Midnight Movie: Good Luck to Once at the Grammys

The 50th Annual Grammy Awards are tonight. The Irish foreign movie Once has been nominated for two categories: "Best Compilation Soundtrack Album For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media" and "Best Song Written For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media" for the song "Falling Slowly" (heard above). The song's validity as an Oscar nomination was challenged, but the committee found everything to be fine, so Once stays. It was not nominated for a Golden Globe.

Here at LAist, we've reviewed the movie and checked out their live tour. Question is, will it be worth our time to actually watch the award show in their 50th year?
