What If Molly Burnett Actually Received An Emmy Nomination, And Won?

Every year at Emmy pre-nomination and nomination time we the fans pore over the official list of pre-nominees and nominees and then debate who we believe deserved their nomination, who was robbed and who shouldn’t be on the list. Then comes the discussions of whether or not alleged block voting will have an impact on who wins or if this is all just one big old popularity contest.

At this point I’m just coming out of the "they were robbed" stage. I do not know what Melody Thomas Scott and Trevor St. John are going to have to do, but apparently it is easier to do the work of one’s career than to get an Emmy pre-nomination. Meanwhile Molly Burnett, hair model extraordinaire, received an Outstanding Younger Actress pre-nomination for her portrayal of the widely reviled Melanie Layton. 

Most who know me can attest that I tend to over think things and this "what if" isn’t any different. What if Molly Burnett actually received an Emmy nomination while – worst case scenario – Kirsten Storms or Kristen Alderson were snubbed? Could hell actually freeze over? Might television as we know it cease to exist? Or would every polar icecap melt within 24 hours and destroy the planet in one giant tidal wave of destruction?

I’m almost scared to ask this, but is the Emmy nomination process just screwed up enough that Burnett could get the nomination, and win?

The moment this question flashed across my mind I jumped to the big night. Isn’t the Outstanding Younger Actress category one of the first to be announced? Even if it isn’t, I may need to keep some Valium on hand so that if she did win I can make sure I don’t have a heart attack, see visions of the apocalypse or find myself locked up in Shadybrook. I do not have time or energy it takes to try and get out of Shadybrook and I refuse to end up like Laura Spencer.

I don’t mean to scare anyone, but what if?

    Don’t the actors submit scenes for pre-nom?  I’m curious which scenes Molly submitted and why she thought she should (or was encouraged to) submit them!!

    Well last year we got to see the scenes the sumbitted thanks to Youtube, so hopefully we will get to see them again this year, and if Molly B makes it see what "emmy winning scenes" she picked.

    I figure that if she gets it the end is really here.

    That girl doesn’t deserve to win a spitting contest, let alone an Emmy.

    Wait… is this post about Molly Burnett or Michelle Stafford. Okay, I’m confused now.

    Obviously, Ken Corday, who is probably sleeping with her, got her the pre-nom by pressure, force and doing whatever he had to to satisfy his pet, which she obviously is. How did this unknown, bad actress suddenly take over the show. One phrase: you gotta give head to get ahead!

    Question: Besides Molly and Rachel Melvin, what other actress on the show is young enough to qualify for the younger actress category on DAYS? Maybe it’s just by omission that she was nominated. Somebody school me on this.

    Woah – take a step back, Luke! LOL!

    Nobody submits scenes for pre-noms. All pre-nom means is it’s who the show chooses to push in each category. That’s all. It’s not like the academy picking these people. The show’s Executive Producers pick the two people in each category to push. That’s all pre-nom means. There’s no submitting and no judging at this point.

    You can pick a block of wood to be a pre-nom, and it doesn’t mean anything.

    Even if she gets nom’ed she won’t win. DAYS don’t get acting awards from anywhere but SOD!

    See normally i would agree, but its Molly Burnett, if anyone is going to get a emmy from Days lord knows it will be her -.-. (*cough* just saying that made a little piece of me die lol *cough*)

    What bugs me is that DH didn’t even get a pre-nom, come on Marlena did more work with 0 storyline then well some of the other vets that got prenoms lol.

    Bite your tongue Luke! I tried to like Molly at first especially when Melanie’s Dad tried to pimp her out. But everything went south after that when they tried to make her a corporate power player with E.J. and Philip! I just find her annoying but I used to feel that way about Sami so who knows. But she does not deserve an Emmy just yet.
