The Razzies take back their worst-actress nomination of 'Firestarter' star Ryan Kiera Armstrong after facing backlash for nominating a child actor.

“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,” Razzies co-founder John Wilson said in a separate response provided to The Times.

Razzies Apologizes for Nominating Child Actor for Worst ActressThe sardonic awards organization said it would no longer nominate actors and filmmakers under the age of 18 after the group faced backlash for naming 12-year-old Ryan Kiera Armstrong among this year’s worst actresses.

Way too long and boring. Terrible. The Elvis & Nixon movie was far better. You can terrible at 12 but I guess it’s ok to give them 6 years more to get worse…

Complete waste of everyone’s time. bwaha sorry but I kinda love how mean that is. Very Roald dahl. maybe cause I find most child actors & singers annoying. MJ was the only great child singer, period.
