This past Sunday night, the award season was kicked off with the Golden Globe Awards, celebrating T.V. and Cinema together. Every year at the Golden Globes, one person is honored with Cecil B. Demille Award and recognized for their achievements in film and/or television. On Sunday night, the 2014 honoree was Woody Allen, whose talents in writing, directing, and acting in over 70 films has made him the most in-demand and respected director in Hollywood. However, like in his past, Allen’s award was overshadowed by personal scandal. His estranged son, Ronan Farrow, went on to remind everyone of Allen’s past with this 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 was referring to his adopted sibling, Dylan, who at the age of 7, publicly spoke out about Allen’s sexual abuse towards her in 1992. Dylan has now changed her name, however, has spoken out and retold her story as a grown woman and till this day has said she is “afraid of Allen and his image.”
Mia Farrow and Woody Allen had a 12 year relationship and together had adopted many children and had their son Ronan, who has been suspected to actually being the son of Frank Sinatra and not Allen. Farrow left Allen in 1992 after it was brought to light his affair with her then 18 year old adoptive daughter from a previous marriage, Soon-Yi Previn. This detail along with the alleged child molestation, led Farrow and Allen to a dramatic court battle and a public feud that obviously still is going on today.
Now that the media storm is brewing, Allen has yet respond to Ronan Farrow’s tweet. However, with a hieghtened interest by the public, more and more news sites have been republishing the 1992 scandals and overshadowing his big Golden Globe honor to an even more extent.
