This weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” host Dakota Johnson wasted no time mocking her Oscars red carpet behavior on the sketch comedy show’s promos.

Dakota Johnson Spoofs "Fifty Shades," Mocks Dad's "Miami Vice" Role & Oscars Argument With Mom!

25 February 2015 10:30 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Dakota Johnson isn't afraid to poke fun at herself ... or her famous family! The "Fifty Shades of Grey" star is set to make her hosting debut on "Saturday Night Live" this week, so, of course, she mocked her racy role in the new promos. In the clip, the 25-year-old actress does her best Anastasia Steele, getting her now-famous lip bite on with Taran Killam as Christian Grey. She also jokes about the title of the movie by saying, "It's about this young woman who is trying to decide what color grey to paint her bedroom." Don't worry, she clarifies it by admitting that she "gets her tushy spanked." The brunette beauty also targets dad Don Johnson's "Miami Vice" role, which required a quick wardrobe change for the comedian. Sporting a pale pink 80's jacket and a mint T-shirt, Killam pays tribute to Johnson's infamous role in the hit series. »

Dakota Johnson's Tense 'Fifty Shades' Convo with Mom Melanie Griffith Turns Painful

23 February 2015 10:09 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Turns out Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson are just like the rest of us -- they have tense mother-daughter arguments too!

Only in their case, it's in front of thousands of Oscar viewers.

The mother-daughter duo's pre-Oscars interview with Good Morning America's Lara Spencer already started off on a cold note, when Melanie was surprisingly frosty when asked about the incredible box-office success of Dakota's Fifty Shades of Grey.

"I don't want to say 'I'm so proud,' I've said it so many times, it seems like it's not enough," she said with a tight smile.

The 57-year-old actress then admits she still hasn't seen the film.

"Maybe one day," Dakota said, though Melanie was adamant about not seeing it.

"I don't think I can," she said. “I think it would be strange."

But 25-year-old Dakota just couldn't. let. it. go.

TV Review: ‘The 87th Academy Awards’

22 February 2015 9:29 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While it’s no surprise that the buoyancy of Neil Patrick Harris’ Oscar opening couldn’t last, seldom has an Academy Awards presentation broken down so transparently over one significant shortcoming – namely, the writing. While a number of factors, including a preponderance of little-seen nominees and the predictable nature of the winners outside the best-movie category, were beyond the producers’ control, too much clunky scripted material flummoxed even Harris’ impish, good-natured charms. The Oscars are an unwieldy construct, but fleeting YouTube-worthy moments couldn’t overcome a telecast that played more than usual like a cheesy variety show interrupted by a celebration of movies.

Stilted presenter banter is an accepted part of the territory, but the introductions and bits conjured for the host can be a place for slightly livelier humor. Yet almost without exception those felt alternately flat or forced, best exemplified by Harris strained baton pass to “The Hunger Games’” Josh Hutcherson, »
