Thank You Letter to Kathryn Bigelow

Radiation Level:  Low

Listening To:  Victory by PJ Harvey

Sistas Representin'

Thank you Kathryn for making The Hurt Locker.

Thank you for being the first woman to win the Best Directing Oscar and the DGA Award.

Thank you for being smokin’ hot at 59 years old.

Thank you for reminding me that as I get older, I won’t necessarily be looked over.

Thank you for inspiring me to take chances and do things not because they are easy, but because they are hard.

Thank you for saying that directing is a “collaborative effort”.

On this day, when I have zero dollars in my checking account and am struggling with the last 20 pages of my latest screenplay because I feel like what the f*ck is the point, is anyone going to read it?  Thank you for bringing me a comfort I’ve never felt before.

Thank you for making me believe this success thing is not a race.  That this money thing doesn’t define me.

Thank you for inspiring that little voice inside my head that occasionally whispers, “You can do it, you are talented, keep going.”  The volume on that voice just got louder with your win.

Kathryn Bigelow, you rock.

James Cameron, Bigelow's ex-husband, had to be escorted by security for his testosterone fueled attack on the Oscar winner. He was heard shouting, "Girls have cooties!"
