Yesterday, before the broadcast of the Golden Globes, Kevin Costner posted a video on his Twitter explaining he was unable to attend the award show because he was stuck at his home in Santa Barbara due to the recent rain storms and flooding seen all up and down the Central Coast. Costner's nomination this year was the first and only Golden Globe nomination for the incredibly popular show, Yellowstone.
The US-101 freeway was shutdown in both north and south directions going in and out of Santa Barbara. As Costner notes in the video, this is the second time in five years this has happened to the residents in the coastal Santa Barbara County communities. Crews had reopened the roads earlier today, but all eyes are on another storm coming this weekend!
Take a look at Costner's video message below.
Costner would go on that evening to win "Best Performance by Actor in Television Series (Drama)." He would take to Twitter again thanking his fans and cast and crew. Another member of the cast, Cole Hauser, who plays "Rip" in the show, was born in Santa Barbara, however currently lives in Los Angeles.
