astro Oscar Nominated Music (1) Oscar Nominated Music 29 Jan 08

Desert Dancer and I just watched the movie "Once" and found the music great. Just noted the following announcement:

"In a sea of songs by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz for the Disney film Enchanted, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova have picked up an Oscar nomination for "Falling Slowly" from their movie Once. The film, which contains lots of music written by the pair, tells the story of an Irish busker who meets and falls in love with a fellow musician who recently immigrated from the Czech Republic. Hansard, a member of the Irish band The Frames, and Irglova, who is indeed Czech, performed together before shooting the film and are now a couple in real life."

I would like to see this win since the music was performed with such heart and talent.

What other Oscar nominated films did anyone find wonderful too? So many have nothing interesting about them.
