Parts Unknown was nominated in the categories of sound mixing, sound and picture editing as well as cinematography. CNN notes, the series essentially had Bourdain travelling to all corners of the world in search of "delicious meals, enlightening conversations with the locals and a deeper understanding of wherever he happened to be visiting that week."

Bourdain took his life in early June in eastern France, where he was working on an episode of his show. He was 61.

Bourdain, known for using culinary traditions as a storytelling tool to explore cultures around the globe, was also a celebrated author.
