Strange reference? Not really, but only when you remember that Dakota Johnson, the star of Fifty Shades Darker, is also the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson — so the whole scene is a loving tribute to Johnson’s mother’s Oscar-nominated movie and role. Back in 1988, Mike Nichols’ Working Girl — the story of a crafty secretary who climbs the corporate ladder after her boss steals one of her ideas — charmed audiences and Academy members, earning numerous Oscar noms including Best Picture and Director. Griffith got an Oscar nom, her first and only, but lost that year to Jodie Foster, from The Accused. Revisit the late 80s with this Working Girl trailer:
