Lily Gladstone, the rising star who earned an Oscar nomination for her role in Killers of the Flower Moon, is setting her sights on a new challenge: hosting Saturday Night Live.

In a recent interview with People magazine, Gladstone revealed a surprising aspiration alongside her flourishing acting career.

"That's been probably a dream that I've held on my own," she said about hosting the iconic late-night sketch show. "[It's] almost just become a platitude," Gladstone continued, comparing it to childhood dreams of winning an Oscar. "But the thing I've always wanted to do if I've had this moment is to host SNL."

This news comes after Gladstone's breakout performance in Martin Scorsese's historical drama. Her portrayal of Mollie in the film garnered critical acclaim and solidified her place as a talent to watch. However, it seems her ambitions extend beyond the silver screen.

The late-night sketch comedy series, created by Lorne Michaels, has featured celebrity hosts alongside its award-winning cast for over four decades. Gladstone is excited about her chance to host.

This award season, the actress has been making waves with her portrayal as Mollie Burkhart in Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio.

Gladstone (Blackfeet/Nimiipuu) received a Best Actress nomination, making her the first Native American actor to receive an Oscar nomination.
