Nah. It's like, for example, Time's Person of the Year. Hitler made it once, Stalin made it twice, as did Nixon. I guess they choose that based on how influential the person was, even if said influence wasn't a good one...
And one can't deny that Fifty Shades of Gray
is influential. Then again, so was Twishite

. Or The Eye of Argon
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
