July 14 saw the 68th Emmy Awards Nominations being announced these are the Food related Series or Episodes that were nominated to win this year.
With it being so cold and working seemingly to end later and later the only this more exciting than sleep is to pop into my heated bed, over looking the vineyard and fall asleep watching inspiring Foodie shows, such as the now Emmy nominated Chef’s Table. I have posted them in order of my Favorite MUST watch.
Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown
- Outstanding Sound Mixing For a Nonfiction Program (Single or Multi-Camera): “Ethiopia”
- Outstanding Cinematography For a Nonfiction Program: “Cuba” and “Okinawa”
- Outstanding Writing For a Nonfiction Program: “Borneo”
The Netflix original docuseries Chef’s Table showcases high-end cuisine with the same mouthwatering drama and intense visuals as Jiro Dreams of Sushi and that’s because the same director, David Gelb, created it.
- Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series
- Outstanding Directing For a Nonfiction Program: “Gaggan Anand”
- Outstanding Music Composition For a Series (Original Dramatic Score): “Grant Achatz”
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
Guy Fieri’s Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives is on its 25th season! Believe it or not, it’s the fourth consecutive year its been nominated for a national primetime Emmy. If you don’t have cable, you can download the season on Amazon.
- Outstanding Structured Reality Program
Top Chef California
For the 13th season, Top Chef headed to California and upped the ante of its challenges. Cutely called Last Chance Kitchen, it had a similar taste to the sabotage on Cutthroat Kitchen. You can watch the whole series on Amazon or iTunes if you don’t have cable.
- Outstanding Reality-Competition Program
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
Jerry Seinfeld kept us laughing throughout season eight of his Crackle show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The variety talk show proves you don’t need to be in a studio in front of a live audience to make people laugh — an antique car and a dive-y coffee shop will do.
- Outstanding Variety Talk Series
You may never want to eat out again after watching South Park‘s “You’re Not Yelping” episode from season 19, which you can stream on Comedy Central. Be warned: NSFW.
- Outstanding Animated Program: “You’re Not Yelping”
- Outstanding Animated Program: “The Horse Rider-er”
