Lily Gladstone’s Oscar nomination has become a historic moment for her as the first Native American woman to earn a best actress nomination. Her performance in “Killers of the Flower Moon” has garnered widespread acclaim and attention, culminating in both a Golden Globe win and the Oscar nomination.

Gladstone knew she wanted to be in Oklahoma, among the Osage community, should the news of her nomination arrive. Growing up between Seattle and the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana, Gladstone has a deep connection to the indigenous community, even learning the Osage language for her role in the film.

The recognition for her performance is not only a personal accomplishment for Gladstone but also a significant cultural moment. She emphasized the importance of spotlighting indigenous talent in the industry and breaking down stereotypes about Native American women.

“Killers of the Flower Moon” has been praised for its portrayal of the relationship between Mollie and her community, shedding light on the love and resilience within the indigenous community. Gladstone hopes that the film’s massive scale will ignite curiosity and appreciation for indigenous stories and culture.

Looking ahead, Gladstone expressed excitement for future projects and collaborations, recognizing the significance of her success as an opportunity to contribute to getting other marginalized stories, particularly in Indian country, brought to the forefront.

Gladstone’s journey from growing up on reservations to making history in the film industry serves as an inspiration and a testament to the importance of authentic representation and storytelling.
