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.
