Okay, so answer me this ...

I see there's a song called "Falling Slowly" on the album by The Swell Season, released in 2006. Is it a different song?

If not, how the heck was the song eligible for the Oscar this year? Doesn't the song have to specifically be written for the film to be nominated?

Not that I want it taken away or anything, but I thought that was really weird.

I also heard the song Falling Slowly in the movie Feast of Love just the other day. It's the exact same song and i wondered the same thing.

The song WAS written for the film, but films take a lot longer to get completed, find distribution, etc. Hansard had been working with the writer/director for a while and fashioned the song while the screenplay was being written, I imagine.

There was actually a question a few weeks ago about the song's eligibility, but eventually the Academy researched the history of the song and the film, and concluded that it was okay to contend for the award.

I forgot to mention, I liked the chemistry between Anne Hathaway & Steve Carell when they did their Get Smart routine. They really reminded me of Don Adams & Barbara Feldon

maybe the movie won't be too bad

You're right about the chemistry, and Hathaway is underrated, but I think you're giving Hollywood too much credit. We'll see...
