Actor Kevin Costner managed a new career milestone this week despite having been in the entertainment business for decades, and it is all thanks to his hit series, “Yellowstone.”

The show, now in its fifth season, often mocks coastal liberals, as it is set in Montana, hardly an urban environment. So it is no wonder the coastal liberals who run the entertainment industry have regularly snubbed the show when it comes to awards time.

But that has changed. Yellowstone has scored record ratings after returning this year and has now received its first-ever Golden Globes nomination, with Costner nominated for the category of “Lead Actor in a Dramatic Series.” Still, the show was shut out of the “Best Drama” series, with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association voters picking Netflix’s The Crown, Apple TV+’s Severance, AMC’s Better Call Saul, HBO’s House of the Dragon, and Netflix’s Ozark instead.

For his part, Costner snagged a Golden Globe in 2013 for his epic western series “Hatfields and McCoys.”

Here is the full nomination list for the category:

Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama 

Jeff Bridges, The Old Man

Kevin Costner, Yellowstone

Diego Luna, Andor

Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul

Adam Scott, Severance

Yellowstone is so successful that it is actually generating spin-off series’ that are becoming just as successful. The first, “1883,” tracked the beginning of the lineage of the Dutton family and starred country music legends Tim McGraw and real-life wife Faith Hill. The next installment in the spin-off series, “1923,” stars award-winning actors Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren, and traces the family’s roots to the beginning of the Dutton dynasty.

According to Paramount, the latest installment in the Western franchise is set to “explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west.” 1923 also stars Darren Mann, Michelle Randolph, James Badge Dale, Marley Shelton, Brian Geraghty, Aminah Nieves, and Jerome Flynn.
