The nominations just keep on coming for chef Sean Brock, who now has a chance at claiming an Emmy statuette.
Brock and April Bloomfield are nominated in the “outstanding culinary host” category of the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards for their PBS program, The Mind of a Chef. The National Academy of Television Art & Sciences announced the nominations this morning.
The nomination prevented a Food Network sweep: Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis and Rachael Ray represent Brock and Bloomfield’s competition.
Although many PBS stations broadcast The Mind of a Chef during evening hours, there are no culinary categories specifically associated with the more prestigious Primetime Emmys. But the Daytime Emmys boasts an assortment of them, and The Mind of a Chef fared well.
In addition to the hosting honors, the show received nominations for Outstanding Culinary Program and Outstanding Directing in a Lifestyle/Culinary/Travel Program. It was also nominated for outstanding achievement in main title and graphic design; single-camera photography; single-camera editing and sound editing (live action.)
Winners will be announced at a Beverly Hilton Hotel ceremony on June 22.
