In 2006, the episode received five Primetime Emmy Award nominations at the 58th Primetime Emmy Awards. Creator Alan Ball was nominated for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Directing for a Drama series; it was also nominated for Outstanding Art Direction for a Single-Camera Series and Outstanding Hairstyling for a Series. It won for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup for a Series, Miniseries, Movie, or Special. TV Guide ranked the episode #22 on its list of “TV’s Top 100 Episodes of All Time” and also named it one of the best TV moments of the decade. Entertainment Weekly put it on its end-of-the-decade, “best-of” list, saying, “Wrapping up an acclaimed show is pretty much a no-win proposition (e.g., The Sopranos). But Alan Ball’s 2005 coda distilled all that we'd learned about life and death after five seasons with the Fishers.” In 2011, the finale was ranked #8 on the TV Guide Network special, TV’s Most Unforgettable Finales.
