Can Player Unknown's Battlegrounds be Game of the Year

Today we're talking about Player Unknown's Battleground. How this game is shaping the way we play online. Though this game is on the top charts of Steam, Twitch, and the hype on an Xbox One version on the way. Should it be in the running for game outlets "Game of the Year"? The game is still in its beta stage, and there are still plenty of bugs and glitches. Is a game more about how popular it is rather than how well it runs and pushes the envelope of game culture?
