27 thoughts on “The top nude scenes/performances of 2019

  1. Is there any way to randomise the order they appear in – it looks like scenes at the top have a bit of an advantage in the voting so far

  2. Would be nice if you could vote for a top 5 or top 10 maybe with weighted votes. Right now some of my favorites are at the bottom but i still voted for Sweeney cause i only had one vote.
    Seems a pretty complete list (?) Only one i am really missing is Lilliya Scarlett Reid.

    1. I agree. I think a 2-tiered vote would produce a better top 20. Round 1 everyone votes for their top 5 to produce the top 20, then a second round of voting to order the top 20 with only a single vote.

      I think we would get better scenes in the top 20, as opposed to just the most popular actresses.

      1. My goal is to produce a list which includes ONLY #1 choices. If a scene makes the final Top 20 list, many people thought it was the very best of the year. If I did a multiple choice, we could potentially get an overall winner that NOBODY thought was the #1 scene of the year, but it got a bunch of fourth place votes.

        The two-tier method would be better, but it would still result in a scene making the top 20 when absolutely nobody thought it was the top scene of the year. I hope to avoid that.

  3. I completely forgot about Kate Micucci in Easy. Oh well, it was unlikely to be one of the top scenes; but shame on me for forgetting.

      1. Her votes are legit, not bunched. Not all our voters are Americans. She is a huge star in Europe, possibly the hottest phenom since Laetitia Casta, so it was a big deal when she did the nude scenes in this film, kinda the European equivalent of Katie Holmes big. She has been top ten right from the beginning. In fact, at one time she had 100% of the votes. (I voted for her right after posting the poll.)

        I don’t care about the Katie Holmes phenomenon. I just think it was objectively the best nude performance of 2019, although I briefly considered voting for Noemie Merlant. I feel that Paula is beautiful and more naked, more often, and in better light than anyone else on the list. The pictured scene is just one of many in Never Look Away, albeit the best one.

        1. I live in Europe part of the year and saw her on TV there in “Bad Banks.” I didn’t get the impression she was that big a deal in Europe.

          1. Same deal as Katie Holmes (and other typical high finishers in our polls) – child star who got naked.

            Won a lot of cred for her work at 14 in The Poll Diaries, has kept piling up the awards ever since. She won the Best Actress Bambi last year for Bad Banks.

            (And Never Look Away received two Oscar nominations, including best cinematography.)

    1. The list should not encompass every nude scene. It is meant to list only those which might get a person’s one and only vote.

  4. Emma Stone in the “The Favourite” was one of this years highlights. Surprised she didn’t make this list.

  5. I really did not have a true favorite this year. I went with Terminator, because hey, nude fight scene!

  6. I kinda liked that Terminator scene as well. I voted for Paula Beer, who was my favorite nude performer – very naked and very beautiful in perfect light, but my favorite SCENE was actually the one with Karla Crome that gave new meaning to the expression “a flying fuck.” We see so many nude scenes every year that they usually fail to stand out, but that one got my attention.

    My second favorite was Marsha Stephanie Blake in Luce. Brief, but daring and powerful.

    When it came to the voting, neither of those scenes amounted to even a blip on the electoral radar.

  7. This is kinda like the whole discussion about the MVP vote: is it the best player, or is it the best player on a championship contender, or is the the player who means the most to a team’s success (even if the team is not very good).

    To me, there are three different categories for Best Nude scene. One is the Best Actual Scene(s) (lighting, explicitness, situation), as in, “OMG, every hot actress should do this scene”. Rosario Dawson in Trance. Eva Green in The Dreamers.

    Two: Best Body, the revealing of an incredible figure, often by a newcomer. Syndey Sweeney this year is one example.

    Three: The Yes, Finally! Award. There may be nothing particularly special about the scene per se, but it’s someone lots of people have been wanting to see (or maybe just a personal favorite of yours). Katie Holmes is the ultimate example here. I see this year’s Kate Mara vote in this category as well.

    Plenty of scenes certainly qualify in more than one category and then you have the rare Alexandra Daddario Sweep of all three.
