The 7th Youth in Film Awards ceremony (now known as the Young Artist Awards), presented by the Youth in Film Association, honored outstanding youth performers under the age of 21 in the fields of film and television for the 1984-1985 season, and took place on December 15, 1985 at the Ambassador Hotel's historical Coconut Grove night club in Los Angeles, California.[1][2][3][4] Hosting the ceremony that year was 10-year-old Drew Barrymore.[3]

Established in 1978 by long-standing Hollywood Foreign Press Association member, Maureen Dragone, the Youth in Film Association was the first organization to establish an awards ceremony specifically set to recognize and award the contributions of performers under the age of 21 in the fields of film, television, theater and music.[1][5][6]

Conflicting reports indicates a conflict in information between the Young Artist Awards official website's list of winners for that year[4] and the Daily News of Los Angeles' list of winners published the day after the ceremony.[3] The Young Artist Award's official website states that - "The Internet Movie Database has been used to ensure correct information is maintained on this web site".[7] However, it should be noted that IMDb was launched in 1990 (five years after the 7th Youth in Film Awards ceremony was held) and is largely a user-generated website.
