article imageGolden Globes 2014: Mia and Ronan Farrow rip Woody Allen tribute

If the Golden Globes Awards had an award category for best tweet during its Sunday night's telecast, no doubt the honor would go to mother and son, Mia and Ronan Farrow, for their blistering comments on Woody Allen.
It all started when it came time for the show to honor comedian, writer, actor, and director Woody Allen with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award. The award is given to those who have made outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.
"In a career spanning more than 60 years, there have been 73 movies, which he has written and most of which he directed, as well as plays, books and short stories. Among his numerous awards, he has been nominated 12 times for Golden Globe Awards and has won 4 times. He has more Academy Award screenwriting nominations than anyone else," according to the Golden Globes website.
Farrow — whose volatile relationship with Allen made headlines from 1980 until 1992 — decided she had better things to do.
"Time to grab some ice cream & switch over to 'Girls'" on HBO, she tweeted. "Nite all."
In 1992, Farrow discovered that Allen was having a sexual relationship with her adopted daughter from a previous marriage Soon-Yi Previn, now Allen's wife. He married her in 1997.
Allen, who did not attend the Golden Globes ceremony to accept his award, instead opted to have Annie Hall star Diane Keaton accept the award on his behalf.
Farrow's son, future MSNBC host Ronan Farrow, the estranged son of Allen, was unimpressed with the award presentation. Picking up where his mother left off, he tweeted:
“Did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?”
Ronan is speaking of his sister, Dylan, who was adopted by Allen and Farrow. In a recent Vanity Fair piece, Dylan, now 28, describes the effect Allen's actions had on her.
“I’m scared of him, his image," she said. "Nobody wants to think this legendary filmmaker is my worst nightmare."
Woody Allen’s lawyer Elkan Abramowitz, however, told Vanity Fair that Allen still denies the allegations of sexual abuse.
