Anthony Bourdain, the chef and CNN host who killed himself earlier this year, is the winner of a pair of posthumous Emmy Awards.
The world-traveling culinary pro’s show, “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” and the program's digital component, “Anthony Bourdain: Explore Parts Unknown,” snagged several trophies at the Creative Arts Emmys in Los Angeles.
“Parts Unknown” won in the “Best Informational Program” and “Best Writing (Non-fiction)” categories, as well as a slew of other technical categories. While Bourdain personally won two Emmys, his series picked up half a dozen honors at the Sunday ceremony.
Bourdain had previously won four Emmys over the years for his CNN program.
“Tony was nominated for this Emmy many times, but it had always eluded him,” producer Lydia Tenaglia said during an acceptance speech at the awards show, according to Variety.
“So it is with tremendous bittersweetness that I accept it on his behalf.”
Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room in France in June at the age of 61.
