Razzies founder apologizes for ‘insensitive’ nomination of 12-12 months-previous actress

After times of backlash about 12-12 months-aged Ryan Kiera Armstrong’s Worst Actress nomination, Razzies founder John Wilson has issued an apology and launched an age restrict for the awards ceremony. .

Razzies – a parody award clearly show focused only on honoring underwhelming performances and films – previously nominated Armstrong for Worst Actress primarily based on her position in the 2022 sci-fi horror film Firestarter The move sparked an overwhelmingly unfavorable response thanks to the actor’s youth, with many contacting for the present to rescind the nomination.

From Amber Midthunder in Prey to Austin Butler’s Elvis to Nope’s Daniel Kaluuya to Ke Hoi Kuan and Michelle Yeoh’s Double Threat in Everything Everywhere All at Once, this year will be memorable. It was an acting year. These are the nominees for Best Performance in a Movie of 2022…” src=”https://assets-prd.ignimgs.com/2022/12/02/best-of-22-nominees-best-performance – movie-1670020448926.jpg?width=888&crop=16%3A9&quality=20&dpr=0.05″ class=”jsx-2920405963 Progressive image jsx-1049729975 Image aspect ratio aspect ratio-16-9 jsx-1330092051 jsx-3166191823 Rounded loading

Of course, this isn’t the first time the Razzies have withdrawn a nomination in years. After actor Bruce Willis was diagnosed with aphasia last year, the show took his name off the vote for the Worst Performance award.

Armstrong’s name was dropped from the Razzies Worst Actress poll, but Firestarter remains nominated for Worst Remake/Rip/Sequel. Not surprising. Our review states, “The Firestarter waits 90 minutes for the water to heat up, but it never gets lukewarm.”
