Woody Allen was honored during Sunday night’s Golden Globes, with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award, with Diane Keaton and Emma Stone paying tribute to the absent filmmaker.
And while Woody – who skipped the Globes in favor of the opening of the new Broadway show “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical” in New York City — was lauded inside the Beverly Hilton ballroom by Hollywood’s biggest stars, not everyone was interested in celebrating Woody’s iconic career.
“Time to grab some icecream & switch over to #GIRLS,” Tweeted Mia Farrow, who dated Woody from 1980 – 1992 until she discovered he was having a relationship with her adopted daughter Soon-Yi, whom he later married in 1997.
It was an abrupt social media exit for the actress, who had been live Tweeting during Sunday night’s award show, cheering on many of the night’s big winners with posts like “YES!! Michael Douglas” and “Yay Spike Jonze.”
On Monday morning, Mia returned to Twitter with some additional comments on the tribute.
“A woman has publicly detailed Woody Allen’s molestation of her at age 7. GoldenGlobe tribute showed contempt for her & all abuse survivors,” she posted on Monday morning.
“Is he a pedophile? Read this VanityFair article and make up your own mind,” Mia added, with a link to a Vanity Fair feature from October 2013, in which her adopted daughter Dylan claimed to be a victim of alleged sexual abuse by Woody when she was 7 years old – claims which Woody has previously denied.
Mia’s son – Ronan Farrow – also took to Twitter on Sunday night with his own social media jab at the Hollywood legend.
“Missed the Woody Allen tribute – did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?” Ronan wrote on his Twitter page, a post re-Tweeted more than 10,000 times, including once by Mia.
As for the tribute itself, Emma Stone – who stars in the writer/director’s upcoming film “Magic In The Moonlight” – took to the stage to kick off the presentation, with fond words for Woody.
“The experience of working on that film with Woody changed my life and that is no surprise. Woody’s work has been changing the way we think about life, love and the pursuit of neuroses for decades,” Emma told the audience.
Diane Keaton later capped the tribute with some praise – and a performance of the Girl Scouts song “Make New Friends,” dedicated to Woody.
