22 Movie Endings That Are So Well-Executed, They Deserve An Academy Award All On Their Own





1. Call Me by Your Name (2017)



Was it nominated for a (real) Academy Award? Yes. Won: Best Adapted Screenplay Nominee: Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures (Original Song) Sufjan Stevens - "Mystery of Love"

"The fireplace scene — it’s so amazing. It’s literally four minutes of him crying in front of a fireplace with 'Visions of Gideon' playing in the background, yet it hits you hard. It forces you to recount all the events in the movie and realize how much Oliver affected Elio in that one summer. Timothée Chalamet’s Oscar nomination was well deserved. He was truly amazing in the film."



4. Gone Girl (2014)


Was it nominated for a (real) Academy Award? Yes Nominee: Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role: Rosamund Pike

"When Amy creepily looks up at Nick while lying on his lap. The scene mirrors the beginning of the movie, but in a way more scaring way."



10. Moonlight (2016)


Was it nominated for a (real) Academy Award? Yes. Won: Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role: Mahershala Ali, Best Adapted Screenplay. Nominee: Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures (Original Score) Nicholas Britell, Best Achievement in Film Editing, Best Achievement in Cinematography, Best Achievement in Directing, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role: Naomie Harris

"This one had an amazing ending. It left me in such an emotional state of mind. Chiron saying, 'You were the only man that ever touched me. I haven’t really touched anyone since,' brought tears to my eyes. And then baby Chiron on the beach, under the moonlight, looking at the camera was perfect. I’m emotional just typing it."



16. There Will Be Blood (2007)


Was it nominated for a (real) Academy Award? Yes. Won: Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role: Daniel Day-Lewis, Best Achievement in Cinematography Nominee: Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Achievement in Directing, Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay, Best Achievement in Film Editing, Best Achievement in Art Direction, Best Achievement in Sound Editing

"This has one of the the most satisfying endings of any movie I've ever seen. The 'I drink your milkshake' speech, Eli getting his just deserts, and then Daniel sitting there in the mess: 'I'm finished.' Every time I watch it, it gets better. Perfection."



21. Se7en (1995)


Was it nominated for a (real) Academy Award? Yes Nominee: Best Film Editing.

"This has the most amazing ending, bar none. Brad Pitt screaming, 'What’s in the box?!' and slowly descending into wrath, and Morgan Freeman begging him not to fall into the killer’s trap. So well executed."
