Best move is the best one known, and brilliant in a new move you made.

GMproposedsolutions

I think the brilliant move should be awarded only after making the successive moves which warrants the move to be brilliant. If just so happened to have made the move and didn't follow through, there was no brilliance.

There's your non-human answer.

UltimateCreatorofBob

Very similar to my explanation.

Thank you for showing us you brilliant move. It is a good move that turned the game in a winning position.

ghost_of_pushwood

Aha, so it wasn't brilliant but merely good!

Kleopathra

Well, it is brilliant, I cannot really judge the difference. Anyway it turned the game into a winning position.

I've gotten brilliant moves a very small number of times and once was for a basic recapture in a blitz game. It wasn't a sacrifice or anything.

after looking at the analysis closer, I saw that it ha seen quite a follow up I had missed, but the "brilliant" move was the only reasonable option even if you didn't see the follow up.

I would imagine that best and brilliant refer to the same thing; however, I could be wrong.
