Lily Gladstone Says She Is “Feeling The Love Big Time” After Oscars Loss

Despite not winning the best lead actress category at the 2024 Oscars Sunday, Lily Gladstone says she is “feeling the love big time” following the ceremony. Gladstone was neck-and-neck throughout awards season for the honor in a race that was too close to call with Emma Stone, who eventually won the statuette for her amazing performance in Poor Things, and many expressed disappointment over her loss.

Gladstone, nominated for her starring role as Mollie Burkhart in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, would have become the first Native American in the history of the Oscars to win the best actress award. But shed no tears for Gladstone, who is feeling much love, “especially from Indian country,” she wrote on X/Twitter. “Better believe when I was leaving the Dolby Theater and walked passed the big Oscar statue I gave that golden booty a little Coup tap,” she added.

Gladstone also felt a sense of pride during the performance by best original song nominee Scott George performing Killers of the Flower Moon’s “Wahzhazhe (A Song For My People)” with the Osage Singers during the ceremony.

“When watching the Osage Singers at the Oscars, my inner voice said ‘They’re the ones bringing us all up on stage tonight, that’s how it should be,’” Gladstone wrote in a separate tweet. “The history in the film and of the moment rightfully belong to the Osage Nation. What an honor to be close enough to feel the drum.”

Gladstone rose to frontrunner status, particularly after her Best Actress win at the Screen Actors Guild awards, the most predictive award for the lead actress Oscar.
