No. No miles on award tickets.

Pure award trips do not earn miles. One option would be to use the Points+Cash option, which would earn miles.

Reward flights do not earn miles of any kind.

You cannot earn status miles on flights booked with miles.

How many times would you like us to tell you (in the last two years) that award miles do not earn status miles? It hasn't changed for...ever!

Get your miles to go on a date with each other. Somewhere nice. Maybe a fancy restaurant. Set the mood: Candle light, rose petals, chocolates, champagne, etc. Everything, the whole lot.
If your miles get lucky, they will give birth to more miles in ~9 months. Good luck. ^
