Harold Ramis passed away today at the age of 69. The actor, director and writer had an immeasurable impact on modern comedy, but he was perhaps best known to audiences as Dr. Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters. In addition to being a well-known comedian, Ramis influenced comedy behind-the-scenes. He was the director of now legendary comedies like Caddyshack and Groundhog Day and wrote the scripts for films such as Ghostbusters and Meatballs. Contemporary comedy heavyweights such as Judd Apatow have cited him as a major comedy influence and Ramis even appeared in a cameo as Seth Rogen‘s father in Knocked Up.

By this time next week Matthew McConaughey might have an Oscar. That’ll likely sound strange if you still think of him as David Wooderson, the ambiguously aged keg party enthusiast from Dazed and Confused, or as a naked conga drummer. (Let the record state that MM still plays, he’s just more careful about closing his windows these days.) Over the last 18 months, McConaughey has delivered the best work of his career, earning a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award and proving that it’s never too late to expect the unexpected–even from a guy whose personal mantra is just to keep on livin’.
