“Harold Ramis was never even nominated formuch less awarded withan Oscar, which is outrageous, and a testament to how undervalued comedy is by the Academy.

A small memorial to the beloved actor/director/writer/comedian Harold Ramis has been placed at the 8th Hook and Ladder firehouse in TriBeCa. Candles, flowers, and a package of Twinkies were laid out in front of the firehouse to commemorate Ramis’ iconic role as Dr. Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters (1984), which was filmed there.
