A lot of the usual suspects, like Game of Thrones and Saturday Night Live cleaned up, but so did Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, which received six posthumous nominations for the late TV host and author. The show's digital extension, "Explore Parts Unknown", also scored a nomination.
On Thursday, Parts Unknown was nominated for Outstanding Information Series or Special, Outstanding Cinematography for Nonfiction Programming, Outstanding Picture Editing For Nonfiction Programming, Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program, Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Nonfiction Program and Outstanding Sound Editing for a Nonfiction Program.
Anthony Bourdain is seen with a film crew at Wistub de la Petite Venise, a restaurant in Colmar, France, June 4, 2018. His four wins were for producing "Parts Unknown".
"[Bourdain's] love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller", CNN said in a statement after his death last month. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much.
This morning, the Television Academy announced its nominations for this year's Emmy Awards, which take place on September 17.
