Bill Murray gives old friend Harold Ramis ad-lib Oscar shoutout
Bill Murray, a presenter at the Oscars, had a short, fittingly ad-libbed, tribute to his old friend Harold Ramis. While giving out the cinematography Oscar with Amy Adams, Murray gave a shoutout to his friend after the actual nominees’ names were read – to warm applause in the crowd. Nice touch.
Murray is a national treasure, another gift from Chicago to the world. But the fan favorite and professional party crasher showed up to the red carpet for the Academy Awards looking a little like age is catching up to him – as it does to us all.
With all the remembrances of Harold Ramis in the headlines of late, we’ve all been reminded of the greatness Murray and Ramis were capable of. Here’s hoping Bill is OK – it’s likely been a rough week as he said goodbye to his friend.
