The fresh owner of Oscar, Marketa Irglova, flew home first time from the festive ceremony in Los Angeles. She is going to spend about a week in Valasske Mezirici, her home-town in Moravia. Her partner, Glen Hansard, with whom she sings the Falling Slowly anthem, stays in New York.
Marketa, who just turned 20, goes on tour of 25 concerts at American cities. The Oscar success lifted sales of Once soundtrack even higher, and we are talking about a record, which became golden (half a million sold copies) before getting the Oscar.
