Every Award show has the coveted award of the night where that one particular award is one such that noms and winners can look at it [or up to it] as inspiration aspire to achieve receiving the honor of owning “THAT” award someday, because typically, being a nom or winner-you’re not too far from achieving it.
Well, the Cecil B. DeMille Award is Golden Globe’s version and it went to Tinsel Town’s icon: Woody Allen.
Woody was a no-show.
Unlike a nom or winner, winners of these coveted awards already know in advance that they are receiving the honor
Often times, if the winner doesn’t RSVP, the accept via satellite however, after the the long drawn out introduction and teleplays of the recipients work and achievement are played across the screen; the live and television viewing audience are eagerly awaiting to arrive to the stage; the happy recipient.
Well, in Woody’s case, the award was accepted by another Hollywood icon: Diane Keaton, who too, stunned the audience with a “F” bomb and “musically” laden speech before presenting: “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, the other is gold. A circle is round, it has no end. That’s how long I will be your friend.”
Keaton stated: “I think it’s safe to say that Woody Allen is an anomaly,” she said. “He’s made 74 movies in 48 years. He’s directed them, he’s starred in them, he’s produced them and of course, he’s written them. He’s written all of them, every one.”
In celebration of the iconic females characters Woody Allen has created, she expressed: “The feature, for me anyway, that sets Woody’s writing apart are the voices of four decades of unforgettable female characters. 179 of the world’s most captivating actresses have appeared in Woody’s films. And the reason is that they wanted to. Woody’s women can’t be compartmentalized… They’re the hallmark of Woody’s work.”
Ok, so as if that wasn’t awkward moment enough, just look to this next story as that undying loyalty boys have for their moms-at all cost, expense, and well, in this case: expression.
Winning the award was hardly coveted by Mia Farrow and her son, rising MSNBN host Ronan Farrow. Both took to the Twittersphere in an open diss at at Woody during his coveted Cecil B. Demille Lifetime Achievement Award.

Just before the segment/coveted award was presented, Mia expressed that she was turning away to watch HBO’s “Girls” rather than watch the glowing tribute to her ex-husband, who famously cheated on her with their legally adopted daughter, Soon Yi Previn, whom he eventually married.
Ronan took to Twitter and posted:
Momma Mia retweeted her good boy:
…And then retweeted a little more information for us:
FYI however. It’s been widely known (in the industry), for years, that Woody Allen doesn’t like (to attend) awards shows and has probably only attended one.
