Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova Oscar Acceptance Speeches

Glen Hansard gave an acceptance speech when "Falling Slowly" won the Best Original Song Oscar, but as his partner Marketa Irglova stepped to the microphone, the orchestra swelled up and she was unable to say anything. After the commercial break, host Jon Stewart had Irglova come back on and give her thanks and her thoughts on winning the Oscar... a nice move by Stewart, or whomever made the decision to let her back on.

Below are the acceptance speeches by both Hansard and Irglova.
