2019 By The Moments
We have a decade list going, but that shouldn't supplant the annual tradition, imo. Also imo, there is only one choice for moment of the year.

SPACE MONKEY ATTACK!!!! -  the very, very serious meditation on the human condition Ad Astra
Mr. Rogers breaking the 4th wall and looking right at the theater in A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. He's asked the Matthew Rhys character to spend a minute thinking of all of the loved ones that he's had in his life. Suddenly, he's asking the viewer to do the same. It's a moment of pure silence and personal reflection for the theater. Really quite moving.

ANGEL HAS FALLEN: "I'm glad it was you."
THE IRISHMAN: Sheeran calls Hoffa's widow and can barely keep himself composed. Possibly the single best minute of acting from the entire year.
The finales of Midsommar and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood were my favorites. That’s some cathartic violence!

Oh, and the scene in the Gold Room in Doctor Sleep. Blew me away.

And Waltzing Matilda in the Deadwood film.
