Woody Allen's Golden Globes tribute sparks slams from Mia, RonanFarrow
The Golden Globes honored director-writer-actor Woody Allen with the Cecil B. DeMille Award during Sunday night's big bash. But while his friend and sometimes-leading-lady Diane Keaton offered up high praise — and a little song — for Allen as she accepted on his behalf, his ex and his son had no praise at all to offer on Twitter.

As soon as the segment kicked off, Mia Farrow, who'd been tweeting about the night's non-Allen-related events earlier, made her feelings about it clear — and she did it without ever mentioning his name.
But Farrow and Allen's son, Ronan, didn't bother to carefully couch his comments in a similar way. He came right out and said just what was on his mind.
Ronan's message was in reference to allegations of sexual abuse made by his sister, Farrow and Allen's daughter, Dylan. Both he and his mother retweeted messages from others pointing to a Vanity Fair article that featured those allegations.
In 1994, a New York State appeals court judge ruling on custody of Farrow and Allen's children determined the sexual abuse claims were inconclusive.
Allen and Farrow never married, but were a couple from 1980 to 1992. They split after he began a relationship with her adopted daughter, now his wife, Soon-Yi Previn.
