LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Diane Keaton accepts the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award this week, she'll say it's all because of her mom, dad and Woody Allen.

The Oscar-winning actress credits her parents with instilling her creativity and work ethic, and Allen's "Annie Hall" with launching her career, which has spanned five decades and more than 80 films so far.

The 71-year-old star will receive the AFI award at a gala tribute in Hollywood on Thursday.
