Can you believe it’s been over a year since the beloved traveler and TV host Anthony Bourdain died? Although Bourdain is no longer here on earth, his legacy continues.

Bourdain’s CNN TV series Parts Unknown has received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Informational Series and Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program. This is Bourdain’s second posthumous award — he won Emmy’s in the same categories this time last year.

Despite several episodes of Parts Unknown being incomplete following Bourdain’s death; the final episode was still aired.

According to Daily Mail, Bourdain was also posthumously nominated for Outstanding Picture Editing for a Nonfiction Program (‘Lower East Side), Outstanding Editing for a Nonfiction Program (‘Far West Texas’), and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Nonfiction Program (‘Kenya’).

The ‘Kenya’ episode is the only episode where Bourdain’s narration was featured during the final 12th season of the show.

Laurie Woolever, Bourdain’s assistant, tweeted: “One of a million things I wish he were here for”, after the announcement of his posthumous win.


In addition to TV writing and hosting, Bourdain also wrote books such as Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly; Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and People Who Cook.

Bourdain committed suicide in June 2018 while filming Parts Unknown.
