The Bold and the Beautiful's Jacqueline MacInnes Wood hosted this year's Daytime Emmy Lead Actress luncheon -- with a fun twist.

The Daytime Emmy lead actress lunch became a soap opera tradition when The Bold and the Beautiful's Susan Flannery began taking the nominees for a very special meal prior to the awards ceremony. Since then, the winner for Outstanding Performance by a Lead Actress from the previous year has invited that year's nominees to a special celebratory lunch. This year, that actress was B&B's Jacqueline MacInnes Wood.

However, Wood decided to break with tradition just a bit and invite actresses nominated in other categories, including Outstanding Performance by a Supporting Actress and Outstanding Guest Performer. They enjoyed their afternoon at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills.

That meant supporting nominees Emily O'Brien (Gwen Rizczech and Theresa Donovan, Days of our Lives), Alison Lanier (Summer Newman, The Young and the Restless), Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra, Y&R), and Jennifer Gareis (Donna Logan, B&B), as well as guest performer nominees Ashley Jones (Bridget Forrester, B&B) and Alley Mills (Heather Webber, General Hospital) were also in attendance.

Several of the lunching ladies shared snaps and thanks on their Instagram accounts and in their Instagram stories, including Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Logan, B&B), who received a lead actress nod this year.

"Daytime Emmy nominated actresses luncheon," Lang wrote alongside a video slideshow of her favorite pics from the event. "Thank you @jacquelinemwood_1 for hosting such a beautiful lunch🥰 It was a special day celebrating with all these amazing women!"
