Here Are the Biggest Moments From the 2021 TIME100 Broadcast—Highlighting the World’s Most Influential People

The 2021 TIME100 list of the world’s most influential people featured pioneers like Billie Eilish, titans like Simone Biles and icons like Britney Spears. The TIME100 broadcast special highlighted these figures—and more—Monday night on ABC.

The primetime TV event featured performances from Eilish and country music star Kane Brown. It also shined a spotlight on Spears’ battle to regain control of her life, and the incredible advances humanity has made in space—thanks in part to SpaceX founder Elon Musk and NASA scientist MiMi Aung.

Here are some of the biggest moments from Monday’s TIME100 special on ABC.

Kate Winslet took on the myth of the ‘perfect’ female celebrity

Kate Winslet, who had just bagged an Emmy Award for her role in Mare of Easttown on Sunday, talked about working to redefine the portrayal of women on screen.

“As an entertainment industry we all have a responsibility to make sure that we are being absolutely authentically true to who we are,” she told TIME. “That we’re not being skinny and conforming. That we’re not changing our faces, that we’re not altering our bodies and achieving some strange idea of perfection that doesn’t exist.”

Winslet’s message to Hollywood: “Be yourself. It’s the easiest thing to remember how to do.”

Simone Biles put her humanity first

Biles was already the greatest gymnast of her time, and was expected to add to her four gold medals at the Tokyo Summer Olympics. Instead, she did something bigger; her stunning decision to withdraw from the women’s all-around gymnastics final vaulted mental health into the international conversation.

“For years, I’ve only ever been congratulated for winning. Now it’s like—for being human, for being vulnerable,” Biles told TIME.

The 24-year-old returned to Olympic competition to win a bronze medal on the balance beam. But more than the medals, Biles rejoices in the knowledge that stepping aside was a victory on its own.

“Just putting yourself first, as a human, rather than an athlete, was very powerful. Because most people forget the human aspect of ourselves,” Biles said. “This bronze feels like a gold to me.”

She added: “I feel like I got back up. I had that courage, I fought. And I didn’t care about the outcome.”

Warriors’ First-Rounder Likely to Miss Start of Season: Report


Dubs’ big man James Wiseman is not progressing as the Golden State Warriors had hoped.

The former No. 2 overall pick tore his meniscus in the latter half of his rookie season and does not appear on track to open his sophomore year on the active roster, according to a report from Anthony Slater, of The Athletic.

Warriors provide update on James Wiseman, recovering from meniscus surgery. He will only participate in controlled, individual portions of training camp and is expected to begin full jumping around Oct. 15, only four days before opener. So it’s clear he will miss start of season.

“Warriors provide update on James Wiseman, recovering from meniscus surgery,” Slater tweeted on Monday, September 20. “He will only participate in controlled, individual portions of training camp and is expected to begin full jumping around Oct. 15, only four days before the opener. So it’s clear he will miss the start of the season.”

Tune on Wiseman’s Injury, Rehab has Changed Meaningfully in Recent Days

The news, disheartening to Golden State fans and detrimental to Wiseman’s progress as a potential young star in the league, struck a significantly different note than a previous injury assessment just over two weeks ago.

In early September, Wiseman posted a picture of himself on Instagram handling the ball and moving from side-to-side, while maneuvering confidently toward the hoop.

A prominent physician — Dr. Nirav Pandya, director of the Center for Sports Medicine for Young Athletes in the Bay Area — went public with encouraging thoughts as to Wiseman’s rehabilitation status based on the images he saw.

“Nice! At the nearly 4 month mark after meniscus surgery looks as if #Wiseman is doing on-court drills with agility/running,” Pandya tweeted on September 4. “Great sign and right on track (if not a little ahead). Bodes well for training camp and regular season. Hoping the knee responds well!”

It should be noted that Pandya was not involved in Wiseman’s rehab firsthand, and the tweet the doctor posted 16 days ago has since been deleted.

To start crucial final home stand, Oakland A’s lose in underwhelming fashion Seattle Mariners

OAKLAND — The Oakland A’s final home stand, one key in launching themselves back into the wild card, did not start off with a bang, but a whimper. With the season closing and the postseason window along with it, every loss is a gut punch

The Seattle Mariners, also still right in the thick of the American League wild card race, looked a little hungrier to close the gap, handing the A’s a 4-2 loss on Monday night in front of a season-low — in a post-COVID restriction crowd — of 4,068.

Sean Manaea didn’t have his best stuff, and the Mariners made him pay dearly. The A’s left-handed starter lasted five innings, but gave up eight hits with four runs allowed. Seattle tacked on three runs in a four-hit, one-walk inning — Ty France’s RBI single and Kyle Seager’s two-run double. Seager drove in another run in the fifth inning.

Though Domingo Acevedo and Sam Moll could keep the A’s within striking distance in their innings of relief, the A’s had no fight in them to close the gap against left-hander Tyler Anderson. Chad Pinder and Khris Davis combined for back-to-back doubles to open up the third inning, and it looked like a rally was forming with a run on the board and one in scoring position. But Elvis Andrus hit into a sacrifice bunt to move Davis to third, then Josh Harrison and Starling Marte hit Anderson’s first pitches for outs to end the inning with nothing more.

And the A’s had nothing more after that. Getting four hits total against Anderson.

With Anderson out of the game in the eighth, the A’s tacked a run on reliever Diego Castillo through a three straight hits from Andrus, Harrison and Marte. Seattle manager Scott Servais called on right-hander Paul Sewald to strike out Matt Olson looking at a slider that hit perfectly the outside corner and Matt Chapman on three straight fastballs to strand the runners. The A’s left five on base.

Steelers Insider Offers Injury Update on TJ Watt, Other Members of the ‘Groin Club’

The Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t required to issue another injury/participation report until Sept. 22, but Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette believes that the names of at least three defensive starters will be prominent on Wednesday’s list. On Monday night, the longtime Steelers insider reported that “the Steelers may not have all members of the Groin Club—Joe Haden, Devin Bush and T.J. Watt—ready for Sunday’s game against the Bengals.”

The Steelers may not have all members of the Groin Club — Joe Haden, Devin Bush and T.J. Watt — ready for Sunday’s game against the Bengals.

That’s bad news for a Steelers defense that gave up 26 points and 382 passing yards in a home loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sept. 19, thanks in part to the absence of all three. Haden and Bush missed the Raiders game in its entirety, having suffered groin injuries in practice two days prior to the game.

As for Watt, he left the contest in the second quarter, which took much of the steam out of Pittsburgh’s previously fierce pass rush, to which Watt had already contributed a sack and forced fumble.

Never mind that the Steelers also lost nose tackle Tyson Alualu to a fractured ankle during the team’s first defensive series of the game, which forced Pittsburgh to dig deep into its interior defensive line depth during the contest.

Nose Tackle Tyson Alualu Had Ankle Surgery

Speaking of Alualu, the 12-year veteran underwent surgery on Monday to repair his broken ankle. The 34-year-old went on to post a photo to Instagram, one showing him recovering in his hospital room. The photo is accompanied by a message promising that he will “bounce back as soon as (he) can.”

In the meantime, reports that the organization has placed Alualu on its Reserve/Injured list, where he joins Stephon Tuitt, Zach Banner, Anthony McFarland Jr., Joshua Dobbs and Demarcus Christmas.

With Alualu out of the lineup indefinitely, the team also promoted defensive lineman Henry Mondeaux from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Mondeaux—a former undrafted free agent out of Oregon—appeared in 11 games for the …read more
