"Falling Slowly"... an original?
I've seen this song being bandied about as an original song contender (and nominee in small little awards things). But isn't it ineligible? Wasn't it released on a CD Glen Hansard made before Once was ever conceived? I hate to say it, but that seems like a cut and dried case of "NOT original."
But maybe I'm wrong? I could have misinterpreted the info I gleaned way back when.
Or maybe some people just have very very lax rules. But the academy - at least in this particular category - does not. So I'm not expecting the song to go anywhere. But I'd love to be wrong.
Does anybody know more than I do? Anybody?
