（这部分开始转贴） 男主角Glen Hansard (葛倫·漢瑟)在現實生活是愛爾蘭樂團The Frames主唱，女主角Marketa Irglova(瑪琪塔·伊葛洛瓦)本身則是捷克歌手，兩人在這部電影之前都沒有甚麼戲劇演出經驗，在拍戲期間兩人也因日久生情成為真正的情侶，真的很高 興得知這個消息，尤其在看完電影之後。 當然，最讓人振奮的消息是電影歌曲FallingSlowly榮獲2008第80屆奧斯卡最佳原創歌曲獎項，擊敗同個獎項入圍三首歌的"曼哈頓奇緣"，以 一部成本僅16萬美元的超低成本獨立製片電影，竟能入圍且登上奧斯卡殿堂當著上億觀眾面前彈奏演唱，接著又拿到小金人，那一晚對他們來說，是一個相當驚喜 不斷且不可思議的夜晚吧，正如男主角GlenHansard 的得獎感言: Thanks! This is amazing. What are we doing here? This is mad. Wemade this film two years ago. We shot on two Handycams. It took usthree weeks to make. We made it for a hundred grand. We never thoughtwe would come into a room like this and be in front of you people.It'sbeen an amazing thing.
還有女主角Marketa Irglova在廣告時間後被主持人Jon Stewart請上台補充的得獎感言: This is such a big deal, not only for us, but for all otherindependent musicians and artists that spend most of their timestruggling, and this, the fact that we're standing here tonight, thefact that we're able to hold this, it's just to prove no matter how farout your dreams are, it's possible. And, you know, fair play to thosewho dare to dream and don't give up. And this song was written from aperspective of hope, and hope at the end of the day connects us all, nomatter how different we are.
