Last week, we scooped that Woody Allen would not attend the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards on January 12 where he will be the recipient of the 2014 Cecil B. DeMille Award. Now we can reveal that his longtime friend and muse Diane Keaton will accept the award on his behalf. I have learned that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association made the decision to honor Allen with the knowledge that the Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning filmmaker would not attend. Keaton was then approached about receiving the award on his behalf. Keaton and Allen met in 1968 when she auditioned and was cast in his Broadway play, Play It Again, Sam. They were a couple for 5 years and are still very good friends today. Keaton appeared in eight Allen films spanning two decades, winning an Oscar and Golden Globe for 1976?s Annie Hall.

Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy will voice the parents of the dim-witted fish Dory in Disney/Pixar’s “Finding Nemo” sequel “Finding Dory,” the studio announced Friday at its D23 Expo in Anaheim.
Ty Burrell will play a beluga whale in the 2015 animated feature, which brings back “Nemo” voice actors Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres.
The first film, released in 2003, remains one of the most successful and beloved animated movies of all-time. It grossed $922 million at the global box office and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
DeGeneres lobbied Pixar to make a second film, and Pixar announced in April it would make a sequel.
Pixar chief John Lasseter told the crowd on Friday that the studio has begun production on the film, and introduced director Andrew Stanton. After disclosing the addition of Levy, Burrell and Keaton, he said they needed to keep the rest a secret but assured fans that Bill Hader, who had already taken the stage three times, would not be voicing a character.

Myriad Pictures has tapped Richard Loncraine to direct Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton in Life Itself, a comedy based on the Jill Ciment novel Heroic Measures. Charlie Peters wrote the screenplay, about a long-married NY couple who find themselves swept into an emotional and comical real estate bidding war when they put their beloved downtown apartment on the market — and must come to terms with the possibility of moving from the home where they have spent most of their adult lives. Freeman and Lori McCreary’s Revelations Entertainment will produce with Latitude Productions. McCreary, Curtis Burch, Peters and Tracy Mercer are producing, and Freeman will executive produce. Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico and David Ducar negotiated international sales rights to the film and the company is introducing the project at Cannes. Its slate here includes Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes starring Kaya Scodelario and Jessica Biel; The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Him And Her with Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy; Life Partners with Leighton Meester, Adam Brody, and Gillian Jacobs; and the Derek Martini-directed The Curse Of Downers Grove with Bella Heathcote, Lucas Till and Kevin Zegers. CAA and WME Global co-rep North American rights to Life Itself.
