* Jordan Cronenweth get's for staying with the film and continuing to work on it despite his failing health due to Parkinson's. What he delivered is considered to be his best work by everyone, [[Main/CrowningMomentofHeartwarming including his own son Jeff]].

* The entire ending sequence, where Roy is chasing Deckard through that creepy building, lights flashing, and the freaky sounds(howling like a wolf) and dialogue on Roy's part. Then the climax up on the roof, even Deckard was reduced to trembling. That scene embodies a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* AwesomeMusic:
** Most of the soundtrack by Vangelis. It is an excellent example of how to use electronica intelligently. Above all of these, however, is the main theme of the movie, played over the ending credits.
** The contrast between the various "official" versions and the famous "workprint" version of the scene where Rachael watches Deckard try to clean himself up after [[CurbStompBattle almost getting beaten to death]] is a great illustration of how music works in movies:
*** In the workprint, creepy dissonant noise music highlights that Deckard is vulnerable and Rachael could easily kill him at that point if she decided it was her best chance at survival and freedom.
*** In the later "normal" cuts, romantic music implies Rachael feels sorry for Deckard and protective of him. The entire meaning of the scene is completely different, even though nothing changed except the music.

* Roy Batty's death soliloquy. Quite possibly the CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Rutger Hauer as an actor, too, considering that he ad-libbed it.
** It's so good, it bears quoting:
