The 2013 Primetime Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and a few food reality shows and food TV personalities made the cut. Anthony Bourdain and crew took home four nominations this year: Overall, his CNN show Parts Unknown was recognized for "Outstanding Informational Series Or Special." For the Libya episode, they got a nod for "Outstanding Writing For Nonfiction Programming." And for Myanmar, they got "Outstanding Cinematography For Nonfiction Programming" and "Outstanding Sound Mixing For Nonfiction Programming." To top it off, Bourdain's snarky antics on ABC's recently renewed The Taste earned him a nomination for "Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program."
Bravo's Top Chef and its multivariable incarnations got four nominations in total. OG Top Chef received two, for the "Outstanding Reality-Competition Program" and "Outstanding Cinematography For Reality Programming" categories. Web series Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen got a nod for "Outstanding Special Class - Short-Format Nonfiction Programs," and the lesser-known Bravo's Top Chef Interactive Experience received a nomination for "Outstanding Interactive Program."
Other nominations include Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, also for "Outstanding Reality Program," FOX animated series Bob's Burgers for "Outstanding Animated Program," and Masterchef for "Outstanding Art Direction For A Multi-Camera Series." Also nominated was croissant-centric Disney cartoon Disney Mickey Mouse Croissant de Triomphe for "Outstanding Short-Format Animated Program."
