Happy Birthday Woody Allen!

A legendary and controversial filmmaker Woody Allen has turned 80. 24 nominations for the Academy Awards winning four times. Cinema history recognizes him by classics such as Annie Hall and Manhattan from the 1970s and Midnight in Paris and Blue Jasmine.



Among his featured performers were Diane Keaton and Mia Farrow, both of whom he was romantically involved with. Allen made tabloid headlines in 1992 by dating and eventually marrying then-girlfriend Mia Farrow's adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.

“I fell in love with this girl, married her ... but people refer to it all the time as a scandal, and I kind of like that in a way because when I go I would like to say I had one real juicy scandal in my life.”
— Woody Allen
