Will Jamie Dornan win an Oscar for the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaptation of the Twilight fan-fiction sex novel 50 Shades of Grey? Yes. Oops, sorry, I mean—Will he? It's the question on everyone's sexy lips as we inch closer to award season, and 50 Shades co-screenwriter Kelly Marcel thinks she has your answer!
According to the Daily Mail, Marcel recently took part in a screenwriting Q&A during which she was asked if she had any difficulty writing 50 Shades of Grey's sex scenes. (Any "difficulty," wink.) She noted that the screenplay's specificity was a bit of an issue, saying, "I had to actually describe everything! It was really embarrassing when you're doing studio notes around the table with 12 people." She continued:
Kelly revealed that the 'you are my popsicle' line from a particularly raunchy section of the book went into the movie, adding: 'It's genius. 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!'
Hmm. Yes. Is Jamie Dornan going to get an Oscar for being both soft and hard in 50 Shades of Grey? Yes! The only real question is what Oscar will Jamie Dornan win? And also how many? Maybe these:
- Oscar for Being Soft
- Oscar for Being Hard
- Oscar for You Are My Popsicle
- Oscar for Being Both Soft and Hard
- Oscar for Being Genius
- Oscar for Doing Scenes Great
- Actor Oscar
- Best Movie
- Best Sex
Hmmm. Yes! Unfortunately, not everyone is as sure as Kelly and I (also Kelly) are about Dornan's Oscar future:
@magellan79 Yeah. I mean, I think Jamie Dornan shows real talent in The Fall, but winning an Oscar for FS? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA NO.
