This week, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences awarded Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program.
The series won award over co-nominated Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs, Antiques Roadshow, Undercover Boss, and Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List.
Oliver thanked his production team in a press release on his website:
A massive congrats to the team – we won the Emmy for the Food Revolution, guys! Such amazing news! I’m so proud. Big love to all involved in Huntington.
Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution was set in Huntington, West Virginia. Prior to the start of the ABC television series, the town had been named America’s unhealthiest city.
