Thirty years and a couple of weeks ago, Harold Ramis, Dan Akroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson unleashed Ghostbusters onto the world.  The film went on to gross over $240 million domestic, beating out Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom for 1984’s top slot at the box office.  A few years later, I was born.  And while everyone else on the playground fought over the role of Peter Venkman, I grew up calling dibs on Winston Zeddmore.

Last Thursday, Collider attended the 40th Annual Saturn Awards and I got to meet one of my childhood role models, (even if the only thing he taught me was how to break my mother’s vacuum cleaner).  I then promptly turned into a Chris Farley-esque babbling idiot spewing, one “Remember that one time when you” question after the next.  Fortunately, Mr. Hudson was gracious and kind, answering questions about everything from Ghostbusters 2’s bad rap, to annoying fan catcalls, to his vision of Ghostbusters 3 and even Ayn Rands influence on the franchise.  Hit the jump to watch.
