Love her or hate her, folks were definitely talking about Miley Cyrus in 2013. It was her year.

Good year: Justin Timberlake —
Justin Timberlake won awards, dominated the charts and had videos go viral thanks to his late-night show appearances. If only we could get 'N Sync reunited for real.

Good year: Kerry Washington —
Hit show, new marriage and a baby on the way. Oh, and Kerry Washington also managed to score major magazine covers and prove to the world that she can be funny thanks to a "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig.

Good year: Jennifer Lawrence —
Jennifer Lawrence's adorable levels are off the charts (even her gifs are precious), and she's carving an amazing career for herself after winning the best actress Oscar for last year's "Silver Linings Playbook." This year she wowed in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and "American Hustle."

Good year: Sandra Bullock —
Sandy B. stays winning. Not only is Bullock an amazing actress who can make the world laugh in a female buddy-cop movie ("The Heat") and cry in an out-of-this-world drama ("Gravity"), but she makes it all look easy.

Bad year: Justin Bieber —
There is so much here to reflect on with Justin Bieber. He lost his monkey, his girlfriend (Selena Gomez) and his squeaky-clean image in 2013. Oh, Biebs.

Bad year: Amanda Bynes —
At first the world thought Amanda Bynes was pranking everyone, but it turned out she had some serious issues. It was a rough year for the actress and her family.
Bad year: Lindsay Lohan —
It was supposed to be the year that put Lindsay Lohan back on top with an artsy film ("The Canyons") and a return to the focus on her career and not on past antics. We're still waiting on that.
Bad year: Kimye —
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West united, had a baby and got engaged. They also opened themselves up to incredible scorn -- many times for things that came out of West's mouth during interviews.
Bad year: Chris Brown —
It looked like things were turning around for Brown, who even earned Rihanna's forgiveness. Then things went left, and he is back in legal trouble again. Here's to a better 2014.
