Jamie Dornan and some of his most impressive work from last year lead a pack of nominations at this years IFTA Film & Drama Awards, scheduled to take place in Dublin, Ireland on April 8.
The Siege of Jadotville, a true story based on Irish UN troops in 1961 sent on a peace keeping mission in the Kongo at the height of the cold war, is nominated for an outstanding seven awards while BBC Drama The Fall, in which Dornan plays serial killer Paul Spector, is nominated for two. Jamie himself snagged the nomination for Actor in a Leading Role – Film for his portrayal of Commandant Pat Quinlan in Netflix’s Jadotville. Production, visual, score and Jadotville co-Star Jason O’Mara also received nominations, which we’ve listed below.
The IFTA’s are scheduled to take place at the Round Room in the Mansion House in Dublin, Ireland on Saturday April 8th, 2017. With no word yet on whether Jamie will attend, he has in the past (and won) and we’re optimistic he will again this year.

Paul Spector was a bad boy, Christian Grey is a bad boy and now Will Scarlet looks like he’s among Jamie Dornan’s bad boy characters too!
Dornan looks seriously bad ass in these set photos from Robin Hood: Origins. Jamie was on set in Dubrovnik, Croatia (finally) to film some scenes for the film which is slated to release on March 23, 2018. We waited and waited and waited for him to storm the set and when he finally did, he stormed it hard.
Check out both HQ and MQ photos of Jamie channeling his inner Paul Spector by clicking on the thumbnails below.
Also, keep watching as Jamie continues to film the movie. He’ll continue filming in Pula, Croatia.
Bow tie, check.
White tux, check.

Jamie and Millie attended the 89th Annual Academy Awards in LA on February 26 where they dazzled paparazzi, photographers and fans alike. The pair attended the Oscars where Jamie was set to present an award alongside Fifty Shades Darker co-star Dakota Johnson. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Jamie and Millie looked ravishing on the red carpet as they stepped out for a night of glitz and glamour in Los Angeles.
Jamie donned a lavish ivory tuxedo and black bow tie by Hermès and sported a Drive de Cartier extra flat watch on the wrist complete with Tods shoes. Amelia looked royal in a blush gown from Emilia Wickstead’s Spring RTW 2017 collection complete with Stephen Webster Crystal Haze earstuds.
The pair looked picture perfect in photographs from the red carpet as seen below. The pair really know how to dress to complement each other.
Inside, Jamie and Amelia sat with Dakota Johnson, Dornan’s Fifty Shades Darker co-star. Together, they enjoyed the opening ceremony complete with musical stylings from Justin Timberlake while enjoying each others company and sharing a few laughs during the evenings elegance.
Dornan and Johnson took to the stage where they presented the award for Best Production Design which was awarded to La La Land.
“You look familiar,” Johnson says as she greets her co-star.
“I’m sure I do” Dornan replies, followed by his sweet, mortified chuckle.
Jamie and Amelia then stepped out for the Vanity Fair After Oscars Party where Millie charged up her wardrobe in favour of something more sultry. While Dornan kept to his ivory white tuxedo (and we don’t mind one bit) Millie opted for a change in colour and turned heads in a luscious red Rosetta Getty cold-shoulder gown paired with Stephen Webster chandelier earrings.

Los Angeles went Darker on February 2nd, 2017 when the stars of E L James’ hotly anticipated sequel to her Fifty Shades of Grey franchise attended the North American premier of Fifty Shades Darker.
It was the type of night Mr. Grey would expect you to be on your best behaviour for, all gussied up in Caroline Acton with just the right accessories. A masquerade ball mask, for instance.
Fans of the franchise got an opportunity to recreate the opulent and saturated masquerade ball ceremony when they were invited to attend the lavish event in LA. Fans from all over the world came to meet their #FiftyFamily and indulge in an all-out girls night. Complete with music from José James (the vocalist and band featured at the ball in the film) hors-d’oeuvres, elegant buffet, dancing, photo booths and more, the night was as magical as it is portrayed in James’ telling of the story.
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson along with director James Foley and author E L James, stepped onto the stage to present the movie and share their thoughts on how the growth between films is something fans will not be disappointed with. James, more enthusiastic than we’ve seen her in a long time, spoke about her excitement surrounding Darker and how confident she is that the fans will be satiated. “We nailed it,” she exclaims, throwing her fists in the air as if securing a victory.
While everyone looked spectacular, all eyes were on Jamie and Dakota.
Dakota illuminated the room in a blush pink gown by Valentino with a plunging neckline from the Spring 2017 collection. Her co-star, Dornan, rocked the same designer while sporting Louboutin shoes.
The pair compliment each other well – laughing and giggling, whispering some inside jokes to each other, they without a doubt have developed a friendship and trust that will expand beyond their years as Christian and Ana.
One premier down and it’s off to Hamburg, Germany for premier number two.
It was an incredible and exciting night. We were given the opportunity to attend the Masquerade Ball and movie premier in Los Angeles, California on February 2nd. Wearing our evening dresses and carrying our masks, we arrived 20 minutes before the venue opened at Vibiana. When we went to collect our tickets at the Will Call desk we were given a choice of the Samantha Peach masks in either cream or silver such as the one Ana wears. There was also a black one like Christian’s which I wish I had chosen instead. I went with the cream one since I already was gifted the silver one.
We didn’t have to wait long in line to enter and it was nice to chat with other people attending the ball and seeing everyone in their fabulous dresses. Once we entered the venue there were waiters in black masks and tuxes on each side of us with hors d’oeuvres and champagne. Inside the venue they had several activities to occupy our time and entertain us. It was all decorated beautifully with red velvet couches, white roses and candles.
One of the most fun things was the Virtual Reality experience where we got to view Christian’s apartment and then were invited to the Masquerade Ball. It was amusing watching the people ahead of us using the Oculus VR headset but once it was placed on my head I understood why people where spinning, smiling and stumbling around. During the experience we were greeted by Mia and then Ana and Christian who when we walked in with him, acknowledged that we were there. It was surreal!
We had the opportunity to have our palm read or to do a tarot card reading. I chose the palm reading since I never had done it before. There were several tables set up with readers and was one of the most popular activities. Staci’s entire session was recorded. I’m hoping we see her on the DVD or such.
Sipping on champagne and eating pastries we waited in line to do the 360 video with Ana and Christian in the background. It was also a great opportunity to meet a few people and take pics of them with Pocket Jamie, who was a hit. While waiting, NBC Today Show’s Natalie Morales partook in the 360 picture. I even snapped a pic of Pocket Jamie with Natalie in the background. I didn’t care for my picture because it wasn’t explained that it was only going to be one picture instead of multiple pics but it was still pretty cool and the video was great quality.
A delicious buffet table was set up with lamb chops, Sea Bass, and two types of salad. There was also a desert table with macaroons, brownie bites and lemon tarts which we enjoyed while listening to the band that is actually featured in the movie and Eric Johnson who plays Jack Hyde came in to mingle with the crowd. I think he was a bit overwhelmed about the response he got from the fans because he was quickly bombarded but it was nice to see that he was genuinely pleased to be there.
Set up on the right side was a green screen where we were able to take a picture with Ana and Christian and it was printed instantly for us as a souvenir. Wish I had waited because Staci chose that moment to got to the ladies’ room and Jamie himself passed right by her since they were doing press in a tent outside of the venue. Knowing this I knew that the cast would be entering soon so we made sure to stay near the door. I was but a foot away from Erika, Dakota and Jamie as well as the director James Foley.
On stage James was the first to thank the fans, followed by Dakota, Erika and Jamie mumbled a bit. You could tell he’s still a bit uncomfortable talking to a crowd but he appreciated our energy and enthusiasm. I had a great shot of the stage and only wish I had stopped recording to take a selfie of me with the cast in the background. I was just so overwhelmed that I couldn’t think straight! On their way out of Vibiana I called out Dakota’s name which she gave me a smile and Jamie turned back to wave to us. Soon after, we were asked to start moving towards the front to catch the shuttle to the Theater at Ace Hotel where we would be viewing the movie. On our way out,we were given another gift of a VR viewer with the movie poster on the front of it. It truly was astonishing to see how generous the studio was with us since they had sent us a gift the day before which included a t-shirt, movie tie-in book of Darker, lip balm, drinking glasses, VR viewer and a cardboard Ana mask. We also received some fabulous lipstick by Sisley. We of course chose red!
We quickly got on the bus and were at the Ace in as little as five minutes where we were escorted to our assigned seats in the orchestra area, row Q, seats 18 and 17. The theater had a vintage feel and is beautiful. Once inside, a few of the other actors where arriving and I quickly recognized Victor Rasuk who of course is Jose Rodriquez and was able to get a selfie with the gorgeous Ashleigh LaThrop who plays Hannah, which is Ana’s assistant in the movie at S.I.P. Soon after it was announced for us to take our seats and James Foley, E.L. James came out and thanked the fans and then announced Dakota and Jamie. Did I mention how sexy and hot they looked? Well, they were off the charts! Dakota looked like an angel in her cream Valentino dress and Jamie couldn’t be any sexier in his blue suit. E.L. James dress was fabulous as well and she rocked it.
I had been debating as to whether I wanted to purchase the full soundtrack to the movie but after seeing how the songs corresponded to the scenes, I quickly made up my mind and pre-ordered it once I arrived home. Needless to say Darker was a roller-coaster ride of emotions! It truly delivered on everything that made us fall in love with these books and characters. Jamie was marvelous and owned the role of Christian Grey this time around. He exuded sexiness, humor masculinity and did I mention SEXINESS?!?! As where in the first movie all eyes were drawn to Dakota Johnson’s Ana, I have to say that Jamie outshone her in this one. Not to take anything away from her performance either but we saw how wonderful she brought the role to life in the last film.
The pacing was perfect and the script was more natural and real. Oh let’s talk about the sex scenes without giving away any spoilers. There was cheering, coming from the audience because they made you feel it to your core. The chemistry was beautiful and the kisses smoldered. It truly felt like two people in love with each other that were willing to fight all obstacles. Well you all read the books so you know what happens and the movie version fulfilled our expectation leaving us satisfied and sated.
Jamie stopped by The Conan O’Brien show on February 1st where he debuted a party trick we’ve all been secretly dying to see him do in person. We’ve all seen the photographs but never did we think he’d perform the stunt for us on television.
With a crowd filled and fueled by Official Fifty members among other fans of Jamie who made the journey to LA, Jamie starts the interview by stating that he doesn’t have fond memories of the Warner Brothers’ lot.
He auditioned for the film ‘Rock of Ages,’ a few years back and before leaving for the audition, he grabbed a bottle of liquid courage (Whiskey) which didn’t turn out to be such a good idea.
“I had to sing a couple of songs that were well beyond my capabilities. I was first up. It was like 9:45 in the morning and I had just woken up, brushed my teeth and went here, came, here. And I thought, I’ll bring a little bottle of whiskey with me because it really made sense to me at the time. And I thought, it’ll do two things; it’ll give me a bit of courage, because I didn’t think I was a very good singer and the other it would do would warm my vocal chords. So that was the plan anyway. And I parked right before the big water tower thing, and I (…) open the door and I take the whiskey and drank it and as soon as it hit my lips, I puked. I’m talking like, instantly like, really, not just threw up I mean I really threw up all over the side of the car, all these executives are driving by in like little golf buggies and stuff. And then I didn’t think it through. I didn’t bring mouth wash or mints or anything so I went into this audition smelling like whiskey and puke and then sang really badly. Anyway, that’s why you didn’t see me in ‘Rock of Ages.’
Speaking of how sometimes it’s hard for Americans to understand his thick Irish accent, Jamie tells Conan and the audience that if he orders food at a fast food restaurant, he does it in an American accent, because there’s just some things he doesn’t want others to get wrong. At In and Out Burger, he goes for the four-by-four. Four burger patties on a bun with a bucket of cheese – we knew Jamie liked his burgers!
“Were you always confident with women?”
“I was always anything but confident. (…) In fact when we were in University we used to play this game because I was totally incapable of talking to girls and a guy on the Rugby team I played on at University played this game called ‘Shy Guy.” He explains how his friends would go up to a girl and say “My friend’s over there, he’s really shy, but he likes you.” and the idea is that the girl is ‘Awe that’s really sweet, who is he?”
“So one night we tried this on twins at the university (…) and she took one look at Jamie and said ‘Nope.'” Talk about a missed opportunity!
Onto Jamie’s party trick, which he eludes to the fact that Christian may perform this trick in Fifty Shades Darker. Jamie displays how strong he is by showcasing his upper body strength in a balancing act off the edge of Conan’s desk. We’ve seen this before but not in the flesh. Conan’s face says it all!
“This is such a bad idea.”
“I don’t know what’s gonna happen now.”
“Just before I do this, if my face breaks or anything, you will pay for all that, right?”
“I myself will not pay for it.”
He does it with ease but uh, oh – it looks like he pulled a pec muscle! He’s in obvious discomfort but brushes it off. “I’m honestly not exaggerating I’ve just pulled my pec. Yeah that’s not good. Did it look good?” Yes Jamie, it looked beautiful!
A Darker clip is then shown.
Conan ends the interview by telling Jamie he’s really fun to talk to, while fans yell out that they love him.
Let’s hope Jamie does more American television interviews in the future because this past week has been a blast!
