TIME Magazine revealed this morning its short listed candidates for their 2012 Person of the Year Award. Apple CEO Tim Cook made the final list of eight total famous candidates from business, politics and science.

The reveal will take place tomorrow morning–here are the final eight:

  • U.S. president Barack Obama
  • Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi
  • Bill and Hillary Clinton for their global humanitarian and political activism

Last year, former Apple CEO Steve Jobs was nominated for the 2011 Person of the Year, but ‘The Protester’ ended up winning.
