‘Fifty Shade Of Grey' Film Will Get Jamie Dornan An Oscar, Jokes The Movie's Screenwriter Kelly Marcel (VIDEO)

‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ screenwriter Kelly Marcel has joked that Jamie Dornan should get an Oscar for his performance as Mr Grey.

Speaking at a Q&A in Hollywood, Kelly laughed after the host Reza Aslan recited the “you are my popsicle” line from the book, before suggesting that the Academy should consider the film.

Kelly declared that the scene is “genius”, adding: “They apparently did that scene great. Apparently Jamie is great at being soft and hard at the same time.

“Which is hard to do for an actor! He’s going to get an Oscar!’

The first trailer for the ‘Fifty Shades’ film was released earlier this year and features a sultry new version of Beyoncé’s ‘Crazy In Love’.

Two people who won’t be watching the film are Dakota Johnson’s parents, who understandably don’t fancy watching their daughter star as Anastasia Steele.

"If it were them doing a (sexy) movie I wouldn't want them to see that (either)," the actress said.
