Expression vs. Competition

I love watching Birdman. And when it won the 2015 Academy Awards on February 22 as Best Picture and Best Director movie, I love what the director, Alejandro González Iñárritu, said about it:

“This is crazy in a way, talking about that little prick called ego. Ego loves competition. Because for someone to win, someone has to lose. But the paradox is that true art, true individual expression, as all the work of these incredible fellow film makers, can’t be compared, can’t be labeled, can’t be defeated. Because they exist, and our work will only be judged, as always, by time.”

Totally agree with this dude. And I think that applies also in music and any other art expressions.
