Bill Murray and Amy Adams were called upon to present the Academy Award for Best Cinematography in a Major Motion Picture at last night’s Oscars, and Murray used the opportunity to remember a late friend who recently passed away.
Before announcing the winner, Murray tossed in Harold Ramis’ name as the final nominee for the award. Ramis – the respected writer/director/actor who collaborated with Murray on films such as Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day and Caddyshack – passed away last week at age 69.
Murray’s off-the-cuff tribute was a great one, and one that received a great amount of applause from the star-studded audience. For anyone who was a fan of Ramis’ and Murray’s work, it was one of those “right in the feels” moments that they won’t soon forget.
