Anthony Bourdain won two posthumous Emmy Awards for his hit series of travel and food & # 39; Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown & # 39; on Sunday.
The deceased American chef was recognized for his outstanding writing achievements for a non-fiction program and an outstanding or special informational series.
A colleague who accepted the award said: "For me and for all the people who have worked for him in the last 20 years, I want to say that his writing was always fiercely intelligent, real, without gilipolleces.
His writing was inimitable … he is really on a trip to unknown parts. I wish we could have filmed that trip with him.
Bourdain hanged himself while staying at the Le Chambard hotel in Kaysersberg, France, where he was filming an upcoming episode for the CNN show.
Parts Unknown, which aired for the first time in April 2013, will return to CNN for a final series later this fall and will include an episode narrated by the star. It will comprise seven episodes; five in which Bourdain appears and two in which it does not appear.
A CNN spokesman told DailyMail.com last month: "We can confirm that there will be a new season of seven episodes of Parts Unknown released in the fall of 2018 (TBA date), which includes an episode with the Bourdain – Kenya narrative with W. Kamau Bell (title TBA).
& # 39; It will be similar in format to the previous episodes of Parts Unknown. & # 39;
The last two will show first how the producers made the series as a result of his death and the final episode will reflect how it impacted the world.
Before dying, he narrated an episode that had been filmed in Kenya with the television presenter W. Kamau Bell in March.
He also filmed in Manhattan, Mexico, Bali, Texas and Spain, but did not have the opportunity to add his distinctive voice to those scenes before he died.
