Once: Best Original Song

Posted 25 Feb 2008 in Uncategorized

I confess I didn’t watch the Oscar‘s last night, I’m not in the habit of sitting through all the celebrity and celebration – though I do enjoy hearing what films were nominated and what films won. And I am a sucker for olive branches on a movie cover or “academy award nominee” when deciding what to watch.

Readers will remember I posted not long ago about a movie I really enjoyed Once.

It was nominated for and won Best Original Song last night for “Falling Slowly” It really makes me happy to see great art noticed and rewarded and such a hopeful story of struggling independent musicians to be recognized and gain some success. I still highly recommend the soundtrack.

Now playing: Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova – Falling Slowly

    I agree Nick. It seems like a little glimmer of real art and talent being appreciated, among all the politics and ridiculousness of the culture of Hollywood and the oscars.

    Happy for them.
