This is two polls in what I hope will be picked by the IMDB as an annual feature where the IMDB Usrs get to select who is on Santa's list and vote for who is the nicest or the naughtiest.
For the naughty list, http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027300293/ who was the naughtiest? All your selection needs to get on this list is to have had been in the news within the past year (preferably scandal), be connected with the entertianment industry and have a page on the IMDB.
For the nice list, http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027300992/ the same thing but in the opposite direction.

the naughty list is an easy choice...donald trump...no question...coal in the stocking for him...

i'm not quite sure about your choices on the nice list...certainly donald hasn't done anything to be there, and from what i understand about vin, he may not be santa's favorite either...

i'm sure you'll be adding more choices (maybe obama or pope francis in the nice column)...

anyway...look forward to seeing who else people suggest...this is a brilliant concept...great idea...

I would recommend against conducting these polls. The list of people in the entertainment business who have been accused of sexual harassment and/or sexual assault in the last few months just goes on and on. (Among the people not yet on your list who have already been fired from, gone on leave from, or otherwise been removed from jobs or projects are Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Garrison Keillor, and Louis C.K., just to name a few. That's not even counting the people who have been accused but not lost work yet, nor people who mostly work behind the scenes.) And saying that they belong on "Santa's naughty list" doesn't really sound like taking the accusations seriously. It could be perceived as being in bad taste.

Also, I don't get the nice list -- you've got Donald Trump as one of two people on the nice list even though he is also one of four people on the naughty list. There doesn't seem to be any clear logic behind it. And if you nominated 10 more men to the nice list ... you might find that at least one of them could wind up in his own sexual harassment scandal before the poll closes.

It First off, I'm counting on people like you to nominate the nice people since nice usually don't receive as much press as scandal does. Vin diesel is on there because I personally have not heard anything bad about him lately. He was basically used to start the nice list off.

Trump is on both lists because he is the president and his acts are going to be seen in a good light by some and in a bad light by others. I can go deeper because I have a political science degree and I care about political issues but I don't want start a fight.
As for you saying, " And saying that they belong on "Santa's naughty list" doesn't really sound like taking the accusations seriously. It could be perceived as being in bad taste." , I disagree with you. I take the charges very seriously. I see the naughty list both as a means of amusement, and ridicule and as means of showing these people up to the light of day. People who thought they were so poweriful that they thought that they could commit crimes and get away with it. And sex scandals isn't the only reason for them to be on that list. I may listed only a sex scandal for Harry Weinstein but there is a lot more reasons why he is on that list. Remember that I have a political science degree. Well the Weinsteins are heavily involved in politics and where heavily involved in the events leading up the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, (They are the real producers of Micheal Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)", http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0361596/?.... They created "Fellowship Adventure Group [US]" as a means to distribute the film in late October in violation of the 2002 Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, commonly known as the McCain–Feingold Act or "BCRA" . When Citizens United tried to do same thing on cable with a film criticizing Hillary Clinton - a candidate the Weinsteins supported - they were apart of the group that tried to use the BCRA law to stop the airing of "Hillary: The Movie" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1260360/?... Now it comes out that Harvey Weinstein had cheated Moore out of some his royalties for "Fahrenheit 9/11" and Moore is now suing the Weinsteins. In fact that happened before the sex scandal broke. Oh Harvey does belong on that list.

dgranger,

This poll is entirely too inflammatory to go live. gromit82 has already expressed my thoughts on the matter.

You're right Dan.  Clever idea (good Buzzfeed community post or something along those lines) but not appropriate for IMDb.

dgranger... as you see up above...i have no problem with the idea of these lists...it's very cool...

and now, i'm not saying this for myself (an amateur political junkie) but maybe if some people will get offended by certain obvious individuals that have committed certain acts, then maybe try someone like bernie madoff for the naughty list instead...and for the nice list, i always heard that sandra bullock treats everyone tremendously...i'm sure we could come up with dozens of candidates without corralling the accused into it...(trump can stay for so many other reasons...)

but there it is...no offense...just a thought...still cool idea...

No offense take. I'm afraid that I had offended.
