Well, there are some exceptions. E.g. type aliases are still evaluated:

# Python 3.10
TT = tuple[int, Any]

Similarly, casts:

f(cast(Any, arg))

And subclassing from generic classes, e.g.

T = TypeVar("T")
class B(Generic[T]): ...

class C(B[Any]): ...

Probably some that I forgot.

Since Python 3.10, you can use "Any" without "from typing import Any".
You can do it in Python 3.7 by "from __future__ import annotations" too.

See https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0563/
