AFT Awards: Best Ending

This is the twenty-second category of the 11th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Click here to see previous years of this category. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them. Beware spoilers for the films pictured above.

Runner-up: The Big SickIngrid Goes West

The winner:
The Wedding Plan had to end in a way that do justice to its main character and her wild journey, and it was wonderful to see a winning nod to success that was clear to those with knowledge of its religious significance and just as subtly effective for everyone else.

Other nominees:
The Florida Project wasn’t going to provide its kids or adults with a happy ending, and that made the mad-dash to a nearby destination feel all the more dreamlike, one last chance to experience unfettered bliss for these children living in their own world. Darkest Hour gave its tremendous star a fabulous opportunity for a stirring final speech, extending the influence of his towering character well past the events of the film.
