The 2013 Emmy nominations went public this morning, and Anthony Bourdain is nominated for Outstanding Reality Show Host for his work on The Taste. (So the answer to "Does the Taste Have an Anthony Bourdain Problem?" is no.) Bourdain's No Reservations won in 2009 and 2011 for Outstanding Cinematography for Nonfiction Programming, but now he's up against Dancing With the Stars! And Ryan Seacrest! Top Chef also received a nomination for Outstanding Realty Show Competition, an award that the show won in 2010. As always, The Amazing Race is the show to beat in that category. [Vulture]
