With 2011 quickly drawing to a close, it is with great pride that THG unveils its 10 finalists for its prestigious, arbitrary, 5th Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These celebrities gave us their best, their worst, their nude pics and sex tapes (sometimes) and their scandals (often). This month, THG honors that greatness.

We kick off the top 10 with a perennial train wreck ... Lindsay Lohan!

Lindsay Lohan Motivational Poster

THG's take on what a Lindsay Lohan motivational poster would look like.

The past year was a wreckalicious one for Lindsay Lohan, who used to be an actress (we think), and who came in at #8 on last year's COTY list for the same reason.

Yes, for almost as long as we can remember, she's been best known for being a mess. But a prolific one. Nobody violates probation and racks up legal bills like LiLo!

Heck, if she weren't in court every freaking month and without gainful employment, we wouldn't be gearing up to see Lindsay Lohan nude in Playboy this month!

For that, men everywhere thank her. Now let's review the year in Lohan ...

With 2010 about the conclude, it has been with much pride that THG has spent weeks unveiling its finalists for its prestigious, Fourth Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These stars all gave us their best, their worst, their nude pics (sometimes) and their scandals (often).

Earlier this week, we had no choice but to honor the violent, woman-berating Mel Gibson at #2, and now we present the top celebrity of 2010: Justin Bieber!

We could ramble on about Bieber's good looks, his sense of humor, his musical ability, his fun-loving, humble attitude. But the numbers in 2010 sum up everything that needs to be said about why this year belonged to the Biebs:

ONE: The ranking of Bieber among all human beings that were searched for on Google.

6,480,149: His number of Twitter followers.

424,585,480: As of this posting, the number of times "Baby" had been watched on YouTube.

After the bong-smoking, often-pantsless Miley Cyrus could not be tamed at #3, we present another polarizing figure at #2... Mel Gibson!

Simply put, Mel Gibson is not on this list because of his work.

The legendary actor became completely unglued this year. He is an all-time movie star now embroiled in one of the all-time celebrity scandals.

We thought we'd seen it all with his epic DUI arrest of 2006. Or when he made news LAST year by giving it to Oksana Grigorieva - and getting her pregnant - while still married to his wife of nearly three decades, Robyn.

It turns out Mel saved his borderline crazy best for 2010 ...

After the Jersey Shore cast fist-pumped its way to #4, we present one of our most polarizing figures at #3 ... Miley Cyrus!

Rocking Europe

Perhaps more than any celebrity we cover, 2010 was a year of ups and downs for Miley, lows and highs (literally!).

It began with the official announcement that Cyrus would be saying farewell to the role of Hannah Montana, and it ended with a bong-smoking controversy that epitomized the lengths this star had gone to over the past 12 months to prove she was transforming into an adult artist.

After the Kardashians kame in at #5, we present an even more useless group as our Celebrity of the Year finalist #4 ... the Jersey Shore cast!

Snooki-Angelina Fight

Love 'em or hate 'em, they left their mark in 2010.

We know. They are idiots. You can spare the "what a bunch of losers with no future and bad values" bit, because we f*%king know. Maybe that's the appeal.

You can argue how undeserving they are of fame and fortune all day long, and you won't be wrong. But doesn't that apply to many "celebrities" nowadays?

In terms of raw impact on popular culture, few have had the impact of this gang of guidos and guidettes, who rose from obscurity to household names.

After Charlie Sheen checked in at #6 with his disturbing list of drug-fueld antics and attacks, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #5 ... All of the Kardashians!

Signing Books, Autographs

We can't choose just one sibling, after all. By having babies, constantly talking about their weight and placing their name on any product, Khloe, Kourtney and Kim all made headline after headline in 2010.

Heck, youngsters Kylie and Kendall Jenner even got in on the act.

Nice Hat, Charlie

Following Sarah Palin checking in at #7 with her impressive list of self-serving Tweets and caribou killings, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #6 ... Charlie Sheen!

Sheen book-ended a year he'd likely rather forget - and, thanks to heavy drug usage, may already have - with two different investigations into two different violent escapades.

First, there was the Christmas Day confrontation with Brooke Mueller, who would eventually wise up and divorce this troubled star. Then, there was the NYC rampage against Capri Anderson, who still may sue Sheen for allegedly threatening her life.

Following Lindsay Lohan checking in at #8 after checking into rehab eight times, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #7 ... Sarah Palin!

Sarah Palin and her equally-entertaining offspring.

It's hard to believe that two years ago, someone on THG's Celebrity of the Year countdown was nominated for Vice President of the United States.

Sarah Palin treats convention like she does the English language, though. Since resigning as Alaska Governor last summer, she's gone on to, uhh ... hmm.

Become a professional celebrity? Tough to put your finger on, but she's certainly not a political figure anymore. Political figures advocate for policy and progress.

Sarah Palin advocates for Sarah Palin. Relentlessly.

With the exception of PETA and Speidi, no organization is as persistently shameless in pursuit of attention, controversy and headlines than Sarah Palin Inc.

Following the revolting but necessary inclusion of Danielle Staub at #9, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #8 ... Lindsay Lohan!

Cracked Out Mess

Lindsay Lohan's default expression throughout most of 2010.

The past year was a wreckalicious one for Lindsay Lohan, who used to be an actress at one point. These days, she's known mostly for ... being a disaster.

Still, the fact that she defied death and appears to be on the right track at last - she's been in rehab for months with no end in sight - is worthy of props!

If you searched for "Lindsay Lohan jailed" from mid-July on, chances are you'd find a THG story. She was locked up this summer for a probation violation.

She was then spring, entered rehab, left rehab, failed a drug test, had a warrant issued for her arrest, was briefly jailed and then ordered to rehab again.

... Danielle Staub!

Staub the Stripper

It's important to get something straight, of course: we despise Staub. She's the epitome of everything that's wrong in our celebrity-obsessed culture.

Talentless, promiscuous and attention-starved, Danielle is solely famous because she has no shame. She'll do anything for publicity. But it cannot be argued that this strategy has made her a major player in the gossip game throughout 2010.
