Gearing up for this weekend’s Academy Awards, Mr. Man has revealed the winners of the 6th Annual Manatomy Awards, recognizing the past year’s naked male achievements in film and TV.
“For years, nude scenes were primarily the domain of female actresses,” says Phil Henricks of Mr. Man, the world’s leading online library of every male nude scene in the history of film and television. Millions of fans flock to the site each month. “That has been changing as each year there are more scenes and actors to choose from. We are celebrating the fine actors who have the balls to go naked.”
Winners were chosen through a comprehensive process that included the editorial, production and marketing teams from Mr. Man. They selected five contenders for each of their 43 categories and then sat in a conference room, re-watched all the scenes, narrowed down their selections and voted on their winners. “It got heated in the room,” admits Henricks, citing Jake Gyllenhaal in Velvet Buzzsaw as an example. “Jake came close, but in the end, it was decided that he didn’t show enough nudity.”
