Some of the most popular and critically-acclaimed food shows of the last year are now nominated for 2019 Emmy Primetime Awards — including CNN’s game-changing travel series Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown and Netflix’s hit makeover show Queer Eye.

The former ended its run last November, just five months after the tragic death of star Anthony Bourdain. Parts Unknown scores six nominations today, including recognition in the categories of “Outstanding Informational Series or Special” and “Outstanding Cinematography for a Nonfiction Program.” Bourdain himself receives a posthumous nomination in the category of “Outstanding Writing for a Nonfiction Program” for his work on the Kenya episode of Parts Unknown, which was the last episode that he completed before he died. As for Queer Eye, the show gets six awards nominations total, including “Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program” and “Outstanding Structured Reality Program” (both of which it won last year).

A few other highlights: Chef’s Table is nominated in the category of Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series; Nailed It! and Top Chef are both up for theOutstanding Competition Program” award; At Home With Amy Sedaris is in the running for “Outstanding Variety Sketch Series”; and Guy Fieri’s perennially-popular Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives gets a nod in the category of “Outstanding Structured Reality Program.”
