According to a poll released Wednesday, when children were asked to name people they thought belong on Santa Claus’ naughty list, the celebs holding the top two spots shouldn’t be any surprise to readers of OK! — Britney Spears and Paris Hilton.

The two scandal magnets, who enjoyed a brief, if not destructive, friendship this time last year, were chosen by a diverse group of more than 1,100 children as the two most deserving of coal-filled stockings come Christmas morning. Brit-Brit, who has made headlines for almost everything EXCEPT her music this past year, was the ultimate “winner” of the naughtiest title, followed closely by the celebutante Simple Life star, who served the most talked-about 23 days behind bars so far this century.

At the other end of the spectrum was good-girl Mylie “Hannah Montana” Cyrus, who was selected as “nicest” by the group of polled children between ages 2 to 12. Oddly enough, the kids age 13 to 17 picked a very different winner in this category — former Hollywood bad girl Angelina Jolie! Though we’re willing to chalk this result up more to budding hormones than Angie’s do-gooder makeover in recent years.
