In the video (see above), Costner revealed that he was unable to attend the Golden Globes due to flooding in California. “We felt so horrible about that, and there was just nothing we could do,” he said.
Costner was bummed because he “wanted to be there,” but he knew the odds were stacked against him. So, his wife went to the store and bought balloons to decorate the house, and they watched the awards show at home with their children. He continued, “We found ourselves together as a family and my children heard my name called, and they stood up and they cheered.”
Costner also shared his gratitude for receiving the award, adding, “It feels really good to have this. There’s no substitute for being there, but my wife made a night of it for us…I’m so glad I found the movies in my life. I don’t know what would’ve happened to me if I hadn’t found the movies.”
