Anthony Bourdain Has Posthumously Won Six Emmys
Three months after his death at the age of 61, Anthony Bourdain has won six Emmys for his show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown and its digital companion program. His show, nominated for six Emmys in total, won awards for best informational series or special, writing for non-fiction program, picture editing for a non-fiction program, sound editing for a non-fiction program and sound mixing for a non-fiction program. Bourdain personally won two of the Emmys; he was awarded one for writing, and the other for informational series or special. He also won an Emmy for best short-form non-fiction or reality for the show’s digital program, Anthony Bourdain: Explore Parts Unknown.
At the ceremony, which took place this weekend, Bourdain’s Parts Unknown colleagues accepted the awards on his behalf.
“The one thing about this loss is it’s not ours alone, like everybody knew that guy,” said executive producer Nathan Thornburgh. “Everybody had a selfie with him, but more importantly I think everyone felt like he had spoken to them over the years and that’s helped a lot, to feel like we’re not alone.”
Bourdain had previously won four Emmys, though he’d been nominated in the non-fiction writing category eight times and had never taken home the trophy.
A final season of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown will air this fall on CNN. Only one of these new episodes had been completed with his narration before Bourdain died of suicide on June 8. But four other episodes had been filmed and will air in this final season with audio that had been recorded on-site. Other new episodes will be pieced together with footage and consist of staff and friends remembering the legendary chef, writer, and host.
