Justin Timberlake and Louis C.K. shine as 'New Girl' is snubbed
Winner: Anthony Bourdain
Anthony Bourdain snapped up quite a few Emmy nods (including Outstanding Informational Series and Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Programming) for his worthy "Parts Unknown" travel series. Alas, an Outstanding Reality TV Host nod came from a less impressive source: "The Taste." While he's always a smart and funny on-screen presence, his talents were largely wasted on the insipid cooking competition. Frequently he seemed bored at best, annoyed at worst, and it was always clear a show like this would never make great use of his talents. Here's to many wins for Bourdain -- but hopefully not for "The Taste."
