Before Miley Cyrus was known for her wild outfits and tongue, she gained fame for starring on the Disney Channel hit series Hannah Montana. The singer and actress starred on the series from 2006 until 2011, during which the show won many awards. Seriously, Hannah Montana won a lot of awards during its run, and, even 10 years later, it makes sense. After all, Cyrus played two characters on the show — the titular blonde wig-wearing pop star, and normal gal brunette Miley Stewart who kept her famous identity a secret.
Sure, Hannah Montana's wig disguise wasn't exactly brilliant, but the show premise was so entertaining — Miley juggled her double life while trying to be a normal teen with good friends and crushes on cute boys. In addition to launching Cyrus' career, Hannah Montana also starred Emily Osment, who played Miley's BFF Lily Truscott and went onto led the Freeform comedy series Young & Hungry. Cyrus, Osment, and gang totally cleaned up when it came to awards during their Hannah Montana days, from the Teen Choice Awards and Young Artist Awards to even racking up four Primetime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Children's Program.
