Diane Keaton’s charming colonial home

Apartment Therapy has some pictures from inside the home of Diane Keaton, one of my favorite Hollywood actresses. Her decor, it appears, is as eccentric as she is. I love it.

Very warm. Very charming. Just like Diane. Favorite Diane Keaton moment? Argh, so hard to pick, but certainly one of them is that bit in 1973’s Sleeper when she and Woody Allen are walking down the long corridor nitpicking at each other.

The Muppets take ‘Manhattan’

Every time I watch this mash-up clip I marvel at how this footage of The Muppets Take Manhattan brilliantly synchs up with dialogue from the art museum party scene of Woody Allen‘s Manhattan. Check this out:

Now, if you’re a fan of Manhattan, you know that’s incredible, don’t you? Isn’t it brilliant to cast Kermit the Frog in the Woody Allen character? It’s just great. Kermit was much better at it than Kenneth Branagh in Celebrity.

Diane Keaton accepting her Oscar for “Annie Hall”

Two things struck me while I watched this 1978 clip of Diane Keaton accepting her Oscar for Annie Hall (1) Wow, actors were really able to express themselves, for good or bad, in the years before stylists like Rachel Zoe. I miss those days. I used to enjoy seeing the kind of clothes people liked to wear. (2) Diane’s speech makes me think she wasn’t acting at all in Annie Hall, which Woody Allen wrote for her. “Wow, this is really terrific!”

I think she’s precious.
