Here they are, the winners of this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Mind of a Chef — the show produced by Anthony Bourdain’s Zero Point Zero crew — walked away with three awards; it had been nominated for five.
Also no surprise: Ina Gartens’ Barefoot Contessa series picked up another trophy for Outstanding Culinary Series, beating out Mind of a Chef, Guy’s Big Bite, and Martha Bakes for the award. Both Martha Stewart and Ina Garten won James Beard Awards this past weekend as well.
The hosting crew on ABC’s The Chew — Mario Batali, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly, Daphne Oz and Michael Symon — won Emmy awards for Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host. Outstanding Culinary Host went to Bobby Flay for his work on Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction.
PBS’ A Chef’s Life Director Cynthia Hill won an Emmy for Outstanding Directing in a Lifestyle/Culinary/Travel Program.
Mind of a Chef scored big on the technical side of things. It won the awards for Outstanding Main Title and Graphic Design; (Creative Director – Graphics: Adam Lupsha; Animator: Dan de Graaf; Character Design: Mike Houston); Outstanding Single Camera Photography (Directors of Photography: Jeremy Leach, Ian McGlocklin, Ethan Mills); and Outstanding Single Camera Editing (Editors: Mustafa Bhagat, Angie Dix, Jon Philpot).
Lastly, everyone’s hero Betty White took home a Lifetime Achievement Award.
