The only reason writer and director Harold Ramis never won an Oscar is that the Academy obviously has its categories wrong.

It’s high time that a “made the audience feel better” prize was created in his honor.

Ramis died Monday at age 69, leaving a body of work that will get laughs from generations to come.

The interactive Muckety map above shows his movies, along with actors who appeared in at least two of his films.

Bill Murray leads the group, with six projects, including some of Ramis’s best: “Groundhog Day,” “Caddyshack,” “Ghostbusters” and “Ghostbusters II,” “Stripes” and “Meatballs.”

As Ramis once said, “Nothing reinforces a professional relationship more than enjoying success together.”

That’s not to say that Ramis and Murray always clicked. Their rapport during the filming of “Groundhog Day” has been described as “two brothers who weren’t getting along.”

Murray issued a statement about Ramis’s death on Monday. “He earned his keep on this planet,” Murray said. “God bless him.”
