Diane Keaton

Keaton in 2012 Diane Keaton (''née'' Hall; January 5, 1946) is an American actress and director. She has received various accolades throughout her career spanning over six decades, including an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, two Golden Globe Awards, and the AFI Life Achievement Award.

Keaton's career began on stage when she appeared in the original 1968 Broadway production of the musical ''Hair''. The next year she was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play for her performance in Woody Allen's comic play ''Play it Again, Sam''. She then made her screen debut in a small role in ''Lovers and Other Strangers'' (1970), before rising to prominence with her first major film role as Kay Adams-Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola's ''The Godfather'' (1972), a role she reprised in its sequels ''Part II'' (1974) and ''Part III'' (1990). She frequently collaborated with Woody Allen, beginning with the film adaptation of ''Play It Again, Sam'' (1972). Her next two films with him, ''Sleeper'' (1973) and ''Love and Death'' (1975), established her as a comic actor, while her fourth, ''Annie Hall'' (1977), won her the Academy Award for Best Actress.

To avoid being typecast as her ''Annie Hall'' persona, Keaton appeared in several dramatic films, starring in ''Looking for Mr. Goodbar'' (1977) and ''Interiors'' (1978). She received three more Academy Award nominations for her roles as activist Louise Bryant in ''Reds'' (1981), a leukemia patient in ''Marvin's Room'' (1996), and a dramatist in ''Something's Gotta Give'' (2003).
