The Academy Awards may be mocked by many but in Hollywood, they are still the standard every actress strives for. To be an Oscar winner means being remembered, no matter how the rest of your career goes. Sure, you can argue how deserving (or not) some winners are but the point remains that to have an Oscar on your mantle is the dream of any woman in Hollywood and willing to do what it takes to get there. That includes showing off your body if it gets you attention and a bit more ahead.
Of course, women in the Golden Age of Hollywood didn’t have to worry about that but it’s more common today. Some are able to resist it; for all their experience and major hits, Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock have avoided scenes in the buff (Roberts using a body double for Pretty Woman and other flicks). Also, while she was exposed in the 2014 celebrity hacking scandal, Jennifer Lawrence has said she has no plans to bare it all on film. However, that still leaves plenty of examples among the current crop of Oscar winners who have provided some very memorable scenes in the buff, so many that it’s hard to count. Many occurred before their wins and before they became famous while a few waited until after the had a statue to give it their all on film. With the awards coming up, here are the 20 hottest moments by Oscar winners where they bared it all, boasting more than just a gold statue to stand out.

Trying to pick the best nude scene of Jolie’s career is a hard task. Since her debut, the wild child has shown no shame in showing off her stunning body with multiple tattoos although ironically, she didn’t bare it all in her Oscar-winning turn in Girl, Interrupted. She’s matured a bit with motherhood and segued into being a top director as well but Jolie still retains a sexual aura few can touch. Perhaps the best showcase was the 1998 HBO film that launched Jolie’s career. As a breakout super-model, Jolie showed it all off for a bit posing for a photographer in the buff and then engaging in a very hot tryst with Elizabeth Mitchell’s assistant. That leads to a talk in the hallway where Jolie is totally naked (“don’t change the subject”) and then them in a shower together. It won Jolie a Golden Globe and pushed her to prominence and despite how she’s “matured” since, most remember her as the lady who’s at her best when oh so naughty.
