And the winner is…

The Oscars got one thing right tonight: Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova for the song, Falling Slowly from the movie Once. I saw this movie a couple of weeks ago, during my trip to New Orleans, and loved every moment of it. I heard that they had been nominated for best song (or whatever the technical term was for the category) and I was rooting for them… and checking the CNN website a few minutes ago discovered that they had won!

Here are some YouTube clips to remember the moment.

Watch them perform at the Oscars, once, Falling Slowly from Once:
