AFT Awards: Best Ending

This is the twenty-fourth category of the 13th 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.

The winner:
Parasite traveled an incredible road and suggested a hopeful, positive resolution only to return to the firm reality that perception and attitude can make all the difference.

Other nominees:
Queen and Slim finished with a powerful, haunting conclusion for its main characters and more transformative, lasting implications felt by those who knew and didn’t know them. The Tomorrow Man achieved some degree of serenity for its two protagonists, allowing them to accept the world in which they lived and embrace the unpredictable in a humorous and endearing way.
