The Golden Globes were all drunken fun and games last night, but in one celebrity household, shit got serious.
Mia Farrow was watching the Globes, and commenting via twitter. But when actress, Diane Keaton took the stage to accept the Cecil B. DeMille Award, on behalf of director Woody Allen, she was done.
Time to grab some icecream & switch over to #GIRLS

Oh. Mia was famously together with Woody throughout the 80’s, starred in his movies, adopted and had children with him, until he began an affair with one of her adopted kids, Soon Yi Previn, whom Woody eventually married. Uglier still, Mia accused Woody of molesting their adopted 7 year old daughter, Dylan. The abuse came out in court, but the director was never convicted of a crime. In a November Vanity Fair profile, Dylan, now an adult and going by a different first name, corroborates the abuse. Which is why Ronan Farrow, Woody’s only son, and completely estranged since the ugly incident, let loose with a scathing tweet.
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 Farrow (@RonanFarrow) January 13, 2014
Whoa. In the Vanity Fair piece, which is worth a read, Mia also hints that Ronan could actually be Frank Sinatra’s son (!!!). Ronan retreated a couple of tweets that backed up his sentiment:
As far as I’m concerned, @RonanFarrow is standing up for all sexual abuse survivors tonight. Thank you.

Diane Keaton gave a lovely speech on behalf of her friend (though it might have been cool to pick up the damn trophy up himself), which highlighted many of Woody’s amazing contributions to the world of cinema. But. Ugh. I just can’t with this. I can’t. It’s been difficult for me, in the past 20 years, to remain a fan of his work.
