What Movie Ending Was So Well Executed, You Almost Weren't Upset When The Movie Ended?

Don't cry because it's over, smile because HOLY HECK, that ending was good.

We all already know the importance of a well-done opening scene in a film...but the ending scene is equally — if not MORE — important. After all, you don't want your whole movie ruined by its trip across the finish line!

So with that in mind, what is a movie ending scene so satisfying — so well executed — it should've won the Academy Award for Best Movie Ending (if, ya know, that was a category)?

Paramount Pictures

And the movie as a whole doesn't have to be Oscarworthy...just the ending scene!

Maybe it's a classic, creepy ending — like the ending scene in Psycho (1960) — that caused you to lose sleep because of its perfection.

Perhaps it's something triumphant and heart-wrenching — like the ending scene of The Truman Show (1998) — that stuck with you long after the movie ended.

Or heck, maybe it was something most people wouldn't think of as ~Oscarworthy~ — like the shocking ending of Avengers: Infinity War (2018) — that made you believe it deserved an (albeit imaginary) Academy Award.

Marvel Studios
