Diane Keaton (née Hall; January 5, 1946) is an Academy Award-winning American

and her Academy Award nominations for Reds (1981) and Marvin's Room (1996). Some             
of her popular later films include Father of the Bride (1991), The First Wives               
Club (1996), and Something's Gotta Give (2003). Films Keaton has been in have
