We all agree that Avatar is an emotional movie and we have shared our thoughts about why some of the scenes are so emotional as they are. But if you really had to pick one scene over all the others, which would it be? We have here 12 options for you to choose.

The winning emotional moment will be expanded into an article or merged into another, and the voting closes on March 1st, 2010. If there's already an article about that scene, like The Destruction of The Hometree, the runner-up will be expanded.
