A brief note on the annual "Best Nude Scenes" award

A couple of you have written to ask me about the Best Nude Scene tradition, which is usually going hot and heavy before Christmas. I've been dawdling on this intentionally. Not that I'm being lazy. To the contrary, I'd rather get this laborious effort completed before Christmas so I can be lazy during the holidays. The problem is that we have not yet seen film clips from at least three, possibly four, scenes which are sure to finish in the top ten.

These three for sure. All are Oscar bait. All have excellent nudity.

  1. Kate Winslet in The Reader. We have not even seen stills yet!
  2. Marisa Tomei in The Wrestler. We've seen one collage, but no clips.
  3. Zoe Kazan in Revolutionary Road. Same deal as Tomei. One collage. That's it.

Maybe this one:

  1. Charlize Theron in The Burning Plain. I haven't seen anything except the brief nudity in the Italian trailer, so I don't know how much exposure there is, but Charlize is a superstar, so any nudity from her is memorable. The film may or may not get a theatrical release in North America during Christmas week, or ever for that matter, but it has been playing in Italy for the past month and a half. It opened #5 in Italy on November 7th

So I keep waiting for clips or screeners to emerge because the competition would not accurately reflect the year's best scenes unless at least the first three above are included.



  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Aria and Friends

Clips and caps from the quintessence of strip and wiggle disks, Aria & Friends.  Aria's friends turn out to be Penthouse Pet Aimee Sweet and pornstars Goldie McHorn, Nikita Denise and Mariah Milano.  As you would expect their wiggling reveals more than a modicum of pink and a wink of the ol' brown eye.  Julie Andrade comes along for the ride. Hers is a more demure performance, if you can call dancing starkers demure.  Also included is a clip of Pantera, who also appears to be a pornstar of some sort.  BTW, the caps were done by Master Tuna a long, long time ago - I stitched together two or more of them to make a single collage for each gal (except Pantera).

Film Clips

This first group from Surfer, Dude is a repeat from yesterday. I forgot the links to the film clips!

Four clips which reveal the women from a new coming-of-age indie film, Orgies and the Meaning of Life: Julie Hays, Lindsay Lauren, Jackie Mah, and Kathy Tinder.

Alexandra Vujcic in Dear Claudia. Great scene, but dubbed in German.

Another favorite dubbed into German: Anna Forrest in Blue Thunder.

A slo-mo version of Marion Cotillard's beaver shot in Taxi. (Cotillard is the woman who won the best actress Oscar by playing Edith Piaf.)
