Uncle Scoopy's Fun House at scoopy.net is a daily internet e-zine dedicated to keeping its readers abreast and abuttock of the latest in celebrity nudity.

Having produced a new dated edition every single day since 1995, it may be the oldest continuously updated blog still in existence. It's part of the Scoopy universe of sites, which includes The Movie House, French Cinema Nudity,  and Other Crap.

In December of each year, the Fun House runs a members' poll to select the best nude performances among that year's releases.

This year's competition was open to films and TV shows which were released in 2015, or other nude scenes not eligible before 2015. On this page Scoop and the members present the poll results, our equivalent of the Oscars, as the most popular nude performances of 2015.

The linked film clips are hosted at various places this year, and occupy more than a gig of storage space.

Overview of our 17th annual list:

We usually know approximately how things will turn out before the poll actually happens. Last year we knew that Scarlett Johansson and Alexandra Daddario would be the top two, and the only drama involved which would emerge supreme. 2015 was not like that. There were 45 scenes on the ballot, and only one of the women involved had been on the ballot the previous year, and that was Keri Russell with only rear exposure each year, so nobody's established star power was capable of overwhelming the field. Not only was there no single star to stand above the rest, but there was no single scene which stood out either. It was a diverse field, and the championship was, to use a sports phrase, anybody's ballgame. I myself could not decide between several contenders.  Alicia Vikander certainly came storming out of nowhere to make an impression on this year's list. She not only won the voting for one film, but she also earned another place on the list for a second film, and both of those films were nominated for Golden Globes.

While some of the names near the bottom of the list are familiar, the top ten consisted almost entirely of faces new to the list. Not a single one appeared in the top ten in the previous two years, and only Sarah Silverman had ever appeared in the top ten before. Many of the women in the top ten were long-time TV performers who had never previously done any nudity.

In my opinion, a few scenes could have gotten more enthusiasm from the voters. Madalina Ghenea, Olivia Chenery and Sarah Hay could easily have been in my personal top ten rather than Rosabell Sellers, Emily Kinney and Sarah Silverman. A few other scenes suffered from coming out too late in the year, or being unable to reach the immense American audience, thus failing to gather steam. Bel Powley could have been much higher on this list, given that she did substantial nudity in a highly respected film. Three other possible contenders fell off the list entirely (the two women in Love, Freya Mavor in La dame dans l'auto aves des lunettes en un fusil and the tandem of Cecile de France and Izia Higelin in La Belle Saison).

On the other hand, the top seven are all solid entries, even if there is no "perfect storm" caused by the alignment of a major star and groundbreaking exposure.


Liv Tyler in "The Leftovers"

season two, episode three

This vote is really a tip of the cap to Liv's past. There is minimal nudity, and she's no longer the fresh-faced ingenue who impressed us so deeply in Stealing Beauty in 1996, nor the sex kitten who aroused us five years later in One Night at McCool's, nor the cool beauty we loved in Lord of the Rings.

But she's still Liv Tyler, dammit, and she's removing her panties.

Karen Hassan in "The Vikings"

season three, episode ten (uncensored version)

This is one of the three entries on this year's list which featured some B&D, the others being 50 Shades of Grey and Bound, and this is the only one from a TV production.

Be wary of buying a season DVDs for Vikings, by the way. Make sure you know what you are getting. The version aired in the USA is not always the same as what they see overseas.

Alicia Vikander in The Danish Girl

5.7 at IMDb, 71% at Rotten Tomatoes

Alicia pulled off the rare double entry on this years list, including the top spot (see below).

Do you remember that Halle Berry pulled that off in 2001 in ever more impressive fashion? She took first place that year and her nearest competitor was - Halle Berry!

Nicole Kidman in Strangerland

5.2 at IMDb, 35% positive reviews

It is interesting to peruse the historical chart of the poll's results throughout the sixteen years of its existence (see the bottom of the page). Many of the women from the very first year are forgotten or out of the nudity game, but one woman on that first list also did a full frontal this year - that would be the esteemed Ms. Kidman. Even more impressive is the fact that if there had been a poll in 1986, going back another thirteen years, she might have been a contender on that one as well, for her performance in Windrider. That makes 29 years between her first nude scene and her last - and she's still in her forties, and looks so good that it seems she can keep going for a long time.

Madalina Diana Ghenea in Youth

7.5 at IMDb, 75% positive reviews

I mentioned in the summary that I believe this scene to be underrated. This is a respected movie directed by Paolo Sorrentino (director of the Oscar-winning film The Great Beauty), featuring major stars (Michael Caine, Jane Fonda, Harvey Keitel and Rachel Weisz). Moreover, the young Romanian actress is a spectacular beauty, very credibly cast in the part of Miss Universe,  doing total nudity in good light.

That ought to add up to something better than 16th place. If the list had been mine alone to construct, I would certainly have placed it in the top ten, possibly in the top five. In fact, I have no strong argument against those who felt it was #1.

Lola Le Lann in Un Moment d'Engarement

6.3 at IMDb, no reviews at RT

The film is a remake of a movie of the same name  released in 1977 and directed by Claude Berri. Cassel and François Cluzet reprise the roles played by Jean-Pierre Marielle  and Victor Lanoux  at the time, while Lola takes over the role originally played by Agnès Soral.

Thanks to a great audition with Vincent Cassel, Lola won the role despite no previous acting experience, and to date she has not been cast again.

By the way - the beautiful 19-year-old French actress has a twin sister!


Bel Powley in Diary of a Teenage Girl

7.2 at IMDb, 94% positive reviews

Here's another underrated performance.

This film received almost universal praise from the critics. Both it and its young female star have received numerous awards and nominations from various societies of critics, with Bel's nominations encompassing a wide range of achievement, including: "Most Promising Performer" (Chicago Film Critics), "Best Actress" (Detroit Film Critics, K.C. Film Critics and Gotham Award), "Pauline Kael Breakout Award" (Florida Film Critics), "Best Female Lead" (Independent Spirit Awards), and "Best Lead Actress" (Indiewire).

Yeah, that, and she's very naked.

Keri Russell in "The Americans"

season three, episodes three, seven and eleven

For the second year in a row, Keri has graced us with excellent, clear views of her beautiful backside, thus earning a spot on the list. I believe she might win it if she turned around.

My only question is "Why did she wait so long?" She will be 40 in March. Where was this daring when she was 25?

Dianna Agron in Bare

4.7 at IMDb, 33% positive reviews

Most of us were surprised to see Dianna do a topless scene, given the relatively family-friendly nature of her TV series, "Glee."

All I can say is "Keep up the good work."


Olivia Chenery in Legacy

4.3 at IMDb, no positive reviews

My vote counts the same as everyone else's, so I don't get to influence the selection as much as I'd like, but this is the scene I voted for.

She didn't place very high because nobody really knows who she is, very few people saw the movie, and those who saw it generally despised it. I understand all that, but I loved her work anyway.

Her multiple nude scenes are funny; she's gorgeous; she's totally naked; and there are plenty of lightbulbs nearby.

Sarah Hay in "Flesh and Bone"

episodes one, two, three and six

This is a TV series about the competitive world of ballet, and Sarah is a real-life ballerina.

I've been to a few ballets here and there, and I don't remember seeing many dancers with that kind of chest. I would think she might face balance problems and back strain - but then again a don't know jack straws about ballet. The only Tutu I know anything about is a South African Bishop.


Emily Kinney in "Masters of Sex"

season three, episodes nine and ten

I am not able to explain the presence of the Emily Kinney scenes in the top ten.

My best guess is that Emily is a star of the cult hit "The Walking Dead," and the fans of that show were really stoked to see her take off her top.


Rosabell Laurenti Sellers in "Game of Thrones"

season five, episode seven

Speaking of cult hits, "Game of Thrones" is one that is capable of driving a topless woman to a prominent spot on the list. Sellers is a real fox with a great figure, but this scene is too brief, too dark and has too little exposure to be a top ten finisher.

Then again, I know even less than Jon Snow, and he knows nothing.


Sarah Silverman in I Smile Back

5.9 at IMDb, 54% positive reviews

There are two accomplished comic performers who made the top ten this year in dramatic roles. Sarah has been a popular stand-up and sketch comic, as you probably know, and is now carving out a niche as a serious actress.

Back in 2012 she took the very top spot on the list with her full-frontal exposure in Take This Waltz, and she returned to the list with this daring role which required topless exposure and an anal sex scene.


Dakota Johnson in 50 Shades of Grey

4.1 at IMDb, 25% positive reviews

This was both one of the best nude scenes of the year and one of the most disappointing. Given the nature of the source material, we could have expected, and in fact were expecting, much more female nudity.

What stood in our way is the target market for this film. The passionate admirers of this book, and therefore the likely purchasers of movie tickets, are women, meaning that major female nudity would have created at best minimal potential for additional sales, and may even have kept women from the box office if the nudity had been too explicit.


Kristen Wiig in Welcome to Me

5.9 at IMDb, 72% positive reviews

I will admit right now that I had a skeptical attitude toward this movie. I didn't doubt that Wiig can act, because her type of comedy always has consisted of deadpan caricatures of common female archetypes, often women who are excessively self-absorbed. In essence, her comic performances were always dramatic acting with an overlay of hyperbole. All she needed to do to become a good dramatic actress was to take down the hyperbole to the normal range. This role was right in her wheelhouse, and she did fine, as I expected.

What surprised me was that the 40-ish performer went all the way with the nudity and looked absolutely great naked. Not just good, or good for her age, but great.

I tip my hat.


Eliza Coupe in "Casual"

episodes six and seven

Eliza Coupe falls into the same category as her fellow top-ten finishers Emily Kinney, Sasha Alexander and Charisma Carpenter - long time TV stars who have never gotten naked on camera before.  Eliza spent two years on "Scrubs" just as the show's popularity was winding down. When that series was cancelled, she then put in three years on "Happy Endings."

Those five years developed a substantial appetite for the nudity she finally delivered on "Casual."


Charisma Carpenter in Bound

3.4 at IMDb, 11% positive reviews

It has been a long time since she played Cordelia Chase on "Buffy," and most people had despaired of ever seeing her naked. Then, amazingly, after dodging nudity throughout her career, she chose age 44 to strip down for kinky bondage scenes in a poorly regarded cheapie film, kind of a grade-Z knockoff of 50 Shades.

So she got her paycheck

And we got to see her naked.

No objections.


Sasha Alexander in "Shameless"

season five, episodes nine and eleven

I propose a toast to either Rizzoli or Isles finally getting naked! I know she's one of the two - the one who isn't Angie Harmon. Like Charisma Carpenter, she waited until her 40s to get naked on screen.

Her family is Serbian and her real name is Suzana S. Drobnjaković. No wonder she uses a stage name.

Trivia: her mother-in-law is Sophia Loren.


 Ruby Rose in "Orange is the New Black"

season three, episode nine

A 29-year-old Aussie, Ruby is probably better know for everything else in her life but acting. She's a model, DJ, recording artist, TV presenter and former MTV VJ. Her accomplishments in those fields, substantial though they may be, are often outweighed by the public's fascination with her gender fluidity, bipolar disorder and tattoos.

All that adds up to the fact that she was the fifth most searched person on Google in 2015, just below Donald Trump and just above Charlie Sheen.

Trump and Sheen? That is some heavy-duty pop culture awareness right there! It's no wonder she was the top TV performer in our poll.


Alicia Vikander in Ex Machina

7.7 at IMDb, 92% positive reviews

The slim Swedish actress is probably the breakthrough performer of 2015, and that has little or nothing to do with her nudity, as great as that is.

In December, just before this poll began, The Telegraph wrote that she's  now "the actress to watch" because of her acting ability and obvious popularity with casting directors. I'm certainly ready to watch her - especially if she continues to dress like she does to the right.


The polls have been running since the end of 1999, but the site started in November of 1995 and has been updated every single day since. So why wait until the end of the year? See all the nude scenes when they happen, in the highest quality available. And catch all the paparazzi shots as well!
And don't forget the archives, which include more than a million pictures of naked celebrities and tens of thousands of film clips, most in high definition, with more added daily. There's no better value on the internet than an annual subscription to scoopy.net for less than thirty cents per day, and it has been that way for more than 20 years.
