"She wants to get the word out for her performance in David E. Kelley’s ABC crime-drama Big Sky, and the odds are stacked against her," Dave Canfield says of the actress. "She says she cannot afford a publicist, and the Emmy FYC ads can run upward of five figures. Because she was billed a guest star, she lacks the backing of Big Sky’s studio, 20th Television, despite netting strong reviews and appearing in more episodes than some series regulars. With decades of similarly unsung appearances in award-winning programs behind her, Smith is finally asking for our consideration. She’s proud of her work. It helps that the work is worthy."
