  1. Thanks Nadine- didn’t know they were out today! Of course not all of the nominated films out here yet…arghhh. Great news about Glenn and Marketa-love that song!

  2. Yeah, fair play to Glen Hansard. It is a nice tune. There were a lot of nasty and begrudging remarks (in the company I was in) when it was announced yesterday. Pity people can’t just wish the guy well.
