With clear words, US actress Drew Barrymore (47, “Charlie’s Angels”) criticized the contributors of the “Golden Raspberry” (“Razzies”) abusive award for nominating twelve-year-old Ryan Kiera Armstrong (“Firestarter”). “I don’t like it. Because she’s younger and it’s bullying,” Barrymore said on CBS Mornings. She was relieved that many people had criticized the nomination.
