This is me



As 36.6 million viewers know, The Academy Awards (aka The Oscars) aired last week, and there were some surprising outcomes.  It's very trendy to list the Oscar Snubs that drop your jaw — I'mma let you finish, but "Interstellar" was one of the greatest space films of all time! (okay, that’s a stretch, but I still enjoyed it) — and I can't tell if I'm just watching the wrong things, but it does seem like less and less of the movies I happen to see in theaters actually get nominated.  But, maybe that’s just me.

In the midst of all the head-shaking and "the Academy gets it all wrong" this year, I read a very interesting article that got me thinking.  In this so-called "Worst Mistake in 20 Years," the author posits that not naming "Boyhood" Best Picture is something we laypersons will be facepalming about for years to come.  Full disclosure, I have not seen the film, but I've heard very good things, and the premise definitely intrigued me.  Shot intermittently over the course of 12 years, this film transcended not just the limits of time, but storytelling, evoking real responses in its audience about coming-of-age never before dreamed of.

I'm sure the film's reception has been rewarding for all who were involved in it —  even though an Oscar win would have been very nice icing on the cake — but it makes me wonder about people's relationship with their own art.

Does the time it took to create something add weight to one's connection with it? Should it?  Should Richard Linklater (writer and director of "Boyhood") be satisfied with making a groundbreaking work of art, or should he feel as scandalized as the article recommends?  And what about us as the audience?  Does something that took half a lifetime to complete deserve a modicum of more respect and reverence than something thrown together in a week or a month?  I'm not sure the answer to those things.

What do you think, with regard to your works on DeviantArt and off?  :bump:

  • Is there a piece in your gallery that took you much longer to complete than the others?  Share it and a few words about what it means to you.
  • Is there something of yours that has a special place in your heart, but maybe isn't your most-faved or most-commented-upon piece? What is its significance?
  • Does learning of the time and effort involved in a piece change your opinion of it?

~Heidi

P.S. - You are cool, and I am proud of you.

United States
Heidi. Female. American. Tall. Sarcastic. Athletic. Bossy. Financial enthusiast. Olympics lover. TV/fandom fanatic.

I've been fortunate to be involved with deviantART from day one and have held a variety of positions over the past thirteen years. Today, I'm deviantART's Vice President of Marketing.

I graduated college with a Journalism major and Political Science minor, and enjoy all aspects of news and politics. I can often be found watching Fox News, CNN, or CNBC during the wee hours of the morning.

When I'm not working, my hobbies include playing and watching almost all sports (basketball, softball/baseball, volleyball, football, tennis, etc.), traveling, geocaching, investing, and trying to be as funny as humanly possible. When it's time to relax, I'll turn on the television or read a book.

I also used to run GilmoreGirls.org, which was pretty epic during its heyday.

Bolt Award

For her outstanding work with deviantART, Heidi is presented with the illustrious Bolt Award for 2008. Heidi is the embodiment of community spirit, dedication, and drive that makes deviantART what it is today. Her positive attitude and inspiring personality has been an influence on the formation of the site since the very beginning, and without her, deviantART would be a much duller and less magical place.
