There are great scenes, and then there are great scenes.

Sometimes iconic movie moments emerge from great storytelling or incredible action, and sometimes filmmakers go the extra mile to provide their actors with a platform to showcase their skills.

These 10 movies all carved out scenes devoted to actors strutting their stuff, be it in the form of singing, dancing, putting themselves in harm's way or, you know, maybe actually just acting.
