Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations leads the pack with four nominations -- Outstanding Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming, Outstanding Cinematography for Nonfiction Programming, Outstanding Nonfiction Series and Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Programming.

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution got a nod for Outstanding Reality Program. The show won the same award in 2010 for its first season. 

Top Chef released a sexy ad of Padma Lakshmi earlier this year in the hopes of gaining some Emmy attention and it certainly seemed to work. The show is nominated for Outstanding Reality -- Competition Program, Outstanding Cinematography for Reality Programming and Outstanding Picture Editing.
