Stone introduced a highlight reel of Allen's films, including Annie Hall, Manhattan, Bullets Over Broadway, Stardust Memories, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Midnight in Paris and Blue Jasmine.

"It's kind of hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that 179 of the world's most captivating actresses have appeared in Woody Allen's films," said Keaton.

"And there's a reason for this. And the reason is, they wanted to. They wanted to because Woody's women can't be compartmentalised. They struggle, they love, they fall apart, they dominate, they're flawed. They are, in fact, the hallmark of Woody's work.

"But what's even more remarkable is absolutely nothing links these unforgettable characters from the fact that they came from the mind of Woody Allen."

She went on to quote Allen, saying, "As I've said many times, rather than live on in the hearts and minds of my fellow man, I would rather live on in my apartment."

Keaton - who won a Golden Globe and Oscar for her role in 1977's Annie Hall - finished by singing the Girl Scout song in tribute to her friend of 45 years.

Allen's Blue Jasmine was nominated for two awards at the Golden Globes, with Cate Blanchett being named Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for her role later in the evening.
