Oprah Winfrey's property is just a mess.

The Golden Globes' Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient showed off the damage to her 65-acre estate from the deadly Montecito mudslides that ravaged her and Ellen DeGeneres' neighborhood in Santa Barbara County, California.

Ellen got emotional on Thursday's broadcast as she shared photos of her beloved community (dubbed "The Promised Land") after being struck by Tuesday's catastrophic mudslides that have claimed the lives of 17 people.

Revealing there are still families missing from the "tight-knit" neighborhood, the daytime host made sure to note the community is "filled with a lot of different types of people from all backgrounds" who aren't all wealthy A-listers.

But even the area's celeb residents were hit badly: Ellen and wife Portia de Rossi were forced to evacuate from their home while Oprah's property was flooded with mud.

Though when she FaceTimed with Ellen to share the "devastating" damage with the audience, Big O made it clear that her neighbors suffered much worse, revealing all the homes down the hill from her estate were "gutted."

And after speaking about the damage with Ventura City County firefighters, the Wrinkle In Time star ended with an uplifting message about how to move forward from the natural disaster. (Do we smell a mayoral campaign announcement in the future?)

Our hearts go out to all those in Montecito. Check out the clips (below):

Oprah Shows 'Devastating' Mudslide Damage At Montecito Property — WATCH

How devastating.

In case you haven't heard, Montecito, California and other parts of Southern California are in crisis after mudslides, caused by heavy rainfall, occurred this week. As you know, these same areas were recently hit by wildfires, which left the burnt ground unable to absorb as much water.

So far, at least 15 people have died while others are missing and hundreds await rescue after being trapped by debris in Montecito's Romero Canyon area.

On Wednesday, Oprah Winfrey gave her followers a tour of the damage on her estate via Instagram. You can see the TV queen knee-deep in mud as she walks around surveying the property with helicopters flying overhead looking for people to rescue.

On the same day Time's Up advocate Oprah Winfrey received a standing ovation at the Golden Globes, Memphis pastor Andy Savage (pictured above) got one too… but for very different reasons.

On Sunday, the minister confessed to the congregation at Highpoint Church in Tennessee that he was involved in a "sexual incident" with then-17-year-old Jules Woodson more than two decades ago.

Savage recalls:

"As a college student on staff at a church in Texas more than 20 years ago, I regretfully had a sexual incident with a female high school senior in the church."

His request for forgiveness received a standing ovation from the audience.

Last week, Woodson opened up about her assault in the Christian blog Watch Keep where she says the incident happened when Savage was driving her back home from church.

Instead, the pastor drove into a deserted back road, reached a dead end, and "unzipped his jeans and pulled out his penis." The victim recalls:

No one ever really thought Oprah Winfrey would be president before her incredibly inspirational words at the Golden Globes… or did they?

The classic Cartoon Network series The Boondocks actually put forth the notion of an Oprah presidency all the way back in 2006!

In a brilliant episode called Return Of The King, the show imagined a world in which Martin Luther King, Jr. had never been assassinated.

It ended on the particularly hopeful note of an historic newspaper headline:

After Oprah Winfrey's inspirational speech at the Golden Globes, many are calling for her to run for president in 2020!

Eventually someone had to ask Donald Trump what he thought of her potential, though perhaps unlikely, run.

His answer was, as you might expect, self-aggrandizing and delusional. Shocker.
