Although Anthony Bourdain died of suicide on June 8 in France, the chef left an indelible mark and will not soon be forgotten. Neither will his CNN show Parts Unknown, so beloved by fans that they launched a successful petition to Netflix to continue streaming it. It is also much respected within the industry: Parts Unknown was nominated for six Emmy awards on Thursday.
Nominated categories are include Outstanding Cinematography for a Nonfiction Program; Outstanding Picture Editing for a Nonfiction Program; Outstanding Informational Series or Special; Outstanding Sound Editing for a Nonfiction Program; Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Nonfiction Program; and Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program.
The host's travel site Explore Parts Unknown also picked up a nod for Outstanding Short Form Nonfiction or Reality Series.
In all, this now makes 31 total Emmy noms for the show, which is a five-time winner.
Bravo also landed Emmy nominations: Bravo's Top Chef earned a nod in the Outstanding Reality-Competition along with The Voice, The Amazing Race, America Ninja Warrior, Project Runway, and RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen scored a nom against Explore Parts Unknown for Outstanding Short Form Nonfiction or Reality Series. And Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen picked up a nom for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media Within an Unscripted Program.
