Filming was underway for CNN's Parts Unknown in France when its host Anthony Bourdain died by suicide. Now, more than a year after the chef's passing, Bourdain has been nominated for a 2019 Emmy award.
The chef has been nominated in the category of “Outstanding Informational Series or Special and Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program” for the CNN program.
Other nominees in the category include Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, and Surviving R. Kelly. For writing, Bourdain will vie for the statuette against Fyre Fraud, Hostile Planet, Our Planet, The Case Against Adnan Syed, and Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men.
The show also scored Emmy nods for sound mixing, cinematography, as well as picture editing. It won trophies for “Outstanding Informational Series or Special” in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. Bourdain also posthumously scored Creative Arts Emmys at the awards in 2018 following his death.
