2016-11-14 8:30:00 : Katie McNeice
The Oscar-winning Irish Talent will receive the award on February 23rd 2017, at a casual event which traditionally takes place the Thursday preceding the Oscars.

Hansard is also due to perform at the awards, which take place in Santa Monica and will be emceed by J. J. Abrams.

He received his Oscar win in 2007 for his song ‘Falling Slowly’ in feature film ‘Once’ (John Carney), co-written by Markéta Irglová (The Odd Life of Timothy Green). More recently Hansard is credited on Carney’s 2016 title ‘Sing Street’ for songs ‘Don’t Go Down’ and ‘Go Now.’

He is also known for his involvement in Irish titles ‘The Commitments’ (1991) directed by Alan Parker in which he played Outspan Foster. Since this early role he has composed and performed a range of tracks for Irish titles ‘Disco Pigs’ (Kirsten Sheridan), ‘Goldfish Memory’ (Elizabeth Gill) and Carney’s 2013 musical drama ‘Begin Again’ starring Keira Knightly (The Imitation Game).

Previous Irish recipients include Brendan Gleeson (Calvary), Neil Jordan (Michael Collins), Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn) and Jim Sheridan (Secret Scripture).
