Awesome: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
  • Ron and Veronica's fight in the newsroom, which escalated from petty insults after Veronica pushed Ron's Berserk Button and told him he had stupid hair. Ron tries to get the upper hand by throwing Veronica over one of the desks but she quickly takes control after Ron maces himself in the face, whereby she then rips off a TV antennae and starts beating him with it like a cattle prod.
  • The epic street fight with all the other channels.
    "I stabbed a man in the heart!!!"
    "I saw that! Brick killed a guy! Did you throw a trident?"
    "Yeah, there were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident!"
    "Brick, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should find a safe house or a relative close by; lay low for a while, because you're probably wanted for murder."
  • Ron breathing fire out of a flute during his solo. Why? Because it looks awesome.
  • Here's a meta example: Paul Gerke, an Idaho sportscaster, got a moment of Awesome for his 2013 Halloween broadcast when he dressed up as Ron Burgundy, and stayed in character the entire broadcast, mixing famous quotes with some clever improv. Don't act like you're not impressed.
