The Martin Scorsese-directed movie is also nominated in the category of best picture at this year’s Oscars.

    Gladstone is close to making history at this year’s Academy Awards as the first native american actress to ever get this honor. The ‘First Cow’ star recently had a chat with PEOPLE for their annual Oscar portfolio in which shared a specific dream of hers. 

    The actress told the magazine about her dream of hosting Saturday Night Live. Gladstone confessed, “That’s been probably a dream that I’ve held on my own.” In regards to her Academy nomination the ‘Certain Women’ star continued, “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,” she concluded. Well given the godspeed rail of success, she’s riding, this dream of hers is not very unattainable.
