The voting is closed. The people have spoken.
The vote took place in three parts this year.
In part one, there was a full month of nominations. (In case you have forgotten the scenes, there is a link to each of them on this list.)
In part two, each voter ranked every selection from top to bottom. Those choices were listed at random, separate on each ballot. That step determined the significant vote-getters and the initial seeding for the finals. Three additional late arrivals or omissions were added between the ranking stage and the final vote – and one of those eventually finished in the top ten.
In the finals, voters chose their one and only favorite for the year. The results were pretty clear. There was a definite #1 and #2. Numbers three through thirteen provided a smooth, gradual continuum, then there was a big drop-off between #13 and #14. There were some surprises in the final results, as certain scenes gained or lost support based upon the voters’ willingness to apply their one and only vote to a given scene. Modest nude scenes with popular figures like Elle Fanning and Alexandra Daddario, were replaced in the final top ten by great nude scenes by lesser-known actresses.
The results are shown below. My full recap is here.
