Does anyone agree that Deligne's proof of Weil conjecture, Riemann hypothesys for algebraic varieties over finite fields is the crown jewel of math?

Why not Andrew Wiles’s proof of the Taniyama–Shimura conjecture, which relates elliptic curves over $\mathbb Q$ to modular forms, for semistable elliptic curves?

I think Gauss wasn't found of Fermat's last theorem and Kummer said it's an isolated curiosity. Don't get me wrong. I love it. But maybe Deligne is more comprehensive and important than Wiles.
