In the midst of awards season, such as the BAFTA and Oscars, there is also the golden raspberry, which consistently pokes fun at the worst movies of the year. In recent days, nominations for the awards have been announced, including a Worst Actress nomination for Ryan Kiera Armstrongjust 12 years old, for her role in the film Flames of vengeance.
However, after several criticisms, the organization of the event chose to withdraw the name of the artist from its selection. Through an official note released to the press last Wednesday (24), John Wilson, one of the directors of the Golden Raspberry, announced the removal and apologized to the child actress. “Sometimes, we do things without thinking”, quotes an excerpt from the note.
“We want to say that we are sorry for any pain she [Ryan Kiera Armstrong] has suffered as a result of our choices”, he emphasized. In the same newsletter, Wilson pointed out that, in future editions, new guidelines will be adopted so that underage artists are always disregarded from the Golden Raspberry.
“It was never our intention to bury anyone’s career. That’s why our redemption award was created. We all make mistakes, including us.” The actress or her representatives have not commented publicly at this time.
