019 Person Of The Year

Can you believe that Keanu Reeves hasn’t been nominated as Time’s Person of the Year yet? The webispshere can’t either. That’s why thousands of Keanu fans are voting for the John WIck actor to receive one of the highest honors of all time. Read on to learn more about the Internet’s petition for Keanu Reeves to become Time’s 2019 Person of the Year.

Man Of The Year

The “Keanussance” is here! Keanu Reeves is back with a vengeance, churning out hit after hit movie since 2014’s John Wick. Not to mention his killer roles in the sequels, John Wick: Chapter 2, which was released in 2017, and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, which came out earlier this year. Plus, the Matrix actor has a role in the upcoming reboot of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. It seems like Keanu’s star continues to rise and the Internet is here for it.

The proof? Change.org’s latest petition that has called for Keanu to become Time’s 2019 Person of the Year. With a lofty goal of 75,000 virtual signatures, the petition has already gained over 57,000 signatures as of June 2019. Crazily enough, this brilliant plan is the brainchild of Jackson Beem, whose idea it was to approach Time Magazine in the first place.

All The Awards

Jackson’s reasoning to nominate Keanu Reeves to Time Magazine is simple. Beem shared on Change.org that, “Keanu is the most wholesome person alive, make him the person of the year! Keanu has secretly donated millions of his earnings to children’s hospitals and other charities, and has done amazing things for people in public while ask for nothing in return.” Case closed!

It’s official: Keanu Reeves truly deserves all the awards. Thanks to the resurgence of the “Keanussance,” the Internet might just get what it wants. Change.org also allows for petitioners to donate money to the cause. Wen Tian Hiew stated his reasoning for signing Change.org’s petition, saying “Keanu Reeves is an amazing human being. He donates his earnings to children’s hospitals without being pompous about it. He is just so breathtaking.” Even Tesla creator Elon Musk signed the petition, joking that “Keanu Reaves took my spot but he still good.” Of course, Musk’s comments gained almost 300 likes immediately!

A Good Year

2019 is a very good year for Keanu Reeves fans. That’s because the mysterious actor has a lot of great projects coming out this year. Surprising, Reeves has an exciting voice role as Duke Caboom in Toy Story 4, which was just released on June 20, 2019. Plus, Keanu’s making a comeback to the big screen in his classic role as Ted in the 2020 film Bill & Ted Face The Music. Apparently, Reeves has been helping Bill & Ted writers bring the third installment of the iconic series to theaters since 2010. Reportedly, the reason that it has taken so long is that the producers wanted it to be an authentic addition to the series. Fortunately, the Excellent Adventure is scheduled to be released on August 10, 2020.

Also, the Internet is losing it over Reeves’ return to the John Wick franchise. Recently, Lionsgate dished that John Wick: Chapter 4 will be released on May 21, 2021. Right before John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum came out, Wick director Chad Stahelski confirmed his involvement with John Wick 4 on Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” thread. Evidently, Reeves himself said that he would continue playing the titular character of John Wick as long as the movies continue to crush it at the box office. Since Lionsgate officially announced John Wick 4 during the opening week of John Wick 3, it looks like it really is the Year of Keanu.
