It's that time of year again. Every December, the real estate site Zillow asks Americans which celebrities they would most like to have as their neighbor -- and which celebs they wouldn't dare share a fence with. (Scroll down to see the full list.)

Here are the winners (and losers) of Zillow's eighth annual Celebrity Neighbor Survey.

Most Desirable Neighbors for 2015

Jimmy Fallon can add yet another award to his list of accomplishments, as the comedian and late-night TV host was the top choice for celebrity neighbor for the second year in a row.

Fallon earned 10 percent of the overall votes in his category, and was more popular among voters with kids (14 percent) than those without (8 percent).

Country music couple Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton were a close second on the list with 9 percent of the votes.

"Jimmy Fallon had an incredibly successful first year on the 'Tonight Show,' is well-liked by Americans and carries a positive, relatable vibe that makes him an ideal neighbor," said Amy Bohutinsky, Zillow chief marketing officer. "Plus, who wouldn't want to live next to someone who makes you laugh?"

So where does the two-time "most desirable neighbor" champ call home? A historic Gramercy Park co-op building in New York. Fallon recently purchased a second unit and plans to renovate, expanding his current living space into the top floor to accommodate his growing family.

Worst Neighbors of 2014

Infamous teen pop star Justin Bieber topped the list of worst neighbors for the year, earning the highest percentage of votes in survey history.

One in three voters (34 percent) found Bieber to be the most undesirable neighbor of 2014 -- more than double last year's 16 percent.

Last year's winners, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, came in second with 22 percent of the votes, down slightly from 25 percent last year. Apparently they aren't too keen on neighbors either, as they have just purchased what looks to be a $3 million tear-down to be a privacy buffer next door to their home in the wealthy enclave of Hidden Hills near Los Angeles.

Bieber, though, ran away with the award.

"No one wants to live on the same street as someone accused of reckless driving or egging neighboring homes, which is likely why Bieber received the highest percentage of 'worst' votes in survey history," Bohutinsky said in the release.

Bieber currently rents a dramatic Beverly Hills bachelor pad with sweeping city views for a whopping $59,000 per month.

1. Justin Bieber (34%)
Kim Kardashian & Kayne West (22%)
3. Miley Cyrus (10%)

4. Matthew McConaughey (7%)
5. Neil Patrick Harris (6%)
6. George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin (4%)
7. Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis (4%)

Taylor Swift, interestingly, made both lists. But the real winner, with 36% of the vote for most desirable celebrity neighbor?

None of the above.
