marketa + glen


Am so happy for these two. Her unassuming speech stole the show.

I think this is the first real time I've been more excited about the Best Song award than Best Movie!
So happy they won :)

Chelsea said...

Totally agree. Was my favorite part of the entire show. Both of them are just darling. Whenever she talks, she has something amazing to say.

Jill said...

Ann Marie said...

Wow. Everyone is blogging about this. So I watched the Oscar acceptance speech on youtube. Hooray for truly beautiful people in this world. I hope this is a sign of things to come...

Kaylen said...

Awww I wrote about this on my blog! Cute.

I love this movie.

Jeremy said...

Word.

Tiffany said...

That was my favorite part, hands down.

Cupcake said...

I didn't see the awards show, but wow, I loved the movie (if you count crying through the entire thing as love). Amazing! I need to buy the soundtrack. Thanks for the reminder! - shea

Jane Flanagan said...

Yay! It made my Oscars, but that could just be patriotism talking. I saw the Commitments on the weekend too... it was funny to see Glen so changed since then!

Dede said...

Me too Ali! Loved her sweetness!

aimee heff said...

ditto. i got all teary. I am a sucker for these kind of stories.

Uncle Beefy said...

AGREED!!! When only he got the chance to speak I was all, like, "What the?!?!?" So I was uber happy when Mr. Stewart brought her back out saying "Enjoy your moment." You bet!

lane said...

Ditto! She is so fresh-faced and earnest. There is something about them that is just goodness.

Design Addict said...

wow, i loved the movie and as soon as i finished watching it i downloaded the soundtrack from itunes. i am so happy for them! it was such a wonderfully sweet and endearing movie and i felt the same way watching them perform and then give their speeches when they won! yay for the little guy!

Catherine said...

So wonderful, I watched the whole thing waiting for their performance and hoped so much they would win. I wish Glen had let Mar speak first tho, then he would be a true gentleman. She did make up for it with her beautiful words though!

Jessica said...

i didn't really enjoy the movie, but I loved that they won. I think the song is beautiful and has a great hook.

d.Sharp said...

Best in Show! So glad they won and her speech could not have been sweeter.

Sara O'Mara said...

Couldn't agree more. Her words moved me to tears. I think her sentiment embodies what those awards are supposed to be about: being a craftsman of your trade, having the balls to develop a dream, going for a long shot, having the conviction to bring your vision to life and enjoying the respect & admiration of your community. It's easy to lose sight of that with all the admittedly beautiful red dresses and styled celebs. She was a breath of fresh air.

Joanna Goddard said...

yes, she was so sweet, and they are both adorable (i'm a sucker for irish accents!) i am dying to see that movie now. :)
