Mia Farrow and her son have criticised the Golden Globe Awards' tribute to Woody Allen.

The 78-year-old filmmaker wasn't at the ceremony last night (12.01.14) to pick up the Cecil B. DeMille Award, with his 'Annie Hall' actress Diane Keaton collecting it on his behalf with a lengthy speech in praise of the director.

However, his former partner Mia - who accused Woody of molesting their adopted daughter Dylan, then seven, in 1992, allegations which were not upheld - made it clear she didn't plan to watch.

The 'Rosemary's Baby actress' - who recently claimed her son Ronan could have been fathered by Frank Sinatra, not Allen as was previously believed - tweeted: ''Time to grab some ice cream & switch over to #GIRLS (sic).''

And 25-year-old Ronan tweeted: ''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? (sic)''

Mia and Ronan both then re-tweeted a Vanity Fair article which included Dylan talking about her famous father.

During the tribute, Diane - dressed in the writer-and-director's trademark suit and thick black glasses - praised him for the work he has done with female stars.

She said: ''It's kinda hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that 179 of the world's most captivating actresses have appeared in Woody's films and there's a reason for this. The reason is they wanted to. They wanted to because Woody's women can't be compartmentalised, right? I mean, they struggle, they love, they fall apart, they dominate, they're funny, they're flawed. They are, in fact, the hallmark of Woody's work. But what's even more remarkable is that absolutely nothing links these unforgettable characters from the fact that they came from the mind of Woody Allen. And there you have it.''

Her speech ended with a string of expletives which were bleeped out from broadcast, and a Girl Scout song.

She sang: ''Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold. A circle is round, it has no end. That's how long you're going to be my friend.''

Allen has denied any allegations of abuse for decades and a judge found that the sex abuse charges were inconclusive.
