The trend is attention-grabbing maybe considerably justified, however I believe overblown.

“There’s a righteousness about it. It’s the Razzie Awards, for goodness’ sake!”

Wilson admitted that the Razzies had in all probability “misstepped very badly”.

Oh, you suppose? Nicely, it wasn’t till John’s chonies burst into flames that he realized simply how badly he had misstepped. Based on Variety:

The Razzie Awards have launched an age restrict for nominations following blowback after 12-year-old Ryan Kiera Armstrong (pictured above) was nominated for Worst Actress.

In a press release, Razzies founder John Wilson apologized and confirmed Armstrong’s identify has been faraway from the poll. He additionally mentioned that going ahead under-18s wouldn’t be eligible to be nominated for the awards.

In a press release, Wilson known as the criticism “legitimate” and mentioned Armstrong’s identify had been faraway from the poll. He added: “We additionally consider a public apology is owed Ms. Armstrong, and want to say we remorse any damage she skilled because of our selections.”

Mess with hearth, son; you’re gonna get burned. Mess with my lady Ryan; you’re gonna get incinerated. Because of this, and lots of, many others, I hereby nominate The Razzie Awards for Messiest Awards Season Bitch for the second consecutive yr. Don’t agree with me? Nice.
