Lily Gladstone Has A ‘Saturday Night Live’ Hosting Dream

“That’s been probably a dream that I’ve held on my own,” Gladstone said. “It’s like my parents — and I think it’s just what people say when you have an aspiration to act, and they want to encourage you as a kid — it’s like, ‘Oh, you’ll get an Oscar one day.’ So it almost just becomes a platitude. But the thing that I’ve always wanted to do if I’ve had this moment is to host SNL.”

Gladstone is nominated for her work in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon.

The 96th Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live on Sunday, March 10, from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
