(LOS ANGELES) — Just over a month after his death, famed chef Anthony Bourdain was nominated for a 2018 Emmy on Thursday.
Bourdain earned the nod for his acclaimed CNN show, Parts Unknown, a show he starred in and produced.
Bourdain is no stranger to the Emmys, his show having won the award for “Outstanding Informational Series or Special” for the past four years. Parts Unknown earned a total of six nods Thursday.
The chef and TV host took his own life on June 8 at the age of 61. He was in France filming an episode of his show at the time of his death.
His network, CNN, released a statement honoring the man after he died, noting in part, “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller.”
This year’s Emmy Awards will air Monday, Sept. 17.
