"Once" is the little movie that could!

Shot in Ireland over three weeks for a paltry hundred thousand dollars, the movie and it's soundtrack have gone on to garner critical acclaim, box office success and now, an Academy award for best original song for "Falling Slowly".

Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, who starred in and created the soundtrack, gave a heartfelt acceptance speech.

"This is such a big deal, not only for us, but for all independent musicians and artists who spend so much of their time struggling," said Irglova. "No matter how far out your dreams are, it's possible ... this song was written was from a perspective of hope, and at the end of the day, hope connects us all."

Once is available on DVD and the soundtrack can be downloaded on iTunes and other music sites.
