Patti Smith Honors Killers of the Flower Moon’s Lily Gladstone at National Board of Review Gala

The National Board of Review Gala took place this past Thursday night in New York City, and Patti Smith was there to present Lily Gladstone with the Best Actress award for her role in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. It marked the singer’s first public appearance this year since being hospitalized due to “a sudden illness” in Italy last month.

“There’s a lotta you here. It’s a lot easier playing Madison Square Garden. But I’m very excited to be here,” joked Smith, before contextualizing the “abysmal shard of American history” that takes place in the film and Gladstone’s standout performance. “What is more piercing than the face of Lily Gladstone, as the camera captures the shifting tones of her interior process, seamlessly embodying the courageous Mollie Burkhart. Whether off or on screen, like the new moon, she could be felt if not seen.”
