‘No Reservations’ and ‘Top Chef’ lead food TV Emmy nominations
LOS ANGELES, July 20 — Anthony Bourdain’s travel culinary show “No Reservations” leads this year’s Emmy nominations for food-related TV shows in major categories such as “Outstanding Nonfiction Series” and “Outstanding Writing.”
Announced Thursday, “No Reservations” got nods in four categories of the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which also include nominations for “Outstanding Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming” and “Outstanding Cinematography for Nonfiction Programming”, an award the show won in 2009.
This will be Bourdain’s last chance at adding another Emmy trophy to his mantle for “No Reservations”, which began in 2005, as the chef-writer-host has announced plans to pull the plug on the Travel Channel show to join CNN next year.
The new show will be shot on location and also examine cultures through their food. Bourdain will take on a larger role on other CNN programs as a commentator as well.
Bravo’s “Top Chef” was likewise nominated in major categories like “Outstanding Reality Competition Program”, “Outstanding Cinematography for Reality Programming” and “Outstanding Picture Editing for Reality Programming”.
And season two of Jamie Oliver’s "Food Revolution" was also nominated in the category of "Outstanding Reality Program", an award he took home in 2010. — AFP/Relaxnews
