Cherokee Wes Studi first Native American to receive Oscar with Lifetime Achievement Award


Well deserved. A great actor and iconic screen presence.

Great in Westerns, well-cast as cops, etc. in any tale set in the Desert Southwest or “The Nations,” criminally under-used in other films.

I interviewed him when “Last of the Mohicans” and “Geronimo” came out, and found him cool, regal and funny.

Give this man an honorary Oscar and send him to film festivals for his VICTORY lap.
