HomeTVDays of Our LivesWhat If Molly Burnett Actually Received An Emmy Nomination, And Won? Luke Kerr March 3, 2009 Days of Our Lives 22 Comments 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? 22 Responses Brooke March 3, 2009 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!! Log in to Reply THEBEST March 3, 2009 That girl doesn’t deserve to win a spitting contest, let alone an Emmy. Log in to Reply bonobochick March 3, 2009 Shades of Natalia Livingston? :quest: But then again, the character of Melanie doesn’t actually bother me. Log in to Reply DOOLJunkie March 3, 2009 Then that would surely be the 7th sign of the apocalypse. Log in to Reply Johnathon March 3, 2009 "Don’t the actors submit scenes for pre-nom?

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. Log in to Reply INeedAHugandMedication March 3, 2009 Natalia Livingston has an emmy. Sadly, I don’t think it means much.

Log in to Reply KingTV March 3, 2009 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! Log in to Reply season1217 March 3, 2009 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. Log in to Reply brimike March 3, 2009 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. Log in to Reply Bob March 3, 2009 PORE OVER vs. POUR OVER When you intently study a book, you pore over it. If you pour over it, you are going to have a soggy book Source: http://grammartips.homestead.com/tenerrors.html Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 March 3, 2009 I hope that the Emmys isn’t making her nomination a true gesture to get rid of the Emmys itself and destroy soaps in general. Log in to Reply Equarter March 3, 2009 Even if she gets nom’ed she won’t win. DAYS don’t get acting awards from anywhere but SOD! Log in to Reply Johnathon March 3, 2009 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. Log in to Reply ladyofthelake March 3, 2009 If she was nominated or won, then there is no God, Log in to Reply tiredof caring March 3, 2009 If this “actress” gets an acutal nomination, I will take it as proof that the world as we know it is coming to an end. That is it. Log in to Reply dmfj March 4, 2009 I agree, Shelly much better than Molly. It will be a sad day if MB even gets the nomination. Log in to Reply Tripp March 4, 2009 If Darin Brooks and his face of constipation can get an Emmy nod, then anything is possible. Log in to Reply STRTRKN March 6, 2009 The more I see Melanie on-screen, the more I miss Trent Robbins. Log in to Reply soapoperafan March 6, 2009 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. Log in to Reply MollyBurnettFan May 13, 2009 All you guys are jealous that ur not her.. what other reason would there be to say such crude things. who would ever say “give head to get ahead” to a girl whos 20 years old.. u guys are so messed up about ur lives that u have to put down a girl who is actually succeeding so I hope you all love it when she wins that emmy.. Luke how much did you get paid for this article hahaha loser Log in to Reply Daniella1030 March 3, 2009 Shelley Hennig qualifies for the catergory. She’s not the best, but she’s better than Molly.
