SPOTLIGHT April 2024: LILY GLADSTONE, Actor and Activist

There is no denying 2023 was Lily Gladstone’s (she/they) breakout year. After acting for a decade in bit parts and as part of ensemble films, Gladstone’s name is the one on everyone’s lips thanks to their portrayal of Mollie Burkhart in The Killers of the Flower Moon. In a film dominated by men and lauded male talent like Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Brendan Fraser, and director Martin Scorsese, it’s Gladstone’s performance that’s rightfully being singled out. Collecting numerous awards for their performance including the SAG Award, Golden Globe, and dozens of critics’ circle awards including Best Actress and Best Breakthrough Performance from AWFJ, Gladstone’s award run was capped off with an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.
