Daytime Emmys 2022: Inside the Leading Ladies Luncheon!

It’s been a Daytime Emmy Awards tradition for years! Shortly before the ceremony, last year’s winner of the Outstanding Lead Actress Daytime Emmy hosts a special luncheon for all of this year’s nominees. So THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL star Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) invited the 2022 nominees for a meal on June 11 at Loam in downtown Los Angeles!

In attendance were four of this year’s five Lead Actress nominees: Marci Miller (Abigail, DAYS OF OUR LIVES), Cynthia Watros (Nina, GENERAL HOSPITAL), Laura Wright (Carly, GH), and Arianne Zucker (Nicole, DAYS). Unfortunately, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda) was unable to be there, but filling in for her was Miller’s plus-one, her adorable one-year-old daughter, Willet! 

Wright even shared a short video montage of their lunch, where you can see Wood welcoming her guests, a quick shot of the menu, a toast, some delicious food, and everyone taking turns holding little Willet before she went on the run by herself!

We’ll still have to wait until Friday, June 24, to see who takes home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy Award this year (and who will then be hosting next year’s luncheon!). But for now, just keep scrolling to see some more shots from the fun day!
