Missed the Woody Allen [1] tribute - did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?

Woody Allen was honored at this year's Golden Globe Awards for his lifetime work. Diane Keaton [3], one of his original muses, accepted the Cecil [4] B. DeMille Award on behalf of the director with a heartfelt speech that ended with her singing the classic Girl Scout song "Make New Friends, but Keep the Old." Yet at least one person was not in a friendly mood: Ronan Farrow, Woody Allen's son with his ex-partner Mia Farrow. Sunday night, Ronan tweeted out a serious message about Allen's alleged abuse, which was recently reported on again in a Vanity Fair article [5]. In the piece, Woody's adopted daughter Dylan says: "I was cracking. I had to say something. I was seven. I was doing it because I was scared. I wanted it to stop."

It's not the first time Ronan has criticized Woody on social media. Back in 2012, he also tweeted about his family circumstances on Father's Day [6], taking a swipe at Woody for getting together with Ronan's adopted sister Soon-Yi Previn. Plus, last year rumors swirled that Frank Sinatra was Ronan's real father [7]. Either way, it seems like there's no hope for a reconciliation between Woody and Ronan.

Mia Farrow also weighed in when the Woody tribute came on.
