Bill Murray thanks the dead at Spike's Scream Awards

bill-murrayImage Credit: Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic.comThere might be a handful of people in Hollywood who aren’t amused every time Bill Murray wraps himself in Ghostbusters glory. Probably the same people that desperately want to make the Ghostbusters 3 movie that Murray refuses to endorse. Fortunately, we’re not those people, so kudos to Spike TV for locating Murray and presenting him with the Best Cameo movie award for his work on Zombieland. No matter that the film came out more than a year ago. Rules were meant to be broken. Especially for Bill Murray, and especially-especially for Peter Venkman. Video after the jump.

Murray barely left anyone out of his “undead” tribute, and I thought it was only appropriate that he saved Mickey Rourke for last. Poor, poor, Mickey. He was the last to know.

    Holy crap, I never thought I’d see him in the costume again! I’m completely geeking out right now.

      ME TOO! I hope they do Ghostbusters III!!!

  • DavidJ

    Umm, why the heck isn’t Spike rerunning this? Freakin MTV reruns their awards shows 50 times a week.

    • Chappel

    I hope I am wrong about this, but have been wondering for a while whether Bill Murray may be ill or something and has been staying quiet about it. Let’s just hope his name doesn’t join the list of the dead anytime soon. That would break my heart.

    • “Me” wants to know

      Why did Bill Murray thank the dead people who he thanked? Really want to know: Was this Ghostubsters costume a hint or just a thrill for fans?

    I’d like to take a big swing at Bill Murray. His back-handed “thank you” to the non-acting consumers of popular culture who are “stone-cold dead” only to come to life “just when we need you” was insulting. I will never again knowingly contribute a dime to any project he’s involved with. FU, Todd.

    Lighten up, Francis.

    If there has to be a Ghostbusters 3, I hope they’ll dump the Venkman ghost idea. A dead Venkman sounds like a bummer, not to mention lame.
