Uncle Scoopy's Top 20 Nude Scenes of 2021


For the 23rd consecutive year, the readers of Uncle Scoopy's Fun House and related sites have chosen their favorite nude scenes.

It was no contest this year. There was a definite number one and a definite number two. Numbers three through thirteen formed a smooth continuum, and then there was a large drop off between thirteen and fourteen.

The voting took place in stages.

In stage one, nominations were accepted from all readers of Other Crap for a full month. That list also includes links to sample images from each nominee.

In stage two, all voters were allowed to rank all nominees from top to bottom, and a seeded list of finalists was created from the results.

In stage three, voters were asked to name one and only one of the choices as their selection for the top nude performance of the year. The numerical results of the balloting can be found here.

It was truly an excellent year for nude scenes, but the poll doesn't necessarily reflect the quality of the scenes in the same order I would rank them objectively. Voters also take into account the familiarity of the scene, the popularity of the actress,  whether the actress was breaking new ground in her nudity career and just how much people wanted to see her naked.

Hypothetically, if the same actress had performed every scene, I would rank them as follows: (1) Mothering Sunday; (2) The Land; (3) Titane.

But hypothetical results are not the same as actuals. Those films and their stars were just too obscure to rule the day, and even Odessa Young's marathon nudity in Mothering Sunday barely snuck into the top ten. Our voters just love Sydney Sweeney - and who can blame them?

I have to say, though, that every nude appearance in the 2021 top ten is an excellent one, and I don't think that has ever happened before. Normally at least one mediocre scene sneaks onto the list on the strength of its star's popularity, but this year the most familiar and most popular stars fell to #11 or lower. Elle Fanning, Alexandra Daddario, Halsey, Heather Graham and Helen Hunt got some votes, not not enough to edge out the excellent scenes in the top ten.

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 we added those four additional years with "retro" polls to complete the Scoopy Era. For the purpose of further studies and comparisons, see the 27-year summary of the top tens, or simply search a name from the whole collection.

But 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.
