BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The Golden Globes honored Woody Allen on Sunday — minus Woody Allen.He won a lifetime achievement award for more than four decades of writing, producing and directing films. He didn't attend Globes on Sunday, however, and actress Diane Keaton accepted it on his behalf. Keaton played the starring role in "Annie Hall," one of Allen's best known movies.

Keaton noted that women loved to be cast in Allen's movies, because "Woody's women can't be compartmentalized."

Rather than live on in the hearts of his fellow man, Keaton said Allen once said that "I would rather live in my apartment."

"Woody's films have been changing the way we think about life, love and the pursuit of neuroses forever," she said.

One Golden Globes viewer, actress Mia Farrow, was unimpressed. Farrow and Allen had a 12-year relationship but split in 1992, when she discovered the director was having an affair with her adopted daughter from another marriage, Soon-Yi Previn, now Allen's wife.

When the Allen tribute began, Farrow tweeted: "Time to grab some ice cream & switch over to 'Girls'" on HBO.
