Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown Nominated for 6 Emmys One Month After Star’s Death

Anthony Bourdain’s CNN travel series, Parts Unknown has been nominated for 6 Emmys just one month after the star chef’s death.

Last month, Bourdain was filming Parts Unknown in France when, on June 8, he tragically took his own life. He was 61.

On July 12, it was announced that the show had been nominated for 6 Emmys including: Outstanding Cinematography for a Nonfiction Program, Outstanding Picture Editing for a Nonfiction Program, 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.

It is also not the first time that the CNN series was nominated or received an Emmy. During the show’s run, the series was nominated 31 times and won multiple Outstanding Informational Series awards and Outstanding Cinematography for Nonfiction Programming.

The award-winning show can currently be seen on Netflix which decided to extend the series run on the streaming network after fans called for it to remain.

“Some fans have noticed that Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown was scheduled to come off Netflix US on June 16,” Netflix wrote in a tweeted out statement on June 12th. “As of today, we’ve extended our agreement that will keep Parts Unknown on the service for months to come.”
