This morning, the Television Academy announced its nominations for this year’s Emmy Awards, which take place on September 17. 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 CNN program has been nominated for Outstanding Picture Editing for a Nonfiction Program, Outstanding Short Form Nonfiction or Reality Series, Outstanding Informational Series or Special, Outstanding Sound Editing for a Nonfiction Program, Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Nonfiction Program, and Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program. Other competitors in these categories include Chef’s Table, Netflix’s Wild, Wild Country, and Vice on HBO.
The six nominations gives Parts Unknown a total of 31 Emmy nods since it first aired, including the four times it won the Emmy for Outstanding Informational Series or Special between 2013 and 2016. We’ll find out which awards, if any, the show will take home when the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards take place on September 8 and 9.
