### Oscar: Markéta Irglová & Glen Hansard, "Once"

Markéta Irglová became the first Czech female Oscar winner, together with Glen Hansard, for their song "Falling Slowly" from "Once", a movie about struggling musicians, in the category of movie songs. See their thanks at the ceremony.

While the movie is surely going to have a smaller impact than "An Inconvenient Truth", the song is pretty touching and a 10,000% profit margin of the movie is not bad, either. ;-)
