Proving that her career is still on the rise, Hannah Montana starlet Miley Cyrus has just received a nomination for this year's MTV Movie Awards. Last Monday, the full list of nominees was revealed. Everyone was in a flurry over their favorites, and the Disney princess was ecstatic upon discovering that she was one of them.
Miley Cyrus bagged a nomination for two categories. The first is for "Breakthrough Performance - Female" and the second was in a brand-new category. Her hit song "The Climb" was chosen as a nominee in "Best Song from a Movie."
"I got nominated for an MTV award!!!!" Miley posted on her Twitter page. She even added: "Yayyy :)"
Competing against Cyrus for "Breakthrough Performance - Female" award are fellow Disney gals like High School Musical
's Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale. However, a couple of other challengers could give them all a run for their money. Slumdog Millionaire
's charming Freida Pinto has also been listed under that category, as well as Kat Dennings of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.
As for "Best Song from a Movie," Miley Cyrus' "The Climb" has been pitted against several major contenders. One of which is Paramore's "Decode" from the movie Twilight
. There's also Slumdog
's incredibly catchy "Jai Ho," in addition to the Bruce Springsteen ballad "The Wrestler," from the film of the same name.
