Well she did it!
Montana native, Lily Gladstone, born in Kalispell and who attended school in Browning and college at the U of M graduating with a Masters in Fine Art in acting and a minor in Native American studies has just won Best Actress at the Golden Globe Awards. She goes down in history as the first Indigenous woman to win such an award.
The “Killers of the Flower Moon” star took home the award on January 7 for her portrayal of real-life hero Mollie Burkhart in the Martin Scorsese epic.
“Killers of the Flower Moon” follows the serial killings of Osage Nation members in 1920s Oklahoma, led by organized crime mastermind William Hale (Robert De Niro) and his nephew Ernest Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio), who was married to oil heiress Mollie (Gladstone). The murders lead Mollie to ask the newly formed FBI for help in solving the case.”
