It was an award that Woody Allen arguably didn't even want.
Allen did not show up to accept his lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes in January.
However, the award did reignite the director's estranged family's ire over allegations that Allen sexually abused his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, when she was a child.
"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?" Allen's son, Ronan Farrow tweeted after the award was presented. A firestorm ensued.
This month, Dylan Farrow wrote an open letter in the New York Times. She opens up about the molestation she says she suffered at the hands of her father. She also directly called out some celebrities for "turning a blind eye” and continuing to work with her estranged father.
Allen has denied any abuse and claims that the allegations were created by his ex, Mia Farrow, after she discovered that Allen had a sexual relationship with Farrow's adopted daughter, Soon Yi.
The Farrow-Allen family tree is not a small one. Farrow has 15 adopted and biological children.
Here is the breakdown:
1966 - Mia Farrow marries Frank Sinatra.
1968 - Farrow and Sinatra divorce. They did not have any children.
1970 - Farrow marries Andre Previn. The couple's twins Matthew and Sascha are born.
1974 - Farrow and Previn have a third child, Fletcher. While married, they also adopt Summer Song, Lark, and Soon Yi.
1979 - Farrow and Previn divorce.
1980 - Farrow and Allen begin dating.
1987 - Farrow gives birth to Allen's son, Ronan. (Although, Farrow has admitted since then that there is a possibility that Sinatra could be Ronan's father.) During their time together, Farrow adopts Moses and Dylan Farrow.
1992 - Farrow and Allen separate once she discovers he was having an affair with Soon Yi. Later that year, Allen sues Farrow for custody of their children. Farrow accuses Allen of molesting their daughter, Dylan.
1993 - A child-abuse specialist testifies that he does not believe Dylan was molested and no charges are brought against Allen. The same year, a judge denies Allen custody of his children, according to the New York Times. As a single mother, Farrow adopts six more children, according to IMDB.
2000 - Tam Farrow, one of Mia Farrow's adopted daughters, dies of heart complications.
2008 - Lark Farrow dies from "undisclosed circumstances," according to Biography.com.
2013 - Mia Farrow and eight of her children, including Dylan, talk to "Vanity Fair" about the scandal.
January 2014 - Ronan Farrow tweets "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?"
February 2014 - Dylan Farrow writes an open letter in the New York Times once again accusing her father of molesting her. Allen's lawyer releases a statement denying the allegations and indirectly blaming Mia Farrow.
Moses Farrow tells "People" that his father did not molest Dylan and that it was a lie "drummed" into him by Mia Farrow. Ronan and Mia Farrow both tweet in support of Dylan's open letter.
Woody Allen, in an op-ed released Friday by the New York Times, denied Dylan Farrow's allegations and blamed Mia Farrow's malevolence over their breakup for his adopted daughter's allegations. "Of course, I did not molest Dylan. I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter's well-being."
