Frame Up At Oscars

Irish Band Triumph

The 80th annual Academy Awards have been and gone, and amongst the big winners of the night were Irish rock band The Frames.

The influential and long-standing Irish group picked up the Oscar for “Best Music (Song)” in recognition of their work on the acclaimed film “Once”. Written and directed by the band’s ex-bassist John Carney, the film featured the song “Falling Slowly”, sung by Frames’ guitarist Glen Hansard and guest singer Maketa Irglova.

The Frames are no strangers to Hollywood success – Hansard previously starred as “Outspan” Foster in “The Commitments”.

Elsewhere on Oscar night, the award for “Best Music (Score)” went to “Atonement”, with its sublime Dario Marianelli score.
