Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone Conquer Cannes With 9-Minute Standing Ovation for ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’

May 22, 2023

On Saturday night, Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” premiered to the biggest standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival so far. DiCaprio was Oscar-nominated for Scorsese’s “The Aviator” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.”Scorsese worked closely with the Osage Nation during the production of “Flower Moon,” with Osage Nation chief Geoffrey Standing Bear serving as a consultant. Gladstone told Variety the Osage Nation played a huge role in shaping the movie from Scorsese’s original plan. “That was very refreshing how involved the production got with the [Osage Nation] community. “Killers of the Flower Moon” screened out of competition at Cannes, so it will not be eligible for the Palme d’Or, the festival’s highest prize.
