The show also takes four technical nominations of which you can read about here – Days of our Lives Technical Daytime Emmy Nominations.
Soaps.com congratulated Molly Burnett on her Daytime Emmy nod today. “Thank you!!!!” she gushed. We asked her if she’d mind sharing her thoughts about the nomination. “Of course,” she said, smiling. She went on to say, “I am so thankful and excited for all the days nominees!” Because the nominations are so early for the folks in PST, Molly tells us, “I was laying in bed when Kyley [DOOL publicist] called at like 6:00 AM!” (laughs) Soaps.com thinks it’s well deserved and wishes all nominees the best.
