Anthony Bourdain's Posthumous Emmy Nomination 2018

Anthony Bourdain Receives an Emmy Nomination One Month After His Death

This year's batch of Emmy nominations went out on Thursday, and though the list includes plenty of familiar faces — Claire Foy, Sterling K. Brown, and the cast of The Handmaid's Tale — one repeat nominee caught peoples' eyes for an emotional reason: Anthony Bourdain.

The late, great chef, best-selling author, and travel journalist picked up a posthumous Emmy nod for his work on CNN's Parts Unknown, which he hosted and executive produced. The food-centric series scored six nominations overall, including best informational series or special, cinematography, picture editing, sound editing, sound mixing, and writing. As a bonus, CNN.com's Anthony Bourdain: Explore Parts Unknown was also recognised in the best shortform nonfiction or reality series category.

Parts Unknown followed Bourdain — who died from suicide at age 61 in France last month — as he ate his way around the world, touching down in remote cities and villages to speak with locals about their cultures and traditions while sampling their cuisine. The cooking world's resident "bad boy chef" was working on a new episode of the series at the time of his tragic death, but previous seasons of the series are streaming on Netflix now, so check them out if you haven't already.
