Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, and their film–Fifty Shades of Grey–were all big winners at the Razzies on Saturday evening.

The Golden Raspberry Awards is a spoof of the Hollywood award season. E! News reports that “more than 900 members from 48 states and 20 foreign countries cast their vote for the films that may not have been so critically acclaimed.”
Fifty Shades of Grey, Jamie Dornan, and Dakota Johnson won big. Johnson took the Razzie for Worst Actress. Jamie Dornan was awarded Worst Actor. Fifty Shades of Grey tied with Fantastic 4 for Worst Picture. It won for Worst Screenplay. Last, but not least, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson were awarded the Razzie for Worst Screen Combo.
This has to take at least some of the wind out of Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson’s sails, as filming for the movie’s sequel–Fifty Shades Darker–is already underway.
Does it sound like The Razzies was out to get Fifty Shades of Grey in just about every way imaginable? There were other “winners” on Saturday, but none won multiple awards like Fifty Shades and its actors.
Fifty Shades Darker is set for release on February 10, 2017–just in time for another hot and steamy Valentine’s Day. That likely means Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson can expect more Razzies in the next couple of years.

Were you a fan of Fifty Shades, as well as Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in the red room? Are you among those not quite understanding why the film and its actors were awarded so many Razzies?
There may be a support group somewhere for that.
