Lily Gladstone won Best Actress at the NY Critics Circle Awards – but is she supporting?

Here are some photos from last night’s New York Critics Circle Awards. I haven’t been paying much attention to the critics’ awards this year, but I have noticed that there isn’t really a huge consensus. There are several big races which are “up for grabs” and I’m not even sure how the Oscar nominations are going to be culled down in some of these categories. The NY Critics Circle handed out awards to Da’Vine Joy Randolph (supporting actress, The Holdovers), Christopher Nolan (director, Oppenheimer), Martin Scorsese (best film, Killers of the Flower Moon), Lily Gladstone (best actress, Killers), Charles Melton (supporting actor, May December) and Franz Rogowski (best actor, Passages). As I said, all over the place.

I’m including photos of Da’Vine, Charles Melton, Lily Gladstone and Marty. Are we even sure that Lily is going up for lead actress? Are we about to have another category fraud conversation, because I would have considered her in the supporting category? It’s cool that Melton is getting so much love for May December – his performance was great and I genuinely hope he gets an Oscar nomination. The best director race is probably between Nolan and Scorsese, and I hope Nolan wins everything. Da’Vine should absolutely get nominated for supporting actress too – but I wish Dominic Sessa was getting more attention for that film. It was his first film and he knocked it out of the park!

    Chris Melton is kinda making me want to go watch Riverdale even though I have zero interest in teen dramas and I heard Riverdale was exceptionally bad. That man is HOT.

    These ladies are extremely talented so congratulations on winning. Da’Vine has been a girl crush for awhile. She’s fascinating to me because her ability to just sit in a character and make you feel like you know that character from somewhere is awesome. I love actors like her. They are artisans.

    Lily Gladstone is the lead actress in “Killers” so that justifies it I suppose. It sucks that women get stuck in smaller roles and then everyone questions that they deserve a best actress nod. Her role should have been bigger while the men’s role should have been smaller.

    Lily’s character is just borderline lead, so I think it’s actually surprising she pushing for BA even though she was absolutely amazing in it. If she campaigned for Supporting her Oscar win would be all but guaranteed. In Lead it’s always harder and there’s Emma Stone who’s also campaigning like crazy and the whole movie is about her. Also rooting for Nolan! I thought I’d get bored with that film, but it really was one of my favourites of the yearAnd I hope Past Lives and Celine Song get a ot of love at the Oscars.

    I thought Lily Gladstone announced publicly a few months ago that she would be campaigning in lead and not supporting?

    Lily is the beating heart of the film. The entire story revolves around her. And she’s so good in it. What she does with the stillness of her face and her eyes; it’s astonishing.

    As astonishing as how she looks in this dress.

      Agreed. She is sublime and it’s authentic in terms of our non-verbal ways, which is leading lady. But, whether judges catch up with that is another matter and there won’t be a lot of surprise in Native communities if she is overlooked. Not happy, but not unexpected. I’m sure whatever outcomes, she’ll handle it in a way I’ll try and emulate.

    Off to find the designer of Lily’s dress. Love, love, love!
