Ronan, Mia Farrow blast Woody Allen’s lifetime achievement award

- The Washington Times - Monday, January 13, 2014

The Golden Globes honored Woody Allen with the Cecil B. Demille lifetime achievement award Sunday night, but the recognition didn't go over well with two people from the director's past.

"Missed the Woody Allen tribute," tweeted Ronan Farrow, "did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?"

Mr. Farrow — the son of Mr. Allen and actress Mia Farrow, who previously worked as an Obama administration foreign policy official — is slated to host a weekday program on MSNBC early this year.

His mother also took to Twitter to express her disapproval with the award.

"A woman has publicly detailed Woody Allen's molestation of her at age 7. GoldenGlobe tribute showed contempt for her & all abuse survivors," Miss Farrow wrote.

In 1992, the actress' daughter Dylan claimed Mr. Allen had molested her. The resulting court case was eventually dropped, but she stood by the allegations in a Vanity Fair article published last year, Fox News reported.

"I'm scared of (Allen), his image," she said in the interview, "I have never been asked to testify. If I could talk to the seven-year-old Dylan, I would tell her to be brave, to testify."
