Bourdain received two personal nominations for his work as executive producer, host and writer of his CNN show "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown", where he traveled the world sampling food and meeting various characters. The nomination comes soon after Bourdain died on June 8.
Anthony Bourdain was nominated posthumously for an Emmy in the outstanding informational series or special category Thursday morning, giving him a chance to earn his fifth TV honor come September.
Bourdain earned the nod for his acclaimed CNN show, "Parts Unknown", a show he starred in and produced. Although CNN has not made an official announcement, it is unlikely "Parts Unknown" would continue in its current form without Bourdain.
Season 11, which was running at the time of his death, could still pick up noms at next year's Emmys.
"It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain", the network said.
Bourdain achieved celebrity status after the publication in 2000 of his best-selling book "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly". It won the Outstanding Informational Series or Special every year since 2013 and is up for the award again for 2017. Prior to 2018, "Parts Unknown" recorded a total of 24 primetime Emmy nominations.
