The annual Leading Ladies Luncheon honoring this year’s Daytime Emmy nominees for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series took place on Saturday, June 11 and was hosted by last year’s winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (“The Bold and the Beautiful”). The event is traditionally hosted by the previous year’s winner regardless of whether they are nominated for the current year.

Taking place at LOAM DTLA, a popular restaurant located inside the ACE Hotel in Los Angeles, the event was attended by this year’s nominated actresses, including Marci Miller (“Days of our Lives”), Cynthia Watros (“General Hospital”), Laura Wright (“General Hospital”) and Arianne Zucker (“Days of our Lives”). Fellow nominee Mishael Morgan (“The Young and the Restless”) was unable to attend.

In a post on Instagram, Wright said of the event, “Another AMAZING Leading Ladies Luncheon – thank you @jacquelinemwood_1 for hosting this special tradition and a huge shout out to @loam.dtla for making it so memorable !!! Cheers to US ladies !!!!! See ya on the 24th !!!” In a separate post highlighting the outfit she wore for the luncheon, Wright shared, “I felt like a princess today.” She wore an outfit from the clothing brand Cleobella.

“Great day for a ladies luncheon!” captioned Zucker in an Instagram story showing off the outfit she wore from clothing company AFRM.

Miller brought her daughter, Willie, to the event. When not being held by herself or her fellow nominees, the bundle of joy was lying peacefully in her carrier.
