Looks like MySpace removed the original account.. see my related post from 2007 about the 10 Minute Dark Star. I went for a look and couldn’t find.. well at least I saved it.

And the Oscar goes to Once

oscar for once

Congratulations to Glen, Marketa and the team behind the movie Once. They picked up the Oscar for Best Song just a few hours ago in the 80th Academy Awards…. Well deserved and a great achievement for independent music and film.

Acceptance speech from the Oscars site

Glen Hansard:
Thanks! This is amazing. What are we doing here? This is mad. We made this film two years ago. We shot on two Handycams. It took us three weeks to make. We made it for a hundred grand. We never thought we would come into a room like this and be in front of you people. It’s been an amazing thing. Thanks for taking this film seriously, all of you. It means a lot to us. Thanks to the Academy, thanks to all the people who’ve helped us, they know who they are, we don’t need to say them. This is amazing. Make art. Make art. Thanks.

Marketa Irglova:
Hi everyone. I just want to thank you so much. This is such a big deal, not only for us, but for all other independent musicians and artists that spend most of their time struggling, and this, the fact that we’re standing here tonight, the fact that we’re able to hold this, it’s just to prove no matter how far out your dreams are, it’s possible. And, you know, fair play to those who dare to dream and don’t give up. And this song was written from a perspective of hope, and hope at the end of the day connects us all, no matter how different we are. And so thank you so much, who helped us along way. Thank you.

Here is the moment…
