Bill Murray took the opportunity to give a quick nod to his late friend Harold Ramis Sunday night while presenting at the 86th Annual Academy Awards.
Murray and Best Actress nominee Amy Adams teamed up to present the award for Best Cinematography, but the comedian snuck in his own contender after naming the other nominees.
"Oh, we forgot one," Murray said. "Harold Ramis, for 'Caddyshack,' 'Ghostbusters,' and 'Groundhog Day.'"
Ramis, who starred in many movies with Murray but also made a career out of directing
, died last week of complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare illness that causes a person's blood vessels to swell. He was 69.
"Harold Ramis and I together did the 'National Lampoon Show' off Broadway, 'Meatballs,' 'Stripes,' 'Caddyshack,' 'Ghostbusters,' and 'Groundhog Day,'" Murray said in a statement last week. "He earned his keep on this planet. God bless him."
