Get Naked, Win Emmy

TV has changed over the years, with broadcast and especially cable networks pushing the boundaries of content. A number of actors in this year’s race could win awards for roles that required nudity, including Matt Damon in “Behind the Candelabra,” Lena Dunham in “Girls,” and Elisabeth Moss in “Top of the Lake.”

If they win, they will follow several other actors who undressed for success, including the stars of biopics like “The Josephine Baker Story” and “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge” (pictured), the groundbreaking ABC drama “NYPD Blue,” and modern cable champs like “Dexter” and “Homeland.”
