British actress Naomie Harris has been nominated for an Oscar for her role as a crack-addicted mother in the 2016 indie drama Moonlight. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some other roles she's played in her career.
This show was a classic example of "not quite." A sitcom which concerned the relationships between 3 generations of women, it wasn't quite funny enough, didn't attract quite enough attention, and didn't quite survive through its original 13 episode order from ABC. Marie Osmond played a young single mother living and running a small coffee shop with her mother, played by Betty White. Ashley Williams played Marie's precocious (what else?) daughter. The cast was actually pretty good (yes, including Marie); I especially liked Amy Hill as a friend of the grandmother. She has played a surprising variety of characters on shows like "All American Girl" as Margaret Cho's grandmother (a role much older than the actress), "The Naked Truth" as an eccentric photographer, and "The Hughleys" as Pat Morita's lesbian daughter. Even if "Maybe This Time" had been good enough to succeed, it was likely doomed to cancellation anyway as it ran on ABC Saturday night in what has been a ratings graveyard for decades.
