Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
When Naomi recognizes one of the wrestlers from the ladies of wrestling on television as an old friend, she gets her friend to come to dinner. It turns out that she might have to forfeit because her wrestling partner had an injury. Naomi resist but decides to help her friend out by being her wrestling partner. Naomi and her friend are fine until her friend suffers an injury and Mama comes in. You can imagine how Mama looks in the hideous costume and wrestles with the big girls from the wrestling. This episode is your typical Mama's Family fare with the family and Iola who are interested in the ladies' wrestling. It was popular in syndication at the same time that Mama's Family was in syndication. I don't know the story behind this episode but I remember watching the ladies wrestling in Saturday afternoon and watching Mama's Family in the early evening on Saturday.
