for Worst Actress. Today the head of the group behind the Golden Raspberry Awards offered an apology.

Calling the backlash “valid criticism,” Wilson said Armstrong’s name has been removed from the final ballot and that the group is “adopting a Voting Guideline precluding any performer or film-maker under 18 years of age from being considered for our awards.”Here is Wilson’s statement in full: 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.
