First, I watched the show. It’s not so much that Spellings did poorly, as McKean did great. Just because he played Squiggy and David St. Hubbins does not mean he’s an idiot. His improvised work in the Christopher Guest mockumentaries tells me that he’s actually very smart. He proved that last night. Second, it seemed to me that Spellings lost ground on the pop culture categories. I think that an actor has something of an advantage over a bureaucrat when the category is movie quotes.
