The reemergence of abuse allegations against Woody Allen by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has all of Hollywood talking.
The now 28-year-old claims that her father molested her when she was 7-years-old and explains she is opening up about her ordeal 21 years later "only so others know that they don't have to be silent either."
Farrow's letter detailing her abuse came less than a month after Allen was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award during the Golden Globes and a week after he received his 19th Oscar nomination.
Now, Farrow writes that she refuses to let his acceptance silence her. "It felt like...the awards and accolades were a way to tell me to shut up and go away," she says of her father's many admirers.
Many wonder whether the resurfacing allegations will affect the Oscar race, with some predicting that Allen's leading lady, Cate Blanchett, who many considered a shoo-in for Best Actress, may not win the prize after all.
Due to the widespread coverage of Farrow's letter, it's not surprising that a few celebrities have come out in support or against the legendary filmmaker.

Supporters of Woody
"The View" co-host publicly defended the director during a recent broadcast of the talk show.
"I have rarely seen a father as sensitive, as loving and as caring as Woody is and Soon-Yi to these two girls," the 84-year-old host said of how Allen acts around his two adopted daughters with wife Soon-Yi.
"I don't know about Dylan. I can only tell you what I have seen now," adds Walters. "[Dylan's] doing it now because he's up for an [Oscar]. And so the question is: Does your personal life interfere with the awards that you may get?"
Keaton and Allen were romantically involved in the '70s and even after they broke up, the actress starred in a few of his films.
Recently, Keaton accepted Allen's Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes, calling Allen's female characters, "the hallmark of [his] work."
The actress and the director were in a relationship for 12 years before Farrow discovered that Allen was having an affair with her adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn.
Farrow has since come out in support of Dylan's claims, tweeting:
I love my daughter. I will always protect her. A lot of ugliness is going to be aimed at me. But this is not about me, it's about her truth.— mia farrow (@MiaFarrow) February 4, 2014

Dylan's adopted brother, and Allen's only biological child, who has been estranged from his father for years, has been outspoken about the abuse allegations from the beginning, tweeting during the Golden Globes:
Missed the Woody Allen tribute - did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?— Ronan Farrow (@RonanFarrow) January 13, 2014

And since Dylan's letter was posted, Farrow has tweeted his opinion on the topic:
I love and support my sister and I think her words speak for themselves.— Ronan Farrow (@RonanFarrow) February 2, 2014

"The View" co-host got into a heated debate with Barbara Walters over the Woody Allen topic, responding negatively to Walters calling the director a "sensitive," "loving" and "caring" father.
"We've heard so many cases of people going, 'He was the most wonderful person in the world...'" said Shepherd.
"Barbara, when you say, 'I'm speaking from what I've seen,' there are so many things that go on behind closed doors. We also know that he was with Soon-Yi when she was very young." (When Allen's affair with his stepdaughter came to light, she was 19.)
"It was his stepdaughter that he messed around with!" Shepherd adamantly concluded.
Refusing To Take Sides
The "Blue Jasmine" actress, who was directly called out in Dylan's letter for turning a blind eye to Allen's past behaviors, has since commented on the situation, saying, "It's been a long and painful situation for the family, and I hope they find some resolution and peace."
Baldwin, who also appeared in "Blue Jasmine," responded to tweets claiming that he owes Dylan Farrow an apology for appearing in a Woody Allen film.
"What the f&@% is wrong w u that u think we all need to b commenting on this family's personal struggle?" wrote Baldwin.
He also added, "You are mistaken if you think there is a place for me, or any outsider, in this family's issue."
These two tweets have since been deleted.
