Woody Allen will receive an honorary award at the Academy Awards in 2014 for his body of work, but that announcement came with controversy. After the Oscars made the announcement by his daughter Dylan Farrow who accused him of molesting her as a child. According to TMZ on Feb. 2, Woody Allen finally answered the accusations as his rep announced that the claims are “untrue and disgraceful.”

The claims raise a lot of questions.

Dylan Farrow said that she was abused by Allen when she was seven years old, and actually claimed he took her into the attic and forced her head into his crotch. One of 15 of Mia Farrow’s children, and one of 11 who were adopted, the abuse allegedly took place 21 years ago and she claimed that people ignored her claims at the time.

She addressed some people in her letter, including Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Emma Stone and Scarlett Johannson, asking them how they would feel if it happened to them or their children. This is the first time she has written anything considering these accusations.

Accusations of abuse arose in 1992 and Mia Farrow divorced Woody Allen. Five years later, Allen married another of Farrow’s adopted children, Soon-Yi Previn, who is 15 years older than Dylan Farrow.

Sony Classics, the studio who distributes many of Allen’s films said it is a difficult situation, but Allen has never been charged for anything and remains innocent until proven guilty. Woody Allen himself has called it disgraceful accusations and said he will comment very soon.
