"The fact that we're standing here tonight, the fact that we're able to hold this, it's just proof that 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. This song was written from the perspective of hope, and hope, at the end of the day, connects us all, no matter how different we are."
--Markéta Irglová, during her second chance at an acceptance speech. The song "Falling Slowly" from Once won the Oscar for the best song. The band started playing as soon as Glen Hansard finished his comments, but after the commercial break, Jon Stewart brought her back out so she could "enjoy [her] moment."
