5 Lessons For Actresses from Diane Keaton’s AFI Lifetime Achievement Award Tribute

9 June 2017 4:03 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When Diane Keaton accepted the 45th AFI Life Achievement Award from Woody Allen in Hollywood Thursday night, it was the end of one of the more memorable AFI tributes. And as one actress after another explained why Keaton was such a significant role model — from Oscar-winners Emma Stone, Reese Witherspoon (Keaton-directed TV movie “Wildflower”) and Meryl Streep (“Marvin’s Room”) to Rachel McAdams (“The Family Stone”) and comedienne Lisa Kudrow (“Hanging Up”) —  it struck me that all actresses should pay attention to why Keaton is so admired and emulated.

Here are some wise lessons to be learned from the star of  “Play It Again Sam,” “The First Wives Club,” “Crimes of the Heart,”  “Shoot the Moon,” and HBO’s “The Young Pope.”

1. Stay single.

Keaton launched her Hollywood career with the day-long wedding scene in “The Godfather,” at the end of which she and fellow theater outsider Al Pacino proceeded to get royally drunk. »

Diane Keaton is feeling the love from her famous exes.

The actress was honored at the 45th Annual AFI Life Achievement Award ceremony Thursday night where her friend and early collaborator Woody Allen made a surprised Hollywood appearance.

Steve Martin and Martin Short Share a Steamy Kiss For Diane Keaton

9 June 2017 6:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Diana Keaton was surrounded by her famous friends when she was honored with a Life Achievement Award by the American Film Institute in La on Thursday night. While several stars paid tribute to the actress during the ceremony - including Meryl Streep, who dressed up as her iconic character, Annie Hall - one of the best moments was between her Father of the Bride costars Steve Martin and Martin Short. Aside from serenading Diane, on and off stage, the comedians put their bromance on full display when they locked lips at their seats. Perhaps they're trying to give Ryan Reynolds and Andrew Garfield, who famously shared a smooch at the Golden Globes, a run for their money.

The old and new guards of Hollywood turned out in force for the AFI Life Achievement Award ceremony honoring Diane Keaton on Thursday night at the Dolby Theatre.

Dp Frederick Elmes also received the Franklin J. Schaffner Alumni Medal.

Even Woody Allen made a rare L.A. appearance to present Keaton with her trophy, saying, “This is a woman who is great at everything.

Diane Keaton and I go back a long way,” he said. He roasted her looks, style (“She looks like the woman in ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ who comes to take Blanche away”), and men who, he said, were the “most charismatic men in Hollywood and they always dumped her.”

He was not the only one to roast a delighted Keaton, who sat back and laughed at it all. Martin Short and Steve Martin kicked off the evening with a song routine at a grand piano. “Diane, »

8 June 2017 10:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Meryl Streep is a masterful actress and costume chameleon — after all, she’s dressed up as Donald Trump (and nailed it).

So it was no surprise when Streep, 67, stylishly took a page from Diane Keaton‘s fashion book to honor her at the American Film Institute (AFI)’s event in Los Angeles on Thursday, where Keaton, 71, became the 45th recipient of the Life Achievement Award.

Streep copied her longtime pal’s signature style, borrowing from the boys in a tie, hat, blazer and high-waisted pant that Keaton’s title role in Woody Allen’s Annie Hall required of her in »

It’s been 20 years since Rick Moranis last appeared onscreen, in the mind-bendingly titled “Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.” A fixture of ’80s and ’90s blockbuster comedies, Moranis was beloved for his iconic roles in “Ghostbusters,” “Spaceballs,” and for leading the “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” franchise. He stepped away from acting in 1997 in order to focus on his family, only returning for the very occasional voiceover or writing gig.
