LOS ANGELES — Diane Keaton is such a special entertainer that even normally reclusive Woody Allen is appearing in a televised tribute to her.

Allen was among those honoring the actress in the American Film Institute’s presentation of its 45th Life Achievement Award. The AFI’s “Tribute to Diane Keaton” aired Thursday night on TNT.

Warren Beatty, Morgan Freeman, Reese Witherspoon, Jane Fonda and Emma Stone also paid homage to Keaton during a gala ceremony last week in Hollywood. Steve Martin and Martin Short performed a musical roast of the actress.

Allen, who directed Keaton to her Oscar-winning performance in “Annie Hall,” said he owes much of what he’s accomplished in his life to her.
