Ronan Farrow had a huge problem with Sunday night's tribute to Woody Allen at the Golden Globe Awards, and the soon-to-be MSNBC host had no problem publicly voicing his opinion.

As 2014's Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient, Allen was honored with a montage of his most notable work, including "Manhattan," "Midnight in Paris," and "Annie Hall." But there's one thing in the director's past that was not included in the homage, according to his son Farrow.

The accusations against Allen are nothing new. The filmmaker split with longtime partner Mia Farrow, with whom he fathered son Ronan in 1987 (or did he?), in 1992 after the actress discovered he was having an affair with her 22-year-old adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.

In the custody battle that followed, Farrow accused Allen of molesting Ronan's other adopted sister Dylan, who was 7 years old at the time, but no charges were ever filed. Dylan spoke about the abuse in an Oct. 2013 interview in Vanity Fair.

"There's a lot I don't remember, but what happened in the attic I remember," Dylan told special correspondent Maureen Orth. "The things making me uncomfortable were making me think I was a bad kid, because I didn't want to do what my elder told me to do."

Mia Farrow also posted a not-so-subtle tweet Sunday night right before the Allen tribute.

Ronan Farrow is a Bard College and Yale Law School graduate and a Rhodes Scholar who is scheduled to kick off his own daily news program on MSNBC in the coming weeks, according to the New York Times.
