Oh snap! While hosting ‘SNL’ for her first time, Dakota dissed her box office hit ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ by saying it most definitely will ‘not’ win any Oscars. Watch the hilarious clip here!
Fifty Shades Of Grey‘s leading lady Dakota Johnson, 25, took the Saturday Night Live stage on Feb. 28, where she threw some major shade at her highly successful film! During the opening monologue, Dakota took a jab at Fifty Shades by making a joke that the sexy film isn’t exactly Oscars material.
Dakota Johnson Disses ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ On ‘SNL’ Opening Monologue
We have to hand it to Dakota for having a good sense of humor! While she made it known on SNL that she was very proud of Fifty Shades, she also couldn’t help joking about the film.
“This movie is a ton of fun and I’m really proud of it, and I don’t want to speak too soon, but I have a funny feeling that at next year’s Oscars it’s gonna be… not anywhere,” Dakota says with a laugh.
“But who cares right, I mean I don’t care about that,” Dakota continues. “It’s already made like $500 million dollars and the fans really love it! And by fans I mean a very specific group of people.”
Right then, it pans to an overeager fan and his wife dressed in full 50 Shades gear, who awkwardly mention that the film has brought them closer together — and that their kids have noticed. So awkward!
We then see Dakota’s parents, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, are both in the audience — but of course, they’re shielding their faces in case she’s naked!
Dakota Johnson’s ‘SNL’ Promos — Hilariously Calls Out Melanie Griffith
In the SNL promo for her segment, Dakota was joined by cast member Taran Killam who called out Dakota’s famous mom, Melanie, for not seeing Fifty Shades!
In the hilarious promo, which can be watched here, Dakota and Taran banter about how Melanie does not support Dakota since she hasn’t watched the film. Then, Taran goes all Christian Grey on Dakota as he pulls out two grey ties and asks her opinion on which he should wear for a dinner party.
