There were some people who weren't so jazzed about Woody Allen receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes on Sunday night—especially his ex-partner Mia Farrow and son Ronan Farrow.

Diane Keaton, Allen's longtime friend and his Annie Hall star, accepted the award on the director's behalf. (Apparently, Allen wasn't on hand to accept the award, but looks like he's still playing with his jazz band tonight in New York. Priorities, priorities.) She presented a speech about Allen's four decades in filmmaking and how "179 of the world's most captivating actresses have appeared in Woody Allen's films," she said.

But his estranged biological son, 26-year-old Farrow (who Mia recently came out saying could actually be the love-child of Frank Sinatra), wanted the clear the air about molestation allegations from his sister with this tweet:

Farrow is referencing how over 20 years ago, his sister, Dylan, who was 7 at the time, claimed Allen had touched her inappropriately back in Aug. 1992, according to Vanity Fair. Allen was never convicted and to this day vehemently denies the allegations, the Washington Post reported.

Farrow's mother, Mia, who had a 13-year relationship with Allen, has 14 children, many of whom she adopted. However, in the early 1990s, she was shocked to find pornographic photographs of her adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, who was in college at that time, in Allen's apartment. And Allen later left Farrow to marry his adopted daughter Soon-Yi.

Mia also has taken to Twitter to talk about Allen molesting her daughter:
