2016 Best Line of Dialogue Winner

Hail Caesar


All of these lines had their strengths so ultimately I just went with the line that became the meme.  I didn’t love Hail Caesar (though I do wonder if I’ll like it better upon a rewatch, as I tend to with Coen Brothers movies) but this scene clearly stood out.  They somehow managed to pick the exact right wording to trip up a Texan movie star while still seeming like something simple enough to say over and over again over the course of the scene.
