Mia Farrow & Son Slam Woody Allen Golden Globe

Woody Allen's former girlfriend Mia Farrow and their son Ronan have criticised the lifetime achievement award he was given at the Golden Globes.

When the director's tribute began to start, the actress, who had been tweeting throughout the show, stopped and said on the microblogging site: "Time to grab some ice cream & switch over to #GIRLS."

The former couple's son Ronan was more explicit, saying on Twitter: "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?"

His message was believed to be referring to Allen and Farrow's adopted daughter Dylan.

There were allegations in 1992 that Allen inappropriately touched her as a seven-year-old.

The court case was eventually dropped and Allen's spokesman denied the allegations.

Farrow also retweeted her son's message and they both retweetedmessages that referred to a Vanity Fair article in which Dylan stood by the allegations.

"I'm scared of him (Allen), his image," she told a journalist.

"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."

Farrow and Allen had a 12-year relationship but split in 1992, when she discovered he was having an affair with Farrow's adopted daughter from another marriage, Soon-Yi Previn, now Allen's wife.

Allen was not at the Golden Globes to collect his prize and it was left to former girlfriend and co-star Diane Keaton to accept it on his behalf.

"Woody's films have been changing the way we think about life, love and the pursuit of neuroses forever," she said, adding Allen's female stars "can't be compartmentalised".

Last year, Farrow suggested that Frank Sinatra, not Allen, may actually be Ronan's father.
