Her Moving Acceptance Speech

Lily teared up as they began her moving acceptance speech in her native Blackfoot language before saying: ‘My friends, fellow actors, I feel the good in what you have done — what you do.

‘This has been a hard year for all of us. Those in this room, those not in this room, I’m so proud that we have gotten here in solidarity with all of our other unions.’

The talented actress went on to stress the importance of ‘visibility’ and speaking one’s truths.

They said: ‘It’s truly a gift that we get to do this for a living. That’s the win. It was getting to be here, it was getting to be on set. It was getting to tell stories.

‘It’s so easy to distance ourselves. It’s so easy to close off, to stop feeling, and we all bravely keep feeling, and that humanizes people. That brings people out of the shadows; it brings visibility.’

The star concluded the speech with an empowering message while stressing the importance of storytelling.

Lily concluded: ‘Keep telling stories to everybody in this room, to everybody watching abroad. Those of you who are not actors but have a voice, have a story that needs to be heard.

‘Thank you for all of the compassionate souls in this room and all of the storytellers here tonight. Keep speaking your truths, and keep speaking up for each other.’
