Explore Parts Unknown also received a nomination for Outstanding Short Form Nonfiction or Reality Series.

Bourdain hosted and executive produced the show, which scored a nomination for information series or special. The recognition comes a month after his death on June 8.

The celebrity chef and TV personality earned six posthumous nominations for his work on the CNN series "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown", including Outstanding Informational Series or Special. Anthony and Olivia shared an 11-year-old daughter and had been amicably separated since 2016, during which time Bourdain became romantically involved with Italian actress Asia Argento.

"It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain", the network said. His death came shortly after fashion designer Kate Spade died by suicide three days prior, sparking an online conversation about mental health.

Mr Trump is hardly likely to catch a glimpse of the six metre giant orange inflatable blimp that depicts him as a screaming baby. Well, at least Melania Trump is spending her time in London - and maybe Donald Trump could take some learning from that.

"Some fans have noticed that "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" was scheduled to come off Netflix US on June 16", Netflix posted on its official Twitter account. During the show's run, the series was nominated 31 times and won multiple Outstanding Informational Series awards and Outstanding Cinematography for Nonfiction Programming.

When the No Reservations Travel Channel host made the jump to CNN in 2013, he said he was excited to get access to parts of the world "I never would have been able to go and look at these cultures in either a bigger picture or a more narrow focus as I choose".

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will air on September 17.
