hats off to Jon Stewart

February 24, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

My wife keeps calling me in to watch different Oscar moments and a few minutes ago I watched as Glen Haspard and Marketa Irglova won best song for the amazing “Falling Slowly” from the incredible film “Once”. The obvious shock and joy on their faces was beautiful to see. Haspard got to say his thanks, but the orchestra started to play before Marketa got to say anything. So back to work I go when my wife comes back in to say “you have to see this”. I walk in to Jon Stewart reintroducing Marketa and giving her the mic to say her thanks. A made for TV moment to be sure, but it seems like Stewart was pretty taken with the song and the pair. I look for them to show up on The Daily Show in the next week or two.

Here’s the moment.

If you haven’t heard the song – you should. Enjoy.
