MORNING GLORY

One of the most popular, versatile and acclaimed actresses at work today, Academy Award® winner DIANE KEATON (Colleen Peck) has created some of the most distinctive roles in some of the most admired films of the last three decades.

Born in California, Keaton began her acting career studying at Manhattan's Neighborhood Playhouse. After starring on Broadway in "Hair,” she met Woody Allen, who cast her in his 1969 stage hit "Play It Again, Sam,” which they would go on to reprise for the big screen in 1972, becoming a comedy classic. That same year, Keaton garnered global acclaim as the girlfriend of Al Pacino's Michael Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 blockbuster The Godfather.

Keaton went on to star in Coppola's The Godfather: Part II and Allen's Sleeper and Love and Death. In 1977, Allen completed his fourth film with Keaton, Annie Hall, an autobiographical portrait of the travails of the couple's real-life romance. For her performance in the title role, Keaton won the Academy Award® for Best Actress as well as a Golden Globe® Award – and became an international trend-setter, with her character inspiring women around the world to commandeer men's jackets and ties as part of feminine style.

Keaton received another Oscar® nomination for her role as early 20th Century journalist Louise Bryant in Warren Beatty's epic film Reds. Her other roles from the period include Lovers and other Strangers, Looking for Mr. Goodbar, Harry and Walter Go To New York, Shoot The Moon, The Little Drummer Girl, Mrs. Soffel, Crimes of the Heart, Baby Boom and The Good Mother. Her films with Woody Allen also comprise Interiors, Manhattan, Radio Days and Manhattan Murder Mystery.

In 1996, Keaton joined with Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn in the comedy smash hit The First Wives Club and then earned another Oscar® nomination for her work as a feuding sister in the moving drama, Marvin's Room with Meryl Streep, Robert DeNiro and Leonardo DiCaprio. Following The Only Thrill and The Other Sister, she earned her fourth Oscar® nomination, a second Golden Globe® and widespread accolades in the witty romantic comedy Something's Gotta Give playing opposite Jack Nicholson. This was followed by The Family Stone, Terminal Impact, Because I Said So, Mama's Boy, Smother and Mad Money.

She will next be seen in the title role of Bill Condon's Hollywood-set comedy Tilda, with Ellen Page and Jason Patric.

Also renowned for her directing work, Keaton first stepped behind the camera on the documentary Heaven in 1987. She went on to helm the features Unstrung Heroes and Hanging Up and produced The Lemon Sisters for director Joyce Chopra. For television, she he has directed episodes of "China Beach,” "CBS Schoolbreak Special,” "Twin Peaks,” "Wildflower” and "Pasadena,” which she also executive produced. Keaton has served as executive producer on several shows including "Northern Lights,” "Elephants” and the miniseries "Oh, What a Time It Was.”
