Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Parts Unknown’ Wins an Emmy Award


Did you know? This is Bourdain’s fourth Emmy win in five years.

Even before the 66th Primetime Emmy awards officially air this coming Sunday, Anthony Bourdain has come out a winner. For the second year in a row, Bourdain’s Parts Unknown has won a Creative Emmy award (given to the creative and technical teams behind the scenes of primetime TV shows) for “Outstanding Informational Series of Special.” Parts Unknown shared the award with HBO’s Vice, a show where journalists travel the world to interview people about political and cultural affairs.

In total, Parts Unknown was up for seven Emmy awards, including “Outstanding Writing for nonfiction Programming,” and technical awards for individual episodes. Bourdain himself was also nominated for an award as judge on The Taste, while another food show, Top Chef, also picked up an Emmy nomination.

This is Bourdain’s fourth Emmy win since 2009, when he won for “Outstanding Cinematography” for No Reservations.
