The nominees for the 85th Annual Academy Awards were announced this morning in Los Angeles, and Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln (2012) is leading the pack of heavy hitters up for Oscar gold. Now there’s only one question on skin fans minds- which of the actresses got nude for their roles?

For this year's nominudes we first turn to the Best Actress race where Naomi Watts made a skin splash in the tsunami drama The Impossible (2012), and octogenarian Emmanuelle Riva flashed her finely-aged French funbaguettes in Amour (2012) to become the oldest-ever performer nominated. Unsurprisingly Helen Hunt cinched a place in the Best Supporting Actress category for baring every inch of her MILFtastic majesty as a sex surrogate in The Sessions (2012).

That’s it for nominudes, but there are plenty of notable nominees who have gotten nude in previous roles:
