Mazel! Top Chef Earns a 2016 Emmy Nomination
Did your other favorite TV shows make the cut?
To all the TV lovers out there, today is your day! The Television Academy announced the nominees for the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards with a little help from Anthony Anderson and Lauren Graham Thursday morning.
Bravo's very own Top Chef earned its 13th consecutive Emmy nomination for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program. Top Chef is joined in this category by American Ninja Warrior, Dancing with the Stars, Project Runway, The Amazing Race, and The Voice. Top Chef has won two Emmy Awards, one for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program in 2010 and one for Outstanding Picture Editing for Reality Programming in 2008.
"I'm so honored and excited that after 13 seasons, our fans at the Academy are still enjoying the show as much as we enjoy making it,” Top Chef host and judge Padma Lakshmi told The Daily Dish via email.
Inside the Actors Studio also earned a nomination for Outstanding Informational Series or Special, along with Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Star Talk with Neil deGrasse Tyson, The Story of God with Morgan Freeman, and Vice. This is Inside the Actors Studio's 19th nomination. The series took home the Emmy for this category in 2013.
“As strange as it may seem, all of us who are responsible for Inside the Actors Studio are as excited about our 19th nomination as we were about our first," series creator, executive producer, writer, and host James Lipton told The Daily Dish via email. "What a journey – for which we have our hundreds of generous and gifted guests to thank."
