Dakota Johnson's famously awkward interview with Ellen DeGeneres in November 2019 went viral after it was shared online, and fans are now celebrating the first anniversary of the memorable moment.

It's been a tough year for the talk-show host, whose famous "be kind" mantra has been called into question during the past few months.
Many seemingly awkward interviews DeGeneres did with other stars on her show have resurfaced, including one in which she poked fun at Sofia Vergara's Colombian accent. (Vergara told fans that she "was never a victim" and was "always in on the joke.")
The Australian radio host Neil Breen recently said he was told not to talk to, look at, or approach DeGeneres when he worked with her in 2013.
And in July, the show's parent company, WarnerMedia, launched an internal investigation into the show's workplace culture. Variety reported an "employee relations group and a third party firm" would conduct the investigation, interviewing current and former employees about their time on set.
DeGeneres subsequently addressed "issues" at her show with a letter to staff in late July, and the host doubled down on her comments during the season premiere of "The Ellen Show" in September.
"I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously," DeGeneres said in her opening monologue. "I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected."
"I know that I'm in a position of privilege and power. And I realized that with that comes responsibility," she continued. "And I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show.'"
