It's award season! And that doesn't exclude the infamous Razzies. The Razzies is an award show dedicated to calling out the world films of the year. Now the Razzies aren't ever expected to be anything less than cruel, but people are saying they took it too far this year. Among those nominated in the Worst Actress category was a 12 year old girl named Ryan Kiera Armstrong. Armstrong was nominated for her role the remake of Stephen King’s Firestarter.
The fact that she is so young sparked huge debate on social media. The outrage was so bad that the Razzies recently took back the nomination and have since apologized.
Sometimes, you do things without thinking, Then you are called out for it. Then you get it. It’s why the Razzies were created in the first place," said Razzies founder John Wilson. "The recent valid criticism of the choice of 11 year old Armstrong as a nominee for one of our awards brought our attention to how insensitive we’ve been in this instance. As a result, we have removed Armstrong’s name from the Final Ballot that our members will cast next month. We also believe a public apology is owed Ms. Armstrong, and wish to say we regret any hurt she experienced as a result of our choices."
