Anthony Bourdain wins posthumous Emmy for CNN’s ‘Parts Unknown’


Late celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain’s CNN show “Parts Unknown” took home two awards, including one for his writing, at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmy Awards over the weekend.

The 12th and final season of his acclaimed travel show premiered nearly a year ago, more than two months after Bourdain committed suicide at a French hotel.

Fellow celebrity chef and friend José Andrés celebrated the achievement on social media, tweeting that “our friend keeps delivering the goods.”

It was the second year Bourdain won posthumous Emmys. His show received all six awards it was nominated for at the 2018 Creative Arts Emmys.

The ceremony, held this year at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, is a precursor to the primetime Emmy Awards. The main event is scheduled for 8 p.m. Sunday.
