A little over a month back, the world was shocked that TV personality, chef, author and world traveler Anthony Bourdain passed away.
Just a couple of weeks later, the season finale of Bourdain’s hit CNN series Parts Unknown aired. Hopefully this isn’t the last episode though. (Bourdain was in the middle of filming season 12 when he died.)
It was recently reported that Anthony Bourdain left the bulk of his estate to his daughter, however, the value was surprising.
One bit of positive new related to the star was that , a bill was proposed in New Jersey to create an Anthony Bourdain Trail. This would be a big honor and great way to remember a man who left such a huge impact on the world.
Eater reports that, “Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown’ Earns 6 Emmy Nominations.”
Parts Unknown earned a total of six Emmy Awards nominations, while the related website, Explore Parts Unknown received a nomination for Outstanding Short-Form Nonfiction or Reality Series.
The show is nominated for:
- Outstanding Informational Series or Special
- Outstanding Cinematography for a Nonfiction Program
- Outstanding Picture Editing for a Nonfiction Program
- Outstanding Sound Editing for a Nonfiction Program
- Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Nonfiction Program.
- Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program (the 2017 Southern Italy episode)
Bourdain and Parts Unknown are no strangers to Emmys honors. From 2013 through 2016, the show won Outstanding Informational Series or Special.
While I’m not really up on the award shows, it would be nice for Anthony Bourdain to be honored again for the work he put into Parts Unknown.
