Saoirse in 48-hour charge from coast to coast for her Oscar bid

Saoirse Ronan is embarking on a coast-to-coast dash across the U.S. as she bids for Oscar glory.

The busy young star will spend just 48 hours in Hollywood for the Academy Awards – and will be heading straight back to work regardless of whether she wins the gong tonight. 

The actress is making her Broadway debut next week and has just two days to lap up the Oscar festivities in L.A. 

“Saoirse’s in the thick of final rehearsals for her role in The Crucible in New York and didn’t even get to Los Angeles until yesterday,” said a source. 

 “She’s really looking forward to Oscar night, but it’s been a chaotic time. She’s been travelling from coast to coast for various awards over the past couple of months.

“Whether or not she wins the Oscar tonight, she’ll be heading straight back to New York on Monday for final rehearsals.”
