    Are you kidding? ‘Once’ gets all kinds of love nine times sideways. ‘Once’ appeals very strongly to a certain demographic. So strongly that I have seen lifelong Christians with less dedication than most ‘Once’ fans.

    Still, the Academy is a considerably different demographic than the “poor struggling artist with three chords and the truth” one. Let’s just say this – when musicals get nominated, for Academy Awards they usually involve a certain amount of sequined dresses.
