Indigenous Actress Lily Gladstone Deserves the Oscar for Best Actress


Actress Lily Gladstone has just made history. This year, she became the first Indigenous person to win the Golden Globe award for Best Actress — as well as the first Native American woman to be nominated for Best Actress by the Oscars.

This is a beautiful and momentous achievement. When the 96th Oscars ceremony is held on Sunday, March 10, the Academy must build on this groundbreaking occasion by correctly awarding the Oscar to Gladstone!

Hollywood has long relied on racism and dehumanizing stereotypes when it comes to portraying Native Americans and other Indigenous people and telling their stories on screen. On top of that, prestigious awards have spent generations locking actors of color out of receiving these top honors — choosing to celebrate white actors instead.

Now, Gladstone is being honored for her role in the film Killers of the Flower Moon, about a real-life series of racist murders in the 1920s. During this Reign of Terror, white people targeted Native Americans on the Osage reservation in Oklahoma and killed them to steal oil riches.

Awarding Gladstone the Oscar would be significant on multiple fronts. In addition to highlighting her incredible work as an artist and commending the achievements of Indigenous actors, it would also bring increased attention to what Native American communities have endured for generations.

That's why we're calling on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to award the Oscar for Best Actress to Lily Gladstone! This is its chance to make an impactful decision — and correctly highlight someone whose talent deserves to be in the spotlight. Sign the petition now!

P.S. It's time for the Oscars to show that it is taking steps to address its discriminatory past. One way to do that is by acknowledging how phenomenal Gladstone's work has been. Sign the petition.
