Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.
Five years after the events of the first film, the Ghostbusters have been plagued by lawsuits and court orders, and their once-lucrative business is bankrupt. However, when Dana begins to have ghost problems again, the boys come out of retirement only to be promptly arrested. The Ghostbusters discover that New York is once again headed for supernatural doom, with a river of ectoplasmic slime bubbling beneath the city and an ancient sorcerer attempting to possess Dana's baby and be born anew. Can the Ghostbusters quell the negative emotions feeding the otherworldly threat and stop the world from being slimed? Written by

A scene of Egon and Ray experimenting on the bowl of slime, with them wearing head devices with multiple wires connecting to the bowl (which would have gone before the scene with the 'dancing toaster'), was filmed but not used in the final edit, but a shot from the scene was a commonly used publicity still for the film.

Vigo possesses the Museum curator to capture Oscar for him so he can get out of the painting and into the baby's body. But despite the Ghostbusters retrieving the baby when they arrive at the museum and preventing the possession, Vigo is able to exit the painting and retrieve him himself anyway. Since Vigo is gaining power the closer it gets to Midnight when he can actually transfer his soul into Oscar, it's not far fetched to believe that this combined with his actual near possession of the baby could've given him enough power to briefly escape the painting to defeat the Ghostbusters.

I spent an hour in my room last night talking to Fiorella LaGuardia, and he's been dead for forty years. Now where are the Ghost Busters?

Ghostbusters 2 is a fair sequel that finds the boys in grey five years later, not doing too good. Of course, it's not long before evil spirits pop up again in Manhattan and they're back doing what they do best. What makes this one work as well as the first is the relationship between the main characters. Bill Murray gets the great one liners again, and his scenes with Sigourney Weaver are just as goods as the first film. Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis provide enough silly techno jargon and odd references to slime and ghosts to keep you smiling. Still, you can't beat a 100 foot marshmallow man in Manhattan.
