Oscars 2014: Bill Murray Recognizes Harold Ramis While Presenting Award (Video)

Oscars

As most of you already know, the world of motion pictures lost another one of the greats. Writer, Director, Actor, and all around entertainer Harold Ramis lost his battle with Autoimmune Inflammatory Vasculitis at the age of 69. Tonight, on a night when the stars gather to honor the best in their craft, it is no surprise that his name would come up.

Tonight, it was the job of actor Bill Murray and Amy Adams to present the Award for Best Achievement in Cinematography. While reading the nominees’ names, Bill Murray paused at the end turned to the camera for a touch shout-out to his good friend.

“Oh…we forgot one. Harold Ramis for Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, and Groundhog Day” he said.

Before excusing himself, his statement was met with roaring applause from the crowd.

Take a look for yourself at this touching moment on a night befitting one of the truly great entertainers who was taken from us too soon.

I can assure you, Ramis’ contributions to the world of film will be remembered for many years to come, and so they should.
