Remember when CNN took a gamble on Anthony Bourdain last year? Skeptics wondered whether the foul-mouthed host would fit into a news network. Now, CNN is reaping the benefits with two primetime Emmys for Bourdain's Parts Unknown.
The show was nominated in four categories but won an Emmy for Outstanding Cinematography for Non-Fiction Programming and Outstanding Informational Series or Special, tying with Bravo's Inside the Actor's Studio.
Parts Unknown is produced by Zero Point Zero Productions, the same team behind Bourdain's No Reservations. Together, they celebrated their big win in Los Angeles with Bourdain tweeting pictures of their big night.Anthony Bourdain/Twitter
Bourdain and his team at ZPZ previously won a cinematography Emmy back in 2011. They were also nominated for an Emmy in 2006 for their heart-wrenching Beirtut episode.
Parts Unknown kicked off it's second season on Sunday with a special visit to Jerusalem. This season Bourdain will travel to Spain, Copenhagen, Sicily, New Mexico and South Africa.
