After losing out on Sunday’s Oscars, Lily Gladstone responded with a heartfelt letter.

On Monday, the actor—whom many critics had picked to take home the lead actress trophy at the 96th Academy Awards for her work in “Killers of the Flower Moon”—said that she was engrossed in the love in her life.

Today, I am particularly touched by the love that has come from Indian Country. “I love you all, seriously,” she posted on X (previously Twitter), adding, “Kittō” with a komimmō.

She went on to say, “(You better believe that as I was making my way out of the Dolby Theater and strolled past the large Oscar statue, I gave that golden booty a little coup tap – Count: one).”

Emma Stone, who starred in “Poor Things,” received the lead actress prize, while Gladstone came in second.

The actor from “Killers of the Flower Moon” became the first person of Native American descent to receive an Academy Award nomination; his lineage includes both Blackfeet and Nez Perce.

In the Martin Scorsese picture, she played the role of Mollie Burkhart to perfection. The plot revolves around the Oklahoma oil-rich Osage Nation and the real-life planned killings of its members in the early 20th century.

Gladstone praised Sunday’s performance of Scott George and the Osage Singers’ Oscar-nominated song “Wahzhazhe (A Song for My People),” in an early Tuesday morning follow-up post on X.

She commented, “My inner voice said ‘They’re the ones bringing us all up on stage tonight, that’s how it should be.'” while witnessing the Osage Singers at the Oscars. The Osage Nation has full ownership of the historical events shown in the film and the present. Being able to touch the drum with my bare hands is such a privilege.

Throughout this award season, Gladstone has put the Osage Nation at the center and recognized them. He won historic prizes at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Golden Globes.

In January, she mentioned on “Good Morning America” that she intentionally went to the Osage reserve to witness the Oscar nominations. During her FaceTime conversation with her parents, she found out that she had won the historic nod.

Stone acknowledged Gladstone by name in her heartfelt award speech on Sunday night.

She turned to the actor from “Killers of the Flower Moon” and said, “Lily, I share this with you.” “You amaze me. Additionally, working on this project with you has been a privilege.
