Drew Barrymore Almost Missed the Golden Globes for a Very Good Reason

Drew Barrymore and actor Timothy Olyphant presented the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Comedy to black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross at the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night. But Barrymore almost didn't make it to the event.

During an interview on the red carpet with E! News, the actor told Ryan Seacrest she made it to Los Angeles from her New York home just in time to start getting ready for the big event.

"I was in New York in the snowstorm last night 'cause I wanted to maximize time with my children," Barrymore said referring to her daughters Olive, four, and Frankie, two.

"I have a job to do but I chose to be a parent first and I swear to God the priorities paid off, my karma—we got on the plane and JetBlue got me right here. And it was all good. And I played in the snow with my kids all day!"

Barrymore looked so incredible in her Monique Lhuillier, Art Deco style, cold-shoulder gown, it was hard to believe she was pressed for time.

Though the $2.5 million worth of Harry Winston jewels she was wearing probably helped.

Barrymore, who earned a Golden Globe for her work in HBO's Grey Gardens in 2009, walked the carpet to promote her upcoming Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet, which co-stars her presenting partner Olyphant, and premieres next month.

"It's a really good show for 2017," she told Seacrest. "It's got bite, it's funny...I need light right now, but I need something with bite."

Judging from the preview, Santa Clarita Diet looks like it definitely fits the bill.
