‘The Bold and the Beautiful’: Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Won’t Receive a Daytime Emmy Nod This Year
The Bold and the Beautiful actor Jacqueline MacInnes Wood has become the show’s new leading lady. Since 2008, viewers have watched Wood’s incredible portrayal of Steffy Forrester. Wood’s performances have earned her two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actress. While many fans would love to see her win a third Emmy, it won’t happen this year.
‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ star Jacqueline MacInnes Wood reveals she didn’t submit for the 2022 Daytime Emmys
There’s no denying that Wood is one of The Bold and the Beautiful’s best actors. Wood knocks it out of the park with her performances, whatever storyline the writers have. Last year, she took home the gold at the Daytime Emmys. Yet, there will be no back-to-back wins for the star this year.
The 2022 Daytime Emmy nominations focus on work from the previous year. 2021 was a big year for Steffy with her marriage to John “Finn” Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) and discovering Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) is her mother-in-law. However, Wood didn’t feel the need to submit her work for a nomination.
In a recent interview with Bold Live, the actor explained why she didn’t submit. “I did not submit this year. It’s just like, I’m not the kind of gal who needs to submit every single year. There were great storylines last year, but I just didn’t feel like I had to submit.”
Jacqueline MacInnes Wood won Daytime Emmys in 2019 and 2021
During her 13-year career with The Bold and the Beautiful, Wood has racked up many Daytime Emmy nominations. In 2012 and 2013, she was nominated for Younger Actress, and in 2018 earned a Supporting Actress nod. While she came up empty in her previous bids, 2019 would be a massive year for the actor.
Wood took home the prize for Outstanding Lead Actress beating out stiff competition from Marci Miller, Maura West, Heather Tom, and Laura Wright. Wood was a dark horse, but her reel featuring Steffy confessing to Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) about sleeping with his father was enough to move voters.
In 2021, Wood faced more competition from Melissa Claire Egan, Genie Francis, Nancy Lee Grahn, and Finola Hughes. However, she was the clear favorite to win this time because of Steffy’s addiction storyline. Wood’s name was called at the end of the evening, and the actor walked away with her second trophy.
The actor is a shoo-in for a 2023 nomination
Wood won’t be nominated for a 2022 Daytime Emmy, but the actor is a lock for next year. Wood’s recent performances on The Bold and the Beautiful have been phenomenal. Wood has plenty of material to submit, from Steffy’s confrontation with Sheila to Finn’s death.
Fans have been crying alongside Steffy as she grieves the loss of her husband. For Wood, filming Finn’s death scenes was heart-wrenching. “They were so tough, especially when Finn comes in. I mean, it’s just, it was really, really emotional. I had the opioid storyline, and that was gut-wrenching, but this was like for me another level.”
If Wood keeps churning out performances like this, she might be winning her third Daytime Emmy in 2023.
