Razzies nominates 12-year-old for Worst Actress, Ana de Armas-starrer Blonde leads noms: 'Feels straight-up bullying'

Jan 24, 2023 04:00 PM IST

The 43rd Razzie Awards revealed their list of the “worst” films and performances of this past cinematic year. Many fans online felt their selection of 12-year-old Ryan Kiera Armstrong as the worst actress went too far. Ana de Armas-starrer Blonde leads the list with eight nominations.

The Razzie Awards unveiled their nominations with the “worst” films and performances of 2022. Oscar winner Tom Hanks and Pete Davidson were double nominees for their work this past year. Ana de Armas-starrer Blonde leads the list with eight nominations. Machine Gun Kelly's comedy Good Mourning followed with seven noms. But many fans online felt the Razzies went too far by nominating 12-year-old Ryan Kiera Armstrong as Worst Actress for her performance in Firestarter.

This isn't the first time the Razzies have nominated a child. Previously, actors Gary Coleman was nominated as a 12-year-old and Macaulay Culkin at 13 in 1994. One Twitter user shared, "We're picking on 12 year old girls now, Razzies? Cool cool cool." Another added, "The Razzies: 'yeah let's nominate a 12-year-old child actor for Worst Actress, surely there won't be anything damaging that could happen in her career in the future like blacklisting, bullying, abuse, depression, addiction, and suicide along the way.'"

Others felt the Razzies were just bullying some performers. One user wrote, "Maybe it's just me but nominating 12 year old girl for anything "worst" feels straight-up bullying to me. Then again, I never expected any class from this awful organization. No idea why they still exist. #razzies #razzieawards." One more user pointed out the organisation's double standards when it came to other issues in the past. They wrote, "The #Razzies in 2022: “We rescind how badly we insulted Bruce Willis and Shelley Duvall, that was just cruel. The Razzies in 2023: “Let’s ridicule this 12-year-old girl for doing her best in a movie that wasn’t great!”

Other films that found themselves with multiple nominations were Morbius, starring Jared Leto, Disney's Pinocchio, and the sequel to Netflix's widely-panned 365 Days. The awards which call themselves the "ugly cousin to the Oscars" will reveal their winners for their 43rd edition on 11 March, one day before the Oscars. They announced their nominations two days before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).
