Sadly, this clip of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova accepting their Oscar was taken down from YouTube. It was a beautiful moment.

I cried when I saw this:

It was Glen Hansard's acceptance speech at the Academy Awards. He and Marketa Irglova starred in the movie Once (I mention it in my Top 5 Movies of 2007 post) and they won the oscar for best song.

It was a beautiful moment.

Really? I mean I liked his speech, but I was much more moved by hers, especially after they were kind enough to bring her back up there after she had been shafted by the orchestra.

The speech did choke me up, but I was truly moved that they won. I may have teared up again during her speech.
