Lily Gladstone is First Native American Nominated for Oscar Best Actress

It’s Oscar season and the nominations are in for the numerous awards given during this annual entertainment event.  Among the many categories and nominated actors and movies, one stands above the rest as being a new face in the same crowd: Lily Gladstone.  Portraying an indigenous heroine in Martin Scorsese’s most recent film Killers of the Flower Moon, Gladstone, because of her role,  has been given the distinct honor of being the first Native American woman to be nominated for “Best Actress”.  Earlier this month she also received the “Golden Globe” for Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Motion Picture Drama.  In her acceptance speech for this award, she shifted focus to all Native Americans saying, “this is for every rez kid, every little urban kid, every little Native kid out there who has a dream, who is seeing themselves represented and our stories told by ourselves in our own words, with tremendous allies and tremendous trust from with and from each other.”  Lily Gladstone has already shown she has the acting prowess and the ability to win prestigious awards, but when put against other nominees, including Emma Stone and Carey Mulligan, will she rise above the rest and receive this historic award? Find out on March 10.
