The late Anthony Bourdain received two posthumous Emmy nominations on Tuesday for episodes of his CNN show “Parts Unknown” that aired last season.
This year, Bourdain is personally nominated as the show’s executive producer in Outstanding Informational Series or Special and as a writer in Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program. The show picked up four additional nominations for a total of six.
Following Bourdain’s death in June 2018, CNN vowed to air the remaining episodes of his popular travel show.
Throughout his career, the chef-turned-author and TV host earned a total of six Emmy Awards, all for “Parts Unknown.” He accumulated a total of 22 nominations — for “Parts Unknown” as well as his earlier Travel Channel series “No Reservations” and ABC’s “The Taste.”
Reps for CNN did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
