Why Do We Adore?

These are only a few comments left on the youtube site in relation to this video. There is a purpose of this I promise...

When I first saw this youtube video on Woody taking home the oscar I was stunned by all of the people in the audience. Look at how they each give him a standing ovation, claps, and big smiles... all in one big room with a stage. It is so interesting to me how much we tend to idolize people without even realizing that we do so. To think that ONE MAN could stir up this much emotion in people. Which makes me pose the question... What is it that an individual has to capture adoring fans? What is a fan? Is it a person who is obsessed with the works of another? Why are they obsessed with these works? It is just so interesting to me how we look up to individuals so much that we put them in a different category. For example: When a crazed fan sees the person they are "fanning" why do they cry? What is so amazing about the person? Is it really their work or is it the pure fascination one has with someone different... someone society puts on a pedestal?

But it's not even people we just admire or put on a pedestal:
Even inanimate are deemed special and unique.

People come from all over to see the Statue of Liberty, but why? Yes, it has a history is that why we admire it... or do some people just want to go because we have been told this monument is what makes America beautiful... I am not sure, but what ever it is I still want to see it. HA!
