CNN reported that the Television Academy honored late host Anthony Bourdain on Sunday with multiple wins at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Bourdain won six awards for his series, “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” which airs on CNN.
They included two individual awards for Bourdain, one for outstanding writing for a nonfiction program and another for outstanding informational series. Bourdain’s awards were accepted on his behalf by peers and co-creators. Executive producer Nathan Thornburgh said, “The one thing about this loss is it’s not ours alone… everybody had a selfie with him, but more importantly I think everyone felt like he had spoken to them over the years and that’s helped a lot, to feel like we’re not alone.”
CNN will premiere the first of eight final episodes of “Parts Unknown” on September 23.
