2015 Best Line of Dialogue Winner

Bridge of Spies


This was kind of a strange comparison to make.  The other four nominees here are, at their hearts, rather jokey lines while this winner is an impassioned speech about civil liberties.  It does kind of get dangerously close to being preachy but it also does a great job of deflating that pretension and lays out this argument for what it means to be an American in a really simple and convincing way that pretty much anyone can get behind while also establishing what will be motivating the character going forward.
