So, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova just won the Oscar for Best original song from the movie Once for the song Falling Slowly! Oh, they also performed the song at the Oscars. The Oscars!!!! See this movie folks! Here's some stuff...
'There is a certain poetry in a Grafton Street busker playing the Oscars," grins Glen Hansard.
"I feel like a plumber at a flower show. The indie rocker in me wants to say it's a load of bollocks, but if you are gonna get an award in this life, why not try and get yourself an Oscar?" The 37-year-old Dublin musician's life has the kind of fairy-tale arc that would make a good film, if it hadn't already been turned into one.
Hansard is the co-star of Once, a shoe-string budget feature (made for under £100,000) about an Irish busker and his platonic relationship with a Czech immigrant, played by 19-year-old Marketa Irglova. From extremely humble beginnings ("We never even thought it was going to get released, we just thought we might sell some DVDs after gigs"), it went on to win an award at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and become one of the art-house hits of the year, grossing $7 million in its first three months.
And, it doesn't hurt that Glen is quite easy on the eyes or should i say he's eye candy????
