The state of being exaggeratedly (theatrically) dramatic.

'Melodramatic' is derived from melodrama, which is in turn derived from the Greek word 'melos' (music) and the word 'drama'.
Random student: *watching commercial in class about poor children in Africa*: Oh, those poor kids! I just want to hug them and kiss them and tell them *sniff* they're going to be okay! Oh, I'm sorry *sniff*... can I get some water?

Me to another classmate: ''Ugh, just another display of attention-seeking from Ms Melodramatic. I swear, she's constantly trying to make herself look more thoughtful or 'nice' than she really is. Either that, or she's just overreacting.''
