Announcing mtvU’s 2011 People Of The Year

  by mtvU.

Today we are excited to honor our 2011 People of the Year: “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. This year, Parker and Stone continued to push the envelope by targeting hypocrisy with a comedic sensibility that satirizes zealotry and inserts reason into the global debate. And, shifting the focus to spotlight a very different cultural figure, mtvU’s “Woman of the Year” Aung San Suu Kyi remained a powerful symbol of peace, courage and humanity in 2011.
