When peer recognition becomes a standard
Yesterday took place the 2019 Oscars. Great evening as always, but what is it all about? Year after year, we are looking at this kind of gala but is it still the same one as it was? Let’s look a bit deeper. Since 1929, this ceremony like many others presents us some aspects of the industry’s effort to create content we should appreciate. I’m not an expert of the code of conduct, social standards, and other customs of these industries, but I can at least remove a thick layer of colorful noise and look at the foundation of this world. The humblest artisan will always find it hard to be glorified in any way as their craft was usually made in a sober manner and they usually prefer to be in the shadow of their own creation than to be under the spotlight. But a human being what it is, vanity is never far away and can spoil in a gentle way the pride we have of our art. Whether we want it or not, social belonging will always make us feel that peer recognition is important as it gives us the impression that people may remember us as a valuable member of the community, even if the future cannot offer any guarantee. Despite all this, we must agree that nominees are ultimately there for what they achieved and not for what they could achieve. This is something we must recognize and salute.
