Beard Awards Will Finally Determine ‘Best TV Food Personality’


That Outstanding Chef nomination may not be the only one Tom Colicchio snags at the Beard Awards this year. Were told that in a nod to these Top Chef times, the Foundation is adding the category of Best TV Food Personality, and will announce nominees when all finalists are unveiled March 22 (the winner will then be announced at the Book & Media Awards on Sunday, May 2). Adding to that, the TV Show category has been split into TV Show: In Studio or Fixed Location and TV Show: On Location, and the TV Special category will now be named TV Special/Documentary. Gotta wonder if awards host Alton Brown will be up for any of these.
