Any word if Emily Browning will be nude in Shangri-La Suite?

2

No, she won't.

On another note, here's a slowed down video of Erin Darke from Good Girls Revolt:

Finally, has Jennifer Connelly a sex scene (or another one) in American Pastoral?

Why the Fuck there's so much lack of full frontal nudity in 3 past years

I don't wanna see Lizzy's breast again I wanna see more

Assuming you mean full frontal nudity, there wasn't exactly an abundance to begin with - Game of Thrones and Spartacus are the only two major examples that spring to mind (excluding softcore porn anthologies on Cinemax and the like), and even then, the actors usually wore merkins.

As for nudity in general, I think 2016's been fine in that regard. New shows like Westworld, Vinyl and Quarry all delivered on the nudity front, and Easy had possibly my favorite nude scene of the year. In terms of long-running shows like Shameless and Masters of Sex, you'll find that nudity from the main cast typically dries up after a while as actors renegotiate their contracts, which includes renegotiating the nudity clause (if you're an actor on a successful show, it's perfectly reasonable to say "now that I've got sway and the show depends on me, I'd like to be naked on camera less often"), and of course, increasing the cast's salary, keeping in mind that nude scenes will often come at a higher price, so if someone's making 50% more per episode now, the producers would be less inclined to write in nude scenes, which would presumably also go up in price. There are a lot of facets at play here, and really, it's not like the producers, writers or actors owe us anything. If we get some unexpected nudity, that's great! If not, oh well, let's just hope the show's good.

As for your chances of seeing a full frontal scene from Lizzy Caplan, I'd say virtually nonexistent. Showtime seem to be far more hesitant about full frontal nudity in general than their premium cable counterparts, and seeing as we haven't gotten anything like that from MoS so far despite dozens of opportunities (excluding the nudist colony episode, which was mostly long shots of extras), it'd be pretty damn surprising if they started now. I'd love to see more of her too, but it's really not worth getting your hopes up.

2016 has been much more generous than 2015, that's for sure. We got nude debuts from Ashley Greene and Yvonne Strahovski, albeit a rather underwhelming one from the later. Plus we got an awesome threesome scene with nudity from both Malin Akerman and Kate Micucci.

Nothing has topped the 2014 1-2 punch of Alexandra Daddario and Scarlett Johansson, though.

2014 set the standard so high

At this point, the only one who can top Daddario is herself. And the way she tops herself is with an explicit enough girl on girl scene with a millennial sex symbol like Johansson or Margot Robbie. Or with one of her previous hot costars like Ashley Greene or Shelley Hennig or Leven Rambin. Or with other hot millennial actresses who have yet to show significant skin like Nina Dobrev or Ashley Benson or Halston Sage or anyone else you could think of.

Yeah, I have to agree with theheretic on this. Later seasons and decreased nudity go hand in hand for a reason. The golden age of nudity for a show tends to be in the beginning, so enjoy it while it lasts and adjust your expectations accordingly to save yourself the disappointment later on.

11

The other factor is that the nudity is often pushed more by the network than the people running the show. In a lot of interviews, dvd commentaries, panels, etc. with show runners and writers, they often say that one of the main notes they get from HBO/Cinemax/Starz/etc. is basically "more tits" - you see more nudity in the earlier seasons because the networks demand it in order to generate buzz and attract new viewers. Most writers are generally operating with the mentality of "let's make a good show" rather than "let's make this actor get naked more often," so once a show's picked up a following, it also picks up clout with the network, and the writers are in more of a position to say "no, we don't need a nude scene here."

Folks here seem to think it's external factors influencing the lack of nudity in later seasons, when really, it's external factors influencing the prominence of nudity in earlier seasons.

12

It's show clout and it's actress clout as well.

Like Emilia Clarke didn't show nudity in Seasons 4 and 5 and when she finally got naked again in Season 6, people complained that she didn't show enough nudity.

That's another problem. Sometimes the writers and showrunners don't understand that contextual nudity can make all the difference because they're more concerned about backlash from the anti-nudity brigade.

13

It's the pretentious Hollywood morons adopting the SJW narrative according to which anything sexual objectifies women. And if you're not familiar with objectification, it's a meaningless buzzword that translates to "it doesn't agree with my dogmas so I must demonize it".

This has been happening more and more in many shows btw.

I blame Trump.

Trump's going to make GoT nudity great again.
