Technically, Mad Men and American Horror Story lead the 2012 Primetime Emmy nominees, but several food shows made the cut this year.
Top Chef got three nominations, for Outstanding Reality Competititon Program as well as for Outstanding Cinematography and Picture Editing for Reality Programming.
Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations one-upped Padma in the nonfiction nominations, getting nods in Outstanding Nonfiction Series, Outstanding Picture Editing, Outstanding Cinematography, and Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction.
In the meantime, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution was nominated for Outstanding Reality Program, which the show actually won back in 2010. Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen received a small nod for Outstanding Art Direction for a Multi-Camera Series, while HBO's The Weight of a Nation and The Weight of the Nation for Kids were also nominated for Outstanding Nonfiction and Outstanding Nonfiction for Kids, respectively.
