top-chef-emmy-red-carpetThe official list of 2009 Emmy Award nominees was released today -- and as always, the list contains fairly unsurprising results as far as culinary shows are concerned.

Gordon Ramsay's "Hell's Kitchen" earned its third Emmy nomination in a row for Outstanding Art Direction for a Multi-Camera Show. However, the show has never won an Emmy. This year, "Hell's Kitchen" is up against "The Big Bang Theory," "How I Met Your Mother," "The New Adventures of Old Christine," and "Saturday Night Live." (Meaning: very slim odds for winning this year.)

"Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" received two Emmy nods this year, in the categories of Outstanding Cinematography for a Non-Reality Show and Outstanding Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming. This is only Bourdain's second Emmy nomination, though, following his 2007 nomination of the critically-acclaimed Beirut episode.

The most-nominated cooking program for 2009 is Bravo's "Top Chef." The show earned four this year: Outstanding Picture Editing for a Reality Show, Outstanding Cinematography for a Reality Show, Outstanding Programming - Nonfiction, and Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media - Nonfiction.

Of the three, "Top Chef" is the only recipient of an Emmy in previous years. Will 2009 be any different?

You'll be able to find out on Sunday, September 20, when the Emmy Awards will air on CBS at 8:00 p.m. ET. In the meantime, you can find a complete list of nominees on the Emmy Awards website.
