Yellowstone’s Kevin Costner skips Golden Globes as he flees ‘wrong side of town’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
The 67-year-old star was nominated for best actor in a drama series at the awards ceremony, shared a Twitter video and explained that he and his wife Christine Baumgartner would be absent from the show. The Yellowstone actor spoke on the flooding from ongoing rainstorms in Los Angeles County that had forced celebrities in the area to flee their homes.
“Hi everyone. Look, I’m so sorry for everyone who might have been tuning in to watch the Golden Globes — Chris and I aren’t going to be there,” Kevin said.
The video was posted shortly on Instagram before the Golden Globes aired.
“Yesterday we had to pull the kids out of school in Santa Barbara,” the actor continued.
“This is the second time in five years that the freeway has flooded out, we found ourselves on the wrong side of the town and we couldn’t get back last night.”

The coastal community of Montecito in Santa Barbara County, home to celebrities including Prince Harry, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey, was ordered to evacuate on Monday.
Kevin, who plays family patriarch John Dutton in the hit Paramount+ series, beat out Jeff Bridges (The Old Man), Diego Luna (Andor), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) and Adam Scott (Severance) for the Best Actor award.
It was the only category for which Yellowstone received a nomination and also the show’s first Golden Globe nod after five seasons since beginning its run in 2018.
Kevin has been nominated for seven Golden Globes over his decades-long career.
